Kershaw gets to start game 1 of the NLCS
An a Little Child Shall Lead Them. I heard Vin Scully say that of players like Fernando Valenzuela.
Lefty 21 years old, Clayton Kershaw gets to start the first game of the NLCS.
The rest of the rotation is surprising. I was expecting another lefty in the second game.
Game 2 is Vicente Padilla.
Game 3. Hiroki Kuroda
Game 4. Randy Wolf.
I am having trouble with my laptop so I could not post this yesterday:
Happy belated birthday to John Wooden! He turned 99 yesterday!
I have seen John Wooden at Dodger Stadium catching a game and visiting with Vin Scully.
I was also lucky that I went to see John Wooden and Vin Scully last year at the “Scully & Wooden For The Kids” event. It was an unforgetable night hearing Vin and Coach share their many stories.
Coach conversations always include inspiring poems he recites from memory. Here is one example:
“No written word nor spoken plea
Can teach our youth what they should be,
Nor all the books on all the shelves.
It’s what the teachers are themselves.”
Here is Vin Scully talking about John Wooden:
It is with great sadness that I heard the news of the McCourts separating. Timing is not good. The Dodgers have been a family owned team except for the Fox Sports era that was a fiasco.
Well, we got a game to play in less than 7 hours so let’s concentrate on the NLCS and beating the Phillies!
LET’S GO DODGERS! LET’S GO!
LET’S GO KERSHAW!!!
