Happy Easter. Happy Opening Day
I was like a kid awaiting the games at Dodger Stadium. We have a new shuttle bus that takes us from Union Station to our happy place that is Our Lady of Chavez Ravine, Dodger Stadium! I found out from Josh Rawitch, Dodger Vice President of Communication that indeed the shuttle bus started on Thursday when the Dodgers met the Indians in the first exhibition game.
Here are my friends Oscar and Jesse (Azul4life) posing infront of one of the busses. So good to see you guys again this year!
It was great greeting security guards, ushers and just everyone that works at Dodger stadium and of course my fellow Dodger fan friends!
Thursday night, Matt Kemp signed my copy of Maple Street Press Dodgers 2010 Annual! I highly recomend the magazine!
The second game was at Angel Stadium Friday night so I just watched it on TV. Took this picture from the TV
Saturday’s game was back at Dodger Stadium at 1:p.m. Here is Tony Jackson who used to be the Dodger beat writer for the Daily News. He now works for ESPN Los Angeles! I am so glad you are back covering the Dodgers Tony!
Here is Ken Levine, the other part of the duo of Dodger Talk.
And here I am with the Chipmunks!
We lost the exhibition games, but we had fun! Erik and I greeted Vin Scully!
During the game, my friend Erik asked me if I wanted to go to the LA Cathedral for Easter Vigil so after the game, I dropped him and one hour later went to pick him up.
While we were wating for the Easter Vigil to start and while enjoying a cup of coffee, we scanned donors names here. Notice you can see the freeway below and that building across is a high school.
We ran into Sandra and Vin Scully as part of the names of donors!
See the name before Vin? Eli Broad was in the running to buy the Dodgers when the McCourts were buying the team.
Here is also Mr. & Mrs. Peter O’Malley.
Did you know that Gregory Peck final resting place is the Los Angeles Cathedral Mausoleum?
The lighting of the Easter candle and the blessing of the fire at the Easter fire hearth on Cathedral Plaza.
The oldest one being baptized was this 83 year old man.
Although I am Catholic, that was the first time I attended an Easter Vigil. It is a wonderful ceremony that I hope to attend every year.
Happy Easter everyone!
Happy Opening Day!
I am super excited to start another season! Now is for reals! Let the games begin!
Let’s go Dodgers!
Let’s go Vicente Padilla!
