The Brooklyn Bum and Hilda Chester video

Congratulations to Andre Ethier on his first grand slam!  

Boy, first the Dodgers are winning 10-3 and then the final score ended up 10-8.   Russ Ortiz could not finish the game.    Wish we still had Eric Stults.   We get chicken wings from Claim Jumper when the Dodgers score 10 runs but as much as I would love the chicken wings, I rather keep the ticket.  

Ok, so finally got the video that my brother Vic took of Erik and I dressed as the Brooklyn Bum and Hilda Chetster.   The was the first and only take so stumble thru it.  My brother ran into a car while walking and recording the video.  

Apologies for the singing.   We should have been given a chance to redo it!

   Wish you could see the Brooklyn Bum flower. It has a petal marked with each year since 1988.

    Hey Emma!
    Can’t stay long, but I’ll try to make it up to your section today! I’m taking my mom to the game today! I’ve got your #; will try to make it up to see ya!!! 🙂

    The Dodgers’ outfield is positively terrifying. Ethier, a thirty homerun threat, Manny, who is still a legit 25 HR guy, and Matt Kemp, one of the two best outfielders in THE GAME. It makes me glad I’m not in the NL 😉

    Hey Emma!
    It was great to see you and Victor! Too bad our boys couldn’t cooperate and win the game (or even get a run!) When you get a chance, e-mail me those pictures; I’d like to forward to my mom so she can have it! 🙂

    Glad the video inspired you and seeing fans with the JAckie Robinson jersey. I love reading baseball history!
    Yep the three Dodgers outfielders are a big thread. Is our pitching that is suspect. Is frustraiting to see the starters not going beyong 5 1/3 inning.
    Let me catch up with things and I’ll send you the pics. Probably tonight I will send them to you. Today after the game, a group of us from the Top Deck are meeting at a local restaurant in Burbank.
    Love the boys in the outfield! Kemp, Ethier and Manny! Good thing you watch the other day and not last night when the Freak shut the hitting.

    Great video, Hilda! (I mean Emma. LOL.) I loved the song and your outfit – especially the shoes and socks! Very cute. Btw, you asked on my blog about the Yanks-Dodgers series in June. I’m trying to go to the Sat game, but the prices on StubHub are insane. Maybe they’ll go down as the game gets closer? If you know of anyone selling tickets, let me know. On StubHub, they’re asking $200 a ticket for seats in the upper upper deck. No way!

      , I AM a Dodger fan and feel that I would love to enjoy this opportunity beacsue I WANT to. Dodger stadium has always been a home away from home for most die hard fans like myself and I have yet to be able to experience such a wonderful opportunity like this one. I want to open up the eyes of my roommate (He’s never been to a baseball game let alone a Dodger game) to how awesome this sport is and, mainly, how much Dodger fans make you feel like you’re part of a family and how the players make you feel like you’re part of their brotherhood. I would appreciate it very much to be able to be considered for this sweepstakes and would love to go and support our team, once again. Please pick me.

    Oh Rob! That was such a great win! El Maniaco came thru!
    Hey Bluedog! Good to read you again! You should have been at the stadium!

    Andre Ethier is a beast! How can he be that good!? Honestly, before the season started I would have wanted Matt Kemp on my team. But now, I don’t know. Ethier is just too tough to get out! You are lucky to have him, for sure.

    Andre was a steal from Oakland. Best trade by Ned. No way I would let him go from my Fantasy team.
