The last time they predicted rain this year it did not rain but today’s prediction is 50% chance of rain at game time, 60% by 8PM, 70% by 9PM. I am still heading to the stadium. Here is a link to check weather at all stadiums:
Oh Oh, it says “Severe Weather alert” from above website. I am still going…I got a rain jacket that has no hood but I have a big plastic bag. I don’t remember the last time there was a rainout at Dodger Stadium.
Dodgers lost a close one yesterday when Javy let the game get away in the 9th with the score tied at 3-3. Remember Javy: Short memories for those kind of games. Also …oh never mind, I won’t second guess Mattingly. On second thought yes I will. He should have taken Harang out when he first went to the mound.
Beachy (2-1 .47) goes for Atlanta against Ted Lily (2.0 .69) Nice ERA’s guys. I understand that there is already a plan should there be a rainout. Something about Atlanta coming back here after playing the Pirates on an earlier game.
It was sleeved blanket Yesterday. I was getting mine and also collecting three for my friend Teresa who could not make it to the stadium. Carrying four blankets without a big bag to put them in, I kept dropping them. Before I got in, a man wearing a Miami marlins hat asked me if I had an extra ticket. I told him yes but the extra tickets were from a friend that wanted her blankets. He said he did not care about the blankets, he just wanted to see the stadium. He is in Los Angeles for a conference and when he noticed the Dodgers were in town, he took a taxi to the stadium. I showed him around the club level and took him to the field level for batting practice. I told him where I was sitting but I lost track of him afterwards. He was just walking eveywhere checking everything else. Last time I saw him he was watching BP eating a Dodger Dog. Before Richard left to get a Dodger dog, he thanked me and gave me a kiss on the cheek.
I also met Paul, who approached me to tell me he reads my blog! Yes, Paul is a Dodger fan. I was hanging with my friend Kristin Dell in the field level during BP. She said she had never been in the Top Deck so I took her there. Will post pictures when I get a chance. It was very cold last night but the Top Deck was full. Glad to see my Top Deck family there! It made it cozy.
When we walked out I could see Kristin was surprised to see the beautiful view you can see of Downtown from there. BTW, Kristin’s great grandfather (or is it Great-great grandfather) played for the Dodgers. his name: Wheezer Dell.
