The Sun Did Come Out Today!

I mentioned before that after every Dodger win the song “I Love LA” is played.  Well, when we lose (and this is the first one at Dodger Stadium this year), we hear “The Sun will Come out Tomorrow.”.   Well, the sun did come out today!    Is a beautiful day.   We scored 6 runs yesterday with Matt Kemp hitting a grand slam.  We thought that would be enough but no…  The streak is over but we still broke the record seet in 1911 for most consecutive wins at home.   Even without Manny this is an exciting Team!

You could see in the different parking lots that there was extra media at the stadium with Joe Torre’s conference at 4;30.   I was able to get James Loney’s attention while he was stretching to wish him a happy birthday.   I joined my cousins in the field level, yes, we were winning 6-0 and the bullpen let it get away but we still had a wonderful time at the stadium.  

It was Turn Back the Clock Night and the first 30,000 fans got 1959 Retro Radio (courtesy of the flag station KABC) to commemorate the first championship in Los Angeles!   The radio is pretty retro and I also love the box! LAD-KABC 1959 Retro Radio FINAL.JPG

Members of the 1959 team were introduced.    Some were signing autographs by aisle 7.  I saw a fan with a 1959  Dodger program.  What a great thing to have!    Wally Moon signed my program (the latest one) in an insert picture of him.   

I will be back at the stadium tonight for the first of a three game series against the Giants.  Heck I have not missed a game this year.  Barry zito (0-2) goes against our ace Chad Billingsley (5-0)   Go Chad!  Go Dodgers! 

If you are at the stadium and can look up to where Vin Scully sit, notice that he gets up during the 7th inning stretch to sing with the rest of us.  We Love You VIN!!

Let’s Go Dodgers!

EMMA – love the radio. I was just able to view you past 3 posts, Magical Castle, Manny Suspended – Happy B-day Loney and this last one. The view from Dodger Stadium is so relaxing, with trees and hills surrounding us and of course the “THINK BLUE” sign (as famouse as our HOLLYWOOD sign). I’ve said enough about Manny ‘s situation – LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LIFE GOES ON. I do hope that after the whole Manny thing and the last nights game, I just hope LONEY had a great birthday. If not he can celebrate with fireworks tonight after kicking the Giants butt :) LOL! I will not be able to watch tonights game SNIFF SNIFF (I’ll be having Sushi Mmmm! with my sisters in honor of my olders sisters birthday) but I hope that you have a great time and that the Dodgers have a big WIN! Oh yeah I just have to mention that my MARTIN is baaaack! LET’S GO DODGERS!

You haven’t missed a game this year? That’s hardcore, Emma! Lucky you. Have a great time tonight and enjoy your new/retro radio. It’s pretty cool.

OOPS meant to say “I do hope that after the whole Manny thing and LAST NIGHTS LOST, I just hope LONEY had a great b-day” it must of been a tongue twister

Julia,
Thanks ! I am looking forward to the game and fireworks set to the music from 1959! Mack the Night! Frankie Avalon, Paul Anka, etc.

Jane,
God willing, the only games I will miss are three in June when I have to take a business trip to N.H.

MsRussethier,
Martin is picking up speed and so is Loney. I am going to Kabuki in Pasadena next Thursday to just celebrate with friends from the train. hopefully after your celebration you will continue to celebrate with a win!

Here comes the sun
Here comes the sun
And I say “It’s alright”

Little darling, the smile’s returning to their faces
Little darling, it feels like years since it’s been here

Here comes the sun
Here comes the sun
And I say “It’s alright”

Sun, sun, sun, let it come…

Hi Emma! Sad situation, but we’ll make the most of it. That transistor radio looks awesome, must’ve been nice hearing Vin’s Voice on every level.

Some will say “Without Manny, you couldn’t hold a 6-0 lead against the worst team in baseball” (Manny pitches?). The way I look at it, without Manny, we made a 10-6 game a 11-9 game, threatening to the end. There’s a LOT to like in this Dodgers squad, like any of us need to be told that.

Give the Giants hell for me!

Haven’t missed a game this year? That’s so cool :). What an incredible season opener for the Dodgers (winning all the games at home, I mean). And even without Manny, MLB Network is praising your lineup.

Great looking radio!! It’s amazing what cool giveaways other teams have, especially those that draw so well anyway!!

Thanks for your comments!! I appreciate them.

Love the song! Awesome win last night! Stultz! you are the man! and Kemp! Wow! he has been making great defensive plays! Good for Juan P that is making the most of his opportunities with 3 hits last night.

Elizabeth!
I was getting so used to singing “I LOVE LA” with those 13 wins in a row at home.

Ken!
Love the radio and even more the box it came in because of the nostalgic pictures all around.

I’m just catching up on all the blogs I didn’t read over the weekend, being busy with the kids and all. So I have to ask, does the radio get stations besides KABC, or is it permanently tuned to that one? Either way, it is pretty cool-looking!

Sue,
The radio is set only to KABC which is fine since that is what I would listen to AM. I do have my radio I take to the staidum so for me this giveway goes on display at home. The box is so retro. I can’t believe some fans discarded the box. It has an old black and white picture of a very young Vin Scully, a picture of a the pennant from that year. It is just so cool.
