When CCompe1 (Carol) posted in the ITD blog, it reminded me of this email I got from Andy of www.Andystadium.com. I had commented on his blog before and he in turn has visited my blog. During Fan Appreciation Day, I was making my rounds at each level. I had gone to see Carol and her mom but my visit was brief as the seats around were taken so I could not stay. This is what I received from Andy:
Hi Emma. Thanks for emailing me. That was the 3rd game of the season that I attended and Ted Lilly was the starting pitcher in all three. It’s funny because I didn’t plan it that way. In fact, the tickets were free because we’d gotten some free ticket vouchers at the Casey Blake signing in Pasadena earlier this season. So Ted Lilly won two of the three games we attended.
We sat in Reserved Level Section 1. You (I hope it was you, lol) were talking to a lady in the aisle seat in Row M of our section, I think. It does look like you were making the rounds visiting friends. I love your Jackie Robinson jersey. We were in Row 0, right in the middle of the row. I wanted to go over to introduce myself but I didn’t want to inconvenience other people to stand up so I could go up the stairs–I had already done that several times earlier.
I had always wanted to meet you and Roberto and other Dodger bloggers and to take a group picture at the game–maybe next season! I’d also like us to be featured in next year’s year-end Dodgers “Thank You Fans” video. Wouldn’t that be cool?
Anyways, I’ve attached the picture. It is you, isn’t it?
Yep, that was me with my game used Jackie Robinson jersey and the giveaway “this is my Town” floppy hat.
I hope to meet you next year Andy! Let me know when you are at our Blue Heaven on Earth.
Is ironic that all three homeruns in the first game of the NLCS were hit by Ex Dodgers, two by Cody Ross and one by Jason Werth. thanks NEd Colletti. This series is tied at one.
Cliff Lee was brilliant in game 3 of the ALCS against the Yankees. He gave up two hits and struckout 13. Texas leads the series two games to one.
Early games on Tuesday so I’ll be checking updates for the first one at work and hearing/tweeting the second one.
Philadelphia at San Francisco 4:19 ET PM FOX Hamels vs Cain
Texas at NY Yankees 8:07 ET PM TBS Hunter vs Burnett
