Lyons first post…
Wow!! I’m a blogger—-albeit with the help of the Dodgers and Eric Collins, but it’s true.
I’m really excited about this! Now I’m even thinking about getting a facebook page and tweeting somebody. (I can do that without getting fired again, can’t I?)
Last week I had to hit the #7 key on my phone four times just to get the letter “s” into the sentence I was texting somebody, and now… I’m a blogger! Welcome to the new century.
Since this is my first entry I thought I might set the expectations for what kind of postings you may see from me in the future.
As previously stated, I’m computer illiterate, technologically left in the dust and otherwise flabbergasted as to why anybody would want to know what I think about a road trip to Pittsburgh in September or any other time. So I doubt I’ll be killing a lot of brain cells hovering over this computer four times a week explaining what went wrong with the bullpen last night.
What I will do is check in to what you are saying about the Dodgers, try to answer some of the questions you may have and try to write about things that really stood out in my mind when they happen.
What you won’t hear from me is a basic recap of what we all saw the night before. If I did the game that night, you already heard what I thought and if it was a game that Vin did…..what else needs to be said?
I’ll be way more interested in what you have to say, and hearing your thoughts on the Dodgers than whatever I write here. I’m sure the Dodgers would appreciate it if I pretty much stick to what happens on the field, but you know me…..I won’t.
There’s gonna be tons of opportunities to talk about how far Manny’s Home Run ball actually traveled or why the 2-2 pitch Bills threw to Pujols in the 7th wasn’t called a strike, and hopefully with your help we’ll get deeper into some of those situations, but the way I look at it, if I go on a 10 day roadie with the Dodgers to New York, Milwaukee and Chicago and the only thing I can find to talk about is the games…….??
