I kept getting texts that I was on TV.
My cousin Edgar’s wife Jeannie tagged me on this picture that she took of the TV screen
Magic was at Opening Day in San Diego along with Frank McCourt & his GF. This picture taken by my friend Lorena (LuvtheDodgers23). Notice Frank’s GF eyeing Matt Kemp
I was having a hard time with my camera. Jon SooHoo of Dodgersphotog.mlblogs.com told me I bounced the camera too many times. Actually it started working better after I had him look at it. Still, I did not take good pictures from afar but luckly my friend Lorena did so I am sharing her pictures:
Opening Day at Petco. Second time Lorena and I go to Petco Park Opening Day against the Dodgers. First time was in 2009.
SkinnySwag! Dee Gordon. I saw him after the game and I told him I have him in my fantasy Baseball team. He said “I am not doing too well” I said that is OK, to early. Lorena pointed to her heart and said “We Love you!” The following day I saw him again after the game and he had done so good that I stopped him and excitedly I told him “You did great today Dee!” He in turned gave me a hug and told me “Thank you ma’am” that so cute of him.
Clayton Kershaw was fighting the stomach flu but he insisted to Mattingly that he still wanted to pitch on Opening Day. He could only go three innings because of the stomach flu. He also collected the first hit for the Dodgers with a double. his ERA: 0.00 and his batting average: 1.000.
Because of the day off today, Kershaw is starting the Home Openner tomorrow afternoon.
Josh Lindblom came in after Kershaw and collected the win. Javy Guerra got the save. Thanks Lorena for the pictures.

Happy Opening Day Eve! Happy Opening Day Eve! Happy Opening Day Eve! Can’t wait to be at Dodger Stadium tomorrow!
I heard Vin Scully refer to Dodger Stadium as the Magic Castle! Well, the Magic Castle just got some extra magic! Is Magic Time at our beloved OLOCR _Our Lady of Chavez Ravine!
The official notice from the Dodgers was titled “The Los Angeles Dodgers and Frank McCourt Announce Agreement with Guggenheim Baseball Management”
As reported by http://mikesciosciastragicillness.com/ ” Mark Walter, CEO of Guggenheim Partners, is the new controlling owner, and the group includes film producer Peter Guber, baseball Stan Kasten, and Bobby Patton & Todd Boehly of Guggenheim. Magic’s the public face, Kasten’s the baseball guy, and Walter is the controlling interest. It may not seem like an important distinction, but it is, though it’s fair to note that Walter is not expected to be a hands-on owner in the Steinbrenner or Cuban tradition.”
Earvin “Magic” Johnson stated, “I am thrilled to be part of the historic Dodger franchise and intend to build on the fantastic foundation laid by Frank McCourt as we drive the Dodgers back to the front page of the sports section in our wonderful community of Los Angeles.”
We are thrilled to have you be part of the Dodgers, Magic! All I can say is
Jeanie Buss tweet to Magic Johnson: Congratulations Magic-sign me up for season tickets!
Just wish Frank McCourt was complete gone.
Thursday was my first day reporting for Jury Duty in Downtown LA. After waiting all morning, a group of us were told to report after lunch (1:30) to the 9th flloor. We were told the 9th floor has an extra security check. Before I went to lunch I asked a sheriff why the extra security there. He said because of the celebrities and cases that …well required extra security.
So guess who is our judge?
I like judge Ito. I go back to Jury Duty today for the final selection of the jurors. I have not been picked. I think I am one of the few that does not mind serving Jury Duty.
While being in Downtown, I picked up the LA Downtown News newspaper Check this cartoon I found in the paper by Doug Davis.
I love Doug Davis cartoons. Check this one out too.
Dodgers have dropped six in a row now after dropping the first game against the Astros.
Without having a blog like http://insidethedodgers.mlblogs.com/where we from all parts of the country can share our passion for our beloved Dodgers, this story would not have taken place. Please take a moment to read this touching story well written by Rhett Bollinger /MLB.
I could not help get all teary reading it. I was happy to be part of this and to finally meet many of the “blogmates” (term used by Sparkleplenty from the ITD blog).
Mr. McCourt showed up Saturday night half way thru the game and sat there with Joe Pierre. All thru Friday and Saturday, oldbrooklynfan(Joe Pierre) kept saying “I can’t believe this is happening to me.”
To Mr. Frank McCourt and Josh Rawitch:
This goes to show how classy the Dodgers are.
