Celebrating 55 Years since 55 at the Dodgers Home Opener

The day was finally here! The Dodgers Home Opener!   I could hardly sleep the night before of the excitment!  This IS CHRISTMAS FOR ADULTS!!

My friend Erik and I have planning for this day getting our costumes together.   Erik was dressed as  Willard Mullin’s Brooklyn Bum and I as superfan Hilda Chester.

I was hoping to have a video that my brother Vic was recording but I don’t know how to put it here and it got to be too late.   Wish you could see my friend’s feet.  He cut one of his shoes to really look like a bum and I am wearing sox with shoes like pictures I have seen of Hilda.  

If you don’t know who Hilda Chester was, look it up!  She is even in the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Complain.   A security guy at Dodger Stadium in the field level was following us around make sure that we turned our bags (they were bags where we put stuff like our radio, magazine)  inside out.   He did not want what we wrote about to show.   What is wrong with what it says!???    “This IS Next Year”   “Hilda is Here!”     Security guy (I think his name is Guy) should have been more concern with fans (guys and women)that were drinking too much. I won’t go into some detail of some disgusting things I saw).   I know no signs are permitted at Dodger Stadium but these are bags Erik’s mom made for us!   I also took off the inside of my cowbells so I was not making any noise.    

WE WON!   We won 9=5!  

Manny went yard!

Beadrless Casey Blake went yard!

Matt Kemp went Yard!   His GF was at the game.  

Andre Ethier went Yard!

 I have more pictures but super busy at work because I took the day off yesterday!  Note:  I started this entry last night at home and just finished it off today.   Thank you all for reading!
