Sports: Nomar does it again!

Went to my sixth game at Dodger stadium today and it was another dramatic finish! Nomar hit a walk off grand slam to keep the Dodgers in the race in the 5-1 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Last Monday, Nomar hit a walk-off two-run homer to give the Dodgers an 11-10 victory over the Padres!

There are 6 games left. The Dodgers are 1 1/2 game behind San Diego in the NL West and 1/2 game behind Philadelphia in the wild-card.

Playoff tickets go on sale on Monday.

In 2003, the Dodgers were in the hunt but they were only going to get into the playoffs by winning the NL West and they were playing catch up. It was pretty easy to get playoff tickets. The Dodgers put your money in the bank and collect interest. When the Dodgers failed to make the playoffs, I had to send back my tickets before they would issue a refund. I wonder how much in interest did they make on true believers like me who bought the tickets hoping they would pull it off.

In 2004, the Dodgers lead the NL West (clinching on the 2nd to last game of the season) and put playoff tickets on sale. Between stadium sales and internet sales, all tickets were gone within two hours.

I wonder what will happen tomorrow?

Dear Blog Readers, if your favorite team was in this spot, would you buy tickets?
