ThinkCure. The Think Blue sign has been replaced with Think Cure, a yearly tradition in preparating for the Think Cure radiothon and Telethon.
There are some cool auction items there like a chance to shag fly balls during BP, meet Vin Scully, have an Italian dinner with Tommy, take a batting lesson with Don Mattingly. a baseball signed by Koufax, lots of players signed jerseys and many more items. Peter Tilden of KABC said 100% of the proceeds go to the the ThinkCure foundation.
World Cup. The world Cup started today! Two tvs were installed in the cafeteria so we could watch the games, especially Mexico against SouthAfrica today. The game ended up in a tied 1-1.
Here are some co-workers after the first game.
Here are my Honduras and USA jerseys:
Honduras plays Chile on Wednesday at 4:30 AM! I’ll be up watching the game before I head to work! or I can go to the restaurant Rincon Chileno. They will open at 4;30 and serve breakfast from Chile and Honduras.
This weekend is also the Dodgers Angels series. Billinsgley goes against Pineiro. Originally this series was supposed to be at Angel Stadium but because of a concert, the Angels asked the Dodgers to switch series so we got the weekend series! At the end the concert with U2 got cancelled.
Saturday and Sunday, the Dodgers are sending rookies. John Ely will face Scott Kazmir on Saturday and on Sunday Carlos Monasterios will face Jerred Weaver.
Dodgers return on Monday Memorial Day for a 13 game homestand. Lots of games and promotions for this homestand.
Monday. 5/31. Manny Ramirez kids BP jersey. Arizona in town.
Thursday. 6/3. Matt Kemp Action figure (kids only) BTW, I think this picture is lame, but the Dodgers posted it asking for a caption.
Give me a caption and whoever I think is the best, I’ll think of something to send you. I think that chalk line looks so wrong.
Friday 6/4 is 70’s Day and Loney and Blake giveaway poster. I have not seen the poster but I’ve been told it has a 70’s Chevelle. Is is Blue or Red?
Sunday 6/6. Viva Los Dodgers. This year every Sunday is Viva Los Dodgers. I prefer it back to only one special Sunday.
Tuesday 6/8. Jonathan Broxton BBH. The Cardinals are in town starting Monday 6/7 for three.
Friday 6/11 and Saturday 6/12 is the THINKCURE radio telethon with the Angels in town. Maybe I can bid on something from Mike Scioscia.
Sunday 6/13 is Viva Los Dodgers (again).
busy busy homestand but before that, the Dodgers are in Colorado for a three game series and that means Vin Scully is back! woohoo!
