OK I barely had time today to post the pictures from the 70’s night at Dodger Stadium. Lots of pictures for lots of laughs.
Brady Bunch actor Barry Williams. He said “That looks like my hair in the 70’s.
The famous Roberto of Vinscullyismyhomeboy took this picture. Jon Soo Hoo had asked me to pose with his poster. I did not noticed I had buttoned the shirt wrong until an usher in the club level pointed it out to me!
The scores for the Dodgers Padres games were:
Friday: 4-3, Win: Jeff Weaver, Save: Broxton
Saturday: 4-1. Win: Kershaw, Save: Broxton.
Sunday: 1-0 Win: Billingsley, Save: Broxton.
And that was a win and THREE saves for my fantasy baseball the Locos Azules. I beat out Rays’ Renegades’s team this week! Woohoo!
Ok, here are some pics from SD. This is from the hotel:
Friend Linda altered her Beat LA t-shirt. She moved the LA and SD so it became “LA Beat SD”. I love it Linda!
Here is Dee showing her “Beat LA” towel altered saying “Can’t Beat LA”
Here is this lady with a sign for the Loney song:
And here is Loney at bat:
Jack: I don’t like you no more. I am glad you got charged $20 for popcorn at the movie!
Saw this picture when watching the replay of the game. Here is Elisa, Lorena and I on Sunday while Adrian Gonzales is walking back after striking out. We are infront of the the two Dodger fans walking.
Here is the little broom I took Sunday. Is really smaller than it looks in the pic from my phone.
Andre Update: Andre Ethier had a splint placed on his broken right little finger Sunday. Ethier broke Saturday night in batting practice. Ethier explained that the finger “contorted” under the knob of the bat during a swing and the pressure of the bat cracked the first knuckle. Get well Andre!
I am glad I went to the game last night! After seeing the Dodgers give up 22 runs in two innings, but like my friend Bluetide said “who am I kidding?, I am a junkie!”
Congratulations to Ely for a great performance. You deserved the win kid but you know it became a team win.
Congratulations to Andre for his second grand-slam of the year! And his second walk-off this year!
Happy Birthday James Loney!
Loney turns 26 today!
Off to the stadium soon. Wish my alergies were better.
I hear from several fans that they will stop going to games because of status of the Dodgers concerning the ownership but for me…
I am not willing to miss seeing Kemp, Ethier, Loney, Kershaw, Billz, Broxton and Russell, my favorites! Nope, I am not going to miss hearing Vin Scully at the games.
There is no better sound than when I walk inside Dodger Stadium and I listen to Nancy Bea in the background while I walk over to the bullpen area and I hear the sound the ball is making as it hit the mitt. The boys in Blue on the field hitting BP and the pitchers in the outfield catching some baseballs.
Vin already made my day last Sunday by smiling and waiving at my friend Erik and I when we greeted him and wished him to have a happy Easter.
Nope, no matter what, I will be at the stadium, day in and day out. Is is my happy home, it is my home away from home.
There is Sandy Koufax on this picture walking to the field. He is also on the big screen.
When I am at Dodger Stadium and I look to the field and then take the rest of the view from there with the mountains in the background, all is right with the world.
Yeah, there will be some games that I will be cursing under my breath, but they will others that will be exhilarating and no better way to share those moments than with my friends at the stadium.
Let the second game begin in Pittsburgh! We got 22-year old Clayton Kershaw going this evening.
For those giving Joe Torre a hard time for starting Padilla for the Opener on the road, I say to them, did you hear what Vin Scully said ? If you did not, here it is:
“In Showbiz you would say you are opening a big musical and you would say “Padilla, you are singing the lead in Hartford, Connecticut. And you would say “Kershaw, you are singing the lead on Broadway.” “
I love my Dodgers!
First of all, I want to give a big thank you to my friend Mike! Wow Mike! You blew me away with this post! Not only did you give us a wonderful post of our Brooklyn Bums when they won in 1955 but when I saw the title I was what? Wow Mike! THANK YOU SO MUCH!
When I first started reading Mike’s blog, I became hooked so jump on his Brooklyn Trolley for a wonderful ride!
Spring Training in Arizona
I have been having a ball here in Arizona! If you have not been to Spring Training, make an effort to go. Is so much fun seeing the regular players, the ones trying to make the team and others within the organization and those that work covering the Dodgers.
Tony Jackson who used to work for the Daily News and now works for ESPN Los Angeles, came over to greet me after I yelled “HEY TONY!” I am so glad that Tony is back working as a Dodger Beat Writer!
And Mike, yes, the patch is a go! Here is Loney sporting the patch. This picture is also for those that are looney for Loney:
Here is one for all the Ethierholics! is ao nice to see Andre’s swing! Thank you to my friend that I have nicknamed her Juana Soo Hoo for the great pictures she takes!
When I get home I will upload more pictures!
I also have some funny anecdotes to tell!
We had a lot of fun at the first game when we got there about an hour before game time. The following day we got there as soon as they let us get in which is 9:AM. I greeted the players as they made their way through the roped area. Everyone was so nice with “Hey!, good morning!” “hey, how are you?” I LOVE MY BOYS IN BLUE!
Rafael Furcal and Manny seemed inseparable. I greeted Rafi and he greeted me back. And then I said “Como estas Manny” He reponded smiling “Bien, Bien, si me puedo levantar en la manana, todo esta bien.” “Good, good, if I can get up in the morning, eveything is fine!”
Sunday’s game, after no news online that the game was going to be cancelled at Mesa, we headed that way. The Cub’s ballpark reminded me of Wrigley Field. There was a signing with ex-players such as Fergusen Jenkins, Rollie Fingers and Tommy Davis. I stopped to talk to Tomy Davis so I did not see who else was there. As I was talking to Tommy Davis, they made the announcement that the game had been cancelled so after I purchased a ball signed by Tommy Davis, we left. I know I can get Tommy to sign at Dodger Stadium or any event by the Dodgers but I felt that I am helping by making a purchase there. The balls were $20. Tommy signed it “Tommy Davis NL Batting Champ 1962 1963.

Tomorrow we head to Scottsdale to watch our bums play the hated Jints.

Ok, next a pitcher!
I owe a few fans pictures so I was looking at my old camera and found some pictures that I wanted to share
First of all, here are my nieces Kirsten and Krystal. I took them to the Kids corral where kids and adults too might get autographs if the kids ask nicely. It was a hot day in the middle of the summer.
I love you girls!
I was driving to work when I spotted this bus so I chased it down until I could take a picture. I have another picture that I wa closer but I like this one where you can see a little of a mountain in the background. It startled me that I got too close.. i
From the Viva Los Dodgers festival. “ESTA ES MI CIUDAD” means “THIS IS MY TOWN”, the theme for 2009.
This is Dee. Check out her Vin Scully tatoo! It was done by Trublue, a tatoo parlor owned by a die hard Dodger fan.
