About Jon
Thank You For Not ...

1) using profanity or any euphemisms for profanity
2) personally attacking other commenters
3) baiting other commenters
4) arguing for the sake of arguing
5) discussing politics
6) using hyperbole when something less will suffice
7) using sarcasm in a way that can be misinterpreted negatively
8) making the same point over and over again
9) typing "no-hitter" or "perfect game" to describe either in progress
10) being annoyed by the existence of this list
11) commenting under the obvious influence
12) claiming your opinion isn't allowed when it's just being disagreed with

Note: The Dodger Thoughts blog has moved to the Los Angeles Times.

My kids like Webkinz.

There are nine Webkinz days on the 2009 Dodger Stadium promotions schedule.

Scary.

Webkinz is the only website that our computer here visits more often than Dodger Thoughts. I have to say the baseball themed room I helped my daughter design for her new huskie is quite nice though.

It's a small stuffed animal for children. They have their own website. When you buy one, it comes with a code that you input. Then it creates that animal in a cartoon version on the website, so you can manage their life. You play games on the site so that you can earn points, then you use the points to buy them things and get them services such as eating, taking a bath, etc.

did anybody else read the last sentence of 3 as "taking a beating"? or does that just mean i definitely am not getting enough sleep these days...

This could be a mixed blessing. If I tell my kids about the nine Webkinz Dodgers games, I could potentially go to nine more games this year than I did last. However, with the amount of Webkinz that we already possess, adding 18 more (9x2kids) may require me to purchase a larger home to house the furry creatures. I am being overtaken! I have refused to purchase any more. The kids however save their birthday money and tooth fairy funds to buy these crazy things!!! My wife likens it to my doing the same for baseball cards when I was younger. I don't quite se it the same way! I have to say the Webkins promotion is slightly enticing.
