Historic Night at Dodger Stadium
Well it was a historic night here at Dodger Stadium on Saturday night. The Dodgers defeated the Angels 1-0 without the benefit of a hit. So in other words we got no-hit and still won the game. This is the 5th time in the history of the game of baseball (over 100 years) that this has occurred. Here is a photo to commemorate this historic night. Enjoy!!
My friend Chris has season tickets in San Francisco and my beloved Dodgers opened the season there. I asked my boss (me) if I could go, he said yes.
The Dodgers stumbled and I was depressed, as they started the season with a loss.
1 Week Later…
I asked my boss if I could go to opening day in LA, I hear he spends a fortune on season tickets! He said yes!
I went, we won in a truly amazing come from behind win in the 9th. All hail Milton Bradley!
Ah yes, a new season. I truly believe we can go all the way to the World Series, but that is my job as a Dodger fan… I have to believe… Man Baseball is a gas!
Movie of the month
Kung Fu Hustle
Writer/Director/Actor Stephen Chow makes a very funny film that looks great, and is so good I have seen it twice. A GREAT way to spend 2 hours, I would see it again! Do not be turned off by subtitles, the characters in this film, should all have their own film!

When I was a tiny tot, I was turned on to baseball by my dad,which I have stuck with to this day. Hearing Vin Scully on the transistor radio, making the game come alive was all a nod to pop. My dad always had access to tickets, as you can see at a early age, I grabbed the camera and snapped the pictures of Sandy Koufax. Those were great days, great times, and I was so thrilled. Sandy doing his windup!!! WOW!
Well a lot of time has passed, and lots of letdowns. Every year the fan (me), believes this is the year, but nope. We will be better next year.
I have gone to this ballpark, the lovely Dodger Stadium, for so long that I thought I had seen it all, not jaded mind you.
But a couple of weeks ago I showed up early for the final Dodger/Yankee game, walked to my seats, and my body just lost it’s balance, never had great balance.
Bam! I fell to the right (that is the spot in the picture you see), and did something I never would have expected to do. I fractured my ribs, got to look like a total goof, and yes one more thing, I have now experienced Dodger Stadium first aid. Not bad!
I will live, as will my passion for baseball, not sure about my balance though …
