Weird Saturday without any MLB baseball game. I started my Saturday meeting some train friends at Nick’s in Los Angeles close to Dodger Stadium, a little closer to Chinatown. Nick’s was started by a couple of cops in the 40’s. The place is a hole in the wall but the food is good. I had the huge ham and eggs with a big biscuit that came with homemade jam. It was delicious with the home made salsa.
We were there to see our friend Nora who no longer takes the train as she changed jobs some time ago. She is now pregnant and the baby girl is coming very soon. Nora and her husband Sax are Dodger fans so I need to find some Dodger baby stuff for her.
Afterwards my friend Sonya and I walked to Homegirl cafe. I like the food there so maybe next time we will go there. This time we wanted to check out the store. I ended up buying a top and two loaves of bread. One is a chocolate chip wheat bread. I toasted two slices at home and they were divine oozing with the chocolate that made it seem more homemade. My friend bought some pastries and a nice soup mug.
Whenever you are close to Dodger Stadium, check out these two places.
With no MLB baseball on Saturday, I was switching channels when I ran into a Mexican baseball game between Los Algodoneros de Guasave.
against the Tomateros de Culiacan
I have never been south of the border to watch a game. I saw Marlon Byrd of the Cubbies was playing for the Tomateros.
NLDS Game 6
BUT today is Sunday! The NLDS Game 6 starts at 4:30 PM Pacific Time in San Francisco. Let’s hope the Cardinals can wrap it up today beating the Giants.
The Giants will send Vogelsong and the Cardinals will counter with Carpenter.
Let’s go Cardinals beat SF!
In the meantime the Detroit Tigers are waiting and waiting.
From Last to First. The Dodgers’ win coupled with the San Diego loss took over first place in the National League West for the first time in 2010! . After losing to Colorado on May 8, the Dodgers were in last place, 6.0 games behind the Padres, and have gone 22-7 since!
Kuroda-san pitched his best game against Carpenter but Kuo got the win and Jonathan Broxton the save. Final score: Dodgers 1, Cardinals 0.
Last Saturday my friends and I went to see Ely at an assigned signing at the At&T store in Culver City. We found Ely to be personable and adorable. Here are some pictures:
All about Ely
Ely Signed my scorebook on a scoresheet where he pitched! He looked at it and said “This is Cool!” He was impressed with Lorena who asked him who his favorite pitchers were growing up. I took a picture of Lore and Ely with her camera. Then after my pic with Ely, we were asked if we wanted one with both of us in the picture.
Thank you Ely! Thank you At&T and thank you KABC for the tickets! We sat in the Reserved aisle 7 on Sunday, courtesy of KABC.
Tonight’s game: Clayton Kershaw against Wainwright. This time I will be able to watch the whole game. Yesterday I was working with the Red Cross collecting pledges for the upcoming Annual Blood Drive for Saturday June 19.
This is an annual competition between the Angels and the Dodgers Booster Club. If you donate at this annual Blood drive, you get a voucher for your choice of team tickets, a commemorative t-shirt, a voucher for fish tacos from Wahoo, and a voucher for the Laugh Factory in Pasadena!
DONATE BLOOD! and GO DODGERS!
