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.
The day was finally here! The Dodgers Home Opener! I could hardly sleep the night before of the excitment! This IS CHRISTMAS FOR ADULTS!!
My friend Erik and I have planning for this day getting our costumes together. Erik was dressed as Willard Mullin’s Brooklyn Bum and I as superfan Hilda Chester.
I was hoping to have a video that my brother Vic was recording but I don’t know how to put it here and it got to be too late. Wish you could see my friend’s feet. He cut one of his shoes to really look like a bum and I am wearing sox with shoes like pictures I have seen of Hilda.
If you don’t know who Hilda Chester was, look it up! She is even in the Baseball Hall of Fame.
Complain. A security guy at Dodger Stadium in the field level was following us around make sure that we turned our bags (they were bags where we put stuff like our radio, magazine) inside out. He did not want what we wrote about to show. What is wrong with what it says!??? “This IS Next Year” “Hilda is Here!” Security guy (I think his name is Guy) should have been more concern with fans (guys and women)that were drinking too much. I won’t go into some detail of some disgusting things I saw). I know no signs are permitted at Dodger Stadium but these are bags Erik’s mom made for us! I also took off the inside of my cowbells so I was not making any noise.
WE WON! We won 9=5!
Manny went yard!
Beadrless Casey Blake went yard!
Matt Kemp went Yard! His GF was at the game.
Andre Ethier went Yard!
I have more pictures but super busy at work because I took the day off yesterday! Note: I started this entry last night at home and just finished it off today. Thank you all for reading!
