Tonight is Manny’s bobblehead night and as expected the game was declared a sellout a few days back. With Manny being hit on the wrist by Homer Bailey last night, we are not sure if he will play. We were put at ease when it was announced at the stadium that the X-Rays were negative.
Chad Billingsley, chasing that illusive win #10 goes against Bronson Arroyo. . Good luck Billz!
Kiss-Cam and James Loney. Last Saturday when they were showing on the big screen couples kissing, they showed a young woman with a very colorful sign saying “Kiss Me Loney!”. James Loney was not playing that night so when he saw the sign from the dugout, he came out scanning the crowd for the sign and sent a kiss. Of all the Dodger players, I think Loney is the one that is quiet and shy, so it was funny seeing him do that. When he noticed the camera was showing him on the big screen, he smiled embarrased and went and he went back into the dugout laughing. It was funny!. Usually signs are not permitted at Dodger Stadium but every once in a while fans do sneak them in.
Juan Castro and his at bat music. Juan Castro started the other day for Orlando Hudson. When they played his at bat music, you could hear all around the stadium including my friend Lore and I with the typical yells like “AHUA” when hearing a good mariachi. The name of the song is “La Negra” or “Al Son de la Negra” here it is if you want to hear it. coudl not do the youtube.
Casey Blake…Is he Mejicano? When we started hearing the Mexican song “La Negra on Tuesday, my friend Lore and I looked at each other. She said “Is Casey Mexican?”. We even got a text from my brother Vic asking about it. My friend Lore answered “well, he is a Doyer.”.
.Bowling with James Loney and company; Thursday is a day off and is the annual Dodgers bowling event to benefit the Dream Foundation. It is about $850 per person so a little too steep for me, besides I should be on the D.L as i have a bum shoulder. Still I am heading to the game soon.
With the Marlins in town this weekend, the upcoming events are:
Friday night. A tribute to Elvis Night_ Fireworks.
Saturday night.. Hollywood Star Night. with that softball game starting at 5.

Let’s go Dodgers!!!
Back in LA after watching all four games in San Diego against my Bums! Bad loss Thursday! Corey Wade lost the game but it was a loss by the whole team. Too many runners left stranded. The team can drive us nuts sometimes with some tough losses but there we are back again watching them and feeding our addiction.
As my friend and I were watching our boys in Blue boarding the bus on their way to the airport to head to Arizona we were saying that if we would have planned it well, we could have taken off to Arizona! Is that insane?
James McDonalds did not fair well on his major league debut in Arizona. He left after 2 1/3 innings. Kuroda has been placed in the 15 day DL with a strained left oblique muscle. Erik Stults has been recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque to start Saturday. Oy Vey!
Monday will be the home opener! I can’t wait to be back at OLOCR (Our Lady of). The team drive us nuts sometimes with some losses but there we are back again watching them and feeding our addiction.
Between the four different weekends at Camelback Ranch and the 4 days in San Diego, I have been living out of a suitcase. I was reminded at work that I need to make a business trip back East. Maybe if I am lucky, I can combine it with a road trip.
Woohoo! I have been invited to the premiere of the Dodger movie “Bluetopia” on Saturday 4/18. Information about the movie Bluetopia here Bluetopia I met Tim Marx last year while he was filming at Dodger Stadium and also on road games. I can say that he sure was working hard making this film. I am sure it is going to be great!. I can’t wait to watch it!
For the Ethierholics!
For Doguie’s fans:
Rest in peace Nick Adenhart….
