I leave tomorrow morning for New York! I am excited about my trip! I will be staying with my friend Abby who I met at the SABR41 convention in Long Beach, CA. Abby is a Yankee fan. Yankees are away so what she planned first is to watch a Brooklyn Cyclone game on Thursday evening.
The forecast while I am there is: Isolated thunder storms. Thunder storms is one thing that I am afraid of but I’ll try not to have it bother me *crosses fingers*
Saturday we will be going to Citi Field for a SABR/Baseball Prospectus event. Details here http://sabr.org/node/2339 then watch the Mets against the Brewers. Abby convinced me to go after she so nice to offer for me to stay with her. I don’t know what else she has made plans for but whatever it is I am looking forward to it all!
The Beer Road Trip for my Dodgers and some Dodger fans.
My boys are in Milwaukee until Thursday, then they fly to Colorado for a three game weekend series then is on to ST Louis. I was trying to workout my flight to maybe stop at Milwaukee first or St Louis at the end but too complicated. My friend William (Deuce’s dad) told me “Emma, I got tickets for you if you want to go to St Louis. He is on the road to St Louis. Last time I checked he was in Oklahoma, home of Matt Kemp. Here is Deuce:
I’ve taken a tour of Coors Brewery in Colorado and of Anheuser Bush when I was in St Louis but never been to Milwaukee. Friend Cindy (see her Dodgers tatoo) and her husband are driving to Colorado to see the Dodgers there.
Friend Cynthia who is an usher at Dodger Stadium is also going to Colorado but she is landing there then renting a car to go to Mount Rushmore. I never been there. I might run into her in Denver as I am making a stop there. She might be catching a game on her way back to Colorado. You all have a safe trip and see you all back at Dodger Stadium!
Start spreading the news….New York New York..
The Dodgers salvaged one game from the three game series with the Marlins and now we start a four game series with St. Louis.
Saturday night, our closer Jonathan Broxton picked up his 7th win! Broxton has the 3rd most wins in the Team! Casey Blake delivered a single in the 9th inning to give the Dodgers their 10th walkoff this year!!. The team had 8 last year
Sunday, Jason Schmidt did not fair well. an error by Furcal did not help and Weaver did not have it. I was so rooting for Schmidt to do better. I believe that Joe Torre will give Schmidt one more start and if he does not do well, that will be it for Schmidt.
Sunday when I got to my seat, there was a nice couple holding a baby and being interviewed by a local TV station next to my seats. I told them to stay there as I jumped over and gave them room for their interview. I was curious when I saw their baby girl with a pink bib and pink hat reading “30 ballparks and a baby.” Baby Sophia is so adorable!! as you can see in the picture below.
I missed getting Judy. Isn’t baby Sofia adorable?
Look at baby Sofia’s bracelets.
You can check their website at www.30ballparksandababy.com. Buena suerte Judy, Roberto and Sofia! It was a big pleasure meeting the three of you. God bless you and keep the three of you safe!
My Dodgers are at St Louis for a four game series. I was in St Louis a few years back when the Dodgers lost all four games BUT this is a much improved team so Go Dodgers!
I am going to check if any of my good friends that are big Cardinal fans in this picture are going to any of the games. I know Linda and I wish we were back in St Louis this week so that we can improve on that 0-4 record.
I just found out my friend Amy from ITD will be going to tomorrow’s game.
Let’s go Dodgers, Let’s go!!
