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!
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!
