The Last Regular Games at Dodger Stadium

I am getting sad that is the next to the last game at Dodger Stadium.   No matter what like Frank Sinatra’s song said “It was a good year”    Dodgers have new owners and will put a good product on the field.

This year my friends and I went to Spring Training for the first FanFest there.   It was six women and a guy in a van.  What fun hat trip was!

pictures from that trip here:  http://crzblue.mlblogs.com/?s=six+women+and+a+man

Three of us returned to Spring Training to watch a few games.   We went to the four game series in San Diego that started with Opening Day there.   San Diego is always a lot of fun.

Lorena, Rosie and I headed to Seattle.  We saw the Dodgers get no hit by six pitchers but the Dodgers took the series.    Rosie and I went to see our Bums at Cincinnati, a new stadium for the two of us.   In between I went to the SABR convention in Philadelphia, haha I am thinking of next year.  I meant Minnesota where I met up with more friends there and made some new ones.

There were some frustrating losses but win or lose, we love our Boys in Blue!   Last night Rosie, Lorena Pricilla and I were reminiscing about our road trips and hanging out at Dodger Stadium.   There were more good times than bad times.  Maybe I am just remembering the good times.

What a fun game last night!   Boys played like they are capable of playing but now they are running out of time.   Here are some of my pictures from last night’s game.  Some of the pictures Lorena took.   Some days she just says “Give me your camera Emma”  She knows I get busy keeping score and miss some pictures opportunities.

I have not met Cochito Cruz yet.  I don’t have his autograph or a picture with him but maybe tomorrow!  Today I will be at the stadium by game time. (I hope I hope).

Herrera came with this record:

Cochito left him without a shirt?  that is Ok, Cochito gives him his jersey

Bam!  got you!

Dodgers Win!

Fun fun game!

Oh and prior to the game, I  got interviewed by Ben Platt of MLB :-)  for the MLB Blogs.    I was a tiny little nervous.   The interview took place   of the Dodger Dugout.  Thanks Ben!!  Thanks Mark!!

Let’s Go Reds!   Letg’s go Dodgers!

Splurging on Dugout seats for Wednesday’s game. 

Tomorrow Lore, Rosie, Ilda and I splurged buying dugout seats.  We are going to be behind enemy lines but we will be there.   Our friend Jeanine suggested we try some Santeria, voodoo dolls to bring bad luck to the Giants.  haha.

Dodgers Sweep the Rockies. I am just waiting for Monday.

Dodgers Sweep!

Dodgers sweep the Rockies!  Is so good to be seeing the Boys in Blue playing well!   Now the Giants come to town starting tomorrow but before the game…

I am just waiting for Monday.

A few years back I went on a Dodger road trip to Phoenix.  All decked in Dodger blue, my friend Erik and I were having having lunch at the Cheesecake Factory  The waitress asked us if were going to the Dodger game.   We said yes and she said  “I am just waiting for Monday”

She came back with our drinks and starts talking about being a Cubs fan, about the Cubs in town starting Monday and having tickets for Monday’s game.    After she left,  Erik  says “I thought she was talking about Rick Monday”   I tell him “Mee too!”   and we started  laughing.

It was an inside joke for us.  We would drop the “Iam just waiting for Monday”  and we would start laughing

So why am I saying “I am just waiting for Monday!’   Ben Platts of MLB will interview me for the MLB Blogs!   Is going to be a video interview.

Bobby Castillo back at Dodger Stadium!

I was glad to see Bobby Castillo back at Dodger Stadium!   He had suffered a stroke back in May and had been recuperating.
