The song to this point has been somewhat slow…
Oh, it’s a long long while
From May to December
[February to October/November???]
But the days grow short
When you reach September
When the autumn weather
Turns leaves to flame
[Will 2014 burn like an ever glowing star, or become just more embers of a season that’s been charred???]
One hasn’t got time
For the waiting game
Oh, the days dwindle down
To a precious few
The team has played well enough to find themselves sitting a top the N.L. West, on this first day in September. They have managed to improve upon the early season errors and overall lack of good fundamentals. Josh Beckett and Clayton Kershaw have given us two no-hitters that will forever be looked upon as bright spots. Matt Kemp has turned a frustrating few years, back into one of potential. Puig has maintained a nice line across the board in his sophomore season. We have a guy in Gordon who has pleasantly and somewhat quietly taken over and improved upon the lead-off spot and second base position. Kenley Jansen has been for the most part all business when given the chance.
And these few precious days
I’ll spend with you
These precious days
I’ll spend with you
As far as I can tell, everyone on this blog, that was here in [was it late February] when Boy’s embarked upon 2014… Is still around as we head into the final stretch. Over 3 million fans have shown up to watch the team in person. Season ticket sales were up across the board, so much so, that after closing down sales, the Dodgers then re-opened ”said sales”, even if at a higher premium than before. The faithful have even endured a season in which the beloved Vin Scully has only been view-able to a select few. A season in which he announced his intentions to return in 2015.
I don’t know what the Dodgers September song will be???
I do hope it will be one with an upbeat tempo…I do hope it will be a prelude to an October chart buster…I hold out hope that the September Song will showcase the talents of Kemp, Hanley, Gonzo, Puig, Uribe and yes, even Ethier lighting up the billboard. I trust that Kershaw, Greinke and Ryu will give the teams song a solid foundation on which to perform.
The team has one road trip remaining. Which takes them through San Francisco, Colorado and Wrigley Field in Chicago. Meaning, whatever song the team decides to sing…the majority of it will be sung in front of the hardworking, and loyal fan-base, in what once was referred to as DodgerLand..
It sure would be nice to see the Boy’s put together something that has us all humming the same tune… A tune that will forever stick in the minds and blue-bleeding hearts of us all…
Cue the music… It begins tonight, with the energetic Nationals arriving for the show…
