As a Dodger blogger, I look up to the man that I call the Godfather. This guy is referred by the name of Night Owl by mostly everyone else. Night Owl's blog is a million times better than mine. His blog gives me something to strive for. Night Owl posts well written articles and has his blog very organized. If you don't believe me of the greatness of Night Owl Cards, please go and check it out for yourself.
Now that I am done waxing poetic about my adoration of Night Owl's blog, he also sends great trade packages. Night Owl and I trade about once a month. We send our packages cross country to each other. He has updated want lists of all the Dodger cards that he needs. His lists make it easier for me to know just what he is looking for. Night Owl always sends me a great variety of Dodgers from all different eras.
Around a year or so ago, Joe Torre's charity that helps children of domestic violence, held a speaking engagement in Downtown LA. Joe Torre, Sandy Koufax and LA Times writer/meddler T.J. Simers were to have a sit down interview. It was a night that I won't forget. Koufax was cordial, funny, and a great story teller. I was so happy to even be in the same room as Koufax. He is a living legend. Even though my seats were pretty far back from the stage, I think that is the closest I will ever get to being next to a God.
Thank you for the trade package, Godfather Night Owl. Your trade packages are always welcome at the platter.
