It’s hard to put into words the emotions I felt last night, but here’s the best analogy I’ve got:

You ever had a crush on the girl of your dreams, knowing full-well that things will probably never work out?

Well, last night, the girl of your dreams (and mine) announced once and for all she wasn’t interested, and even though we all saw it coming, it doesn’t exactly make it hurt any less unfortunately.

After finally playing like the team they were supposed to be, the Dodgers snapped a six-game winning streak with a loss to the San Francisco Giants that officially ended their 2012 campaign.

In a sense, the 2012 season came to a close exactly as it should have: excitingly.

For a team that rode a roster full of minor-leaguers for extended periods of time, battled through injuries to two of their top pitchers and saw the fortunes seemingly reversed by a blockbuster trade, a 4-3 loss with a man in scoring position was fitting.

For starters, fans had finally regained confidence in the lineup over the past week. A month ago, a one-run deficit in the ninth may have seemed insurmountable given the team’s offensive woes.

Last night, however, this group of guys had re-inspired Chavez Ravine to the extent that every fan in the stadium spent the entire ninth inning on their feet.

Things got started with an Andre Ethier single, but a miserable at-bat from A.J. Ellis (not entirely his fault), brought Bobby Abreu to the dish with one out.

With Dee Gordon now running for Ethier, everyone held their collective breath, just waiting for Gordon to break for second. Instead, Gordon waited for Abreu to be retired before stealing second with Mark Ellis at the dish.

And then, there was Ellis.

This was the same guy who many blamed for costing the Dodgers a run earlier in the game when he tried stretching a double into a triple and was thrown out easily.

And yet, with no bigger shot at redemption, Ellis stepped to the plate as Gordon advanced to second. Unfortunately for Ellis and the Dodgers, however, it wasn’t meant to be.

Ellis’ lazy fly ball to center field wasn’t nearly shallow enough to drop, and as Angel Pagan squeezed his glove on the game, he was also squeezing his glove on the Dodgers’ 2012 season.

So now what?

Well, for starters, at least we’ve got the Giants to root against for a week.

But beyond that, the outlook is positive in Dodgertown.

This group of all-stars finally began performing as they were expected to down the stretch, and if they play with the talent, heart and enthusiasm they had this week all of next year, Los Angeles is in good shape.

On the pitching front, an off-season to get healthy will be welcomed by many, and could leave the Dodgers in great shape come 2013 with a rotation of Clayton Kershaw, Chad Billingsley, Josh Beckett, Ted Lilly and either Aaron Harang or Chris Capuano.

And yet, 2013 sits months and months away. Well, I guess we’ve got about 12 months to find the next girl of our dreams.

The good news? I think she’ll be into us.

    Getting ex back after a breakup. Am Maria 21 from England,my boyfriend of a year just broke up with me and am 30 weeks pregnant.I have cried my self to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again.Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes ,my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time.Generally he is a very nice guy ,he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along.He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot .After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change.I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with.I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe.He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy,he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy.i was really upset and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Unity can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my bf came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my bf are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Unity . If you need a spell caster that can cast a spell that truly works, I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you.This is his E-mail: [email protected] or Add him up on Whats-app: +2348071622464,you can also visit his website:http://unityspelltemple.yolasite.com .
