I am at work today but only for half a day. I am taking half day vacation today and heading to OLOCR, Our Lady of Chavez Ravine for game 3 of the NLCS.
Things look dire for the Dodgers trailing the series 2 games to none to the Cardinals.
According to @GrandesenlosDeportes from the Dominican Republic Hanley Ramirez has two broken Ribs. As of the time I am writing this, Dodgers have not confirmed this. I am praying the results are still negative.
Talking about praying, yesterday I googled St Rita church. As some will remember a while back I did a post on St. Rita being the patriot Saint of Baseball http://crzblue.mlblogs.com/2011/06/03/patron-saint-of-baseball/
I was looking to see if I had a St Rita church close to me. I found her! St Rita of Cascia church is located at 318 N. Baldiwn Avenue in the city of Sierra Madre in California.
Saint Rita’s Catholic church sign
St Rita is the saint of the Impossible
Needless to say I went there to pray for a friend, for my family, the Dodgers and me.
May the Dodgers bat come alive
May the Dodgers health improve
May the Dodgers defense be brilliant
May the Dodgers pitching continue to be superb
May the Dodgers beat the Cardinals!
Go Dodgers! Heading to our Magic Castle, Dodger Stadium also known as OLOCR.
I am summing the Baseball Gods
so the Dodgers can beat the Giants this weekend. Dodgers need all the help they can get. A prayer to St. Rita too is in order
May the Dodgers bats come alive
May the pitching be superb
May the defense be brilliant
Dodgers beat the Giants!
