I was watching the Spanish broadcasting of the WBC game between Mexico & Canada when the nasty brawl broke out. Here is the video I took:
Is unfortunate that this happened. Someone could have gotten injured real bad. Poor Aceves was used as a punching bag or as a pinata. You know when the pinata is low on candy and someone holds it from the string while a kid just knocks all the candy out.
I am watching USA against Italy right now. USA is leading 6-2 after a grand slam by David Wright. Seeing Joe Torre walk to the mound to take the pitcher out, I thought I was back to watching a Dodger game.
What an incredible atmosphere at the stadium for the final WBC game between Japan & Korea. Korea had the most fans but Japan also represented very well. The home team was Korea but Japan had the Dodger side. Yesterday’s game Japan was the home team using the Dodger dugout and USA was the visiting team.
The Japanese fans kept chanting “NIPON” (Japan) clap clap
The Koreans fans kept chanting ” DAE HAN MIN GU” (Korea) clap clap (haha one word was put as *** so I edited)
There were several drums at different levels starting the chant.
Here Sunset Blvd with the WBC banner.
The Japanese dugout side
Here’s the Korean dugout side & also meet my Korean friend. Edit to add: Note her hat has Chan Ho’s Park’s #61, a pin with his picture and in the back of her hat says “Parks” She also owns a Chan Ho Park jesrey.
I loved this girl’s enthusiasm for her team. I thought she was going to pee in her pants everytime Ichiro-san came to the plate. She went by herself to the game and she stayed until the final ceremonies were done.
here is a pic of the final ceremony. The Korean players had already been given the silver medals and they are giving the Japanese players are receiving the gold medals.
Attendance for the final WBC game: 53,846! A new record!
3/26/09 Correction: Attendance 54,846. Thanks Malleycat!
It was freezing and oh so windy at OLOCR. You could see some snow in the San Gabriel mountains. Davey Johnson waited too long to get Oswald who was not in top form. .
Soon I’ll be heading back to OLOCR for the matchup between Japan & Korea.
Here are some pics courtesy of my good friend in the Top Deck.
players exchange hats
I was remembering the Sting’s song we’ll be together.
This weekend I get to go to OLOCR! Our Lady of Chavez Ravine”. That is what some of us endearingly call Dodger Stadium, OLOCR! . I get to see her in her splendor all dressed up in her Sunday’s best! I can’t wait!
I am super excited to go see the WBC finals! That USA is in the final four is icing on the cake! Congratulations to all the teams that are going into the Final 4: Venezuela, Korea, Japan & USA!!!
Can’t wait to chant USA! USA! USA!
See you soon OLOCR!
What should I wear? What shoud I wear?
I wonder if flags are allowed for the WBC. If you’d been to OLOCR, you know that banners & flags are not allowed.
