Baseball Players are Soccer Fans Too

I love this! Alanna Rizzo tweeted this:

PUIG Y ADRIAN SOCCER

I love these two guys!

On Saturday  when we saw Yasiel Puig as he was going one way and us another, I called his name, Yasiel turned around and recognized me.  He came over to give me a hug then I told him this time Rosie was with us (If you read the post from Viva Los Dodgers he asked “where is the 3rd one?” :-)) .  He said he looked for us.  he then asked us if we had eaten _We had just had a big breakfast so we told him we did and that we were on our way to a church. He said “I can’t pray on an empty stomach” lol.

Yesterday after the game we went to say goodbye to the players as they boarded the bus that took them to the airport.  Some fans got Adrian’s attention that they had a Mexican flag in support of Mexico playing on Monday in the World Cup.  Adrian opened his backpack showing us that he was carrying his Mexico jersey.

 

Mexico won 3-1.  Now Boys in Blue go take care of the Royals!

Dodgers return the favor in San Francisco by Sweeping the Giants! Woohoo!

How sweet it is to sweep the Giants!  

I was at a memorial for a friend and co-worker that passed away after a long battle with cancer.  We honored her by getting together at one of her favorite places to get a bite to eat and a margarita.  A large group of us had a nice brunch there.   I checked the MLB At Bat twice and I smiled.  The rest of the game I heard it on my way home.  

Kershaw blanked out the Giants 4-0!  

Per Dodger Historian Mark Langill, Last time Dodgers had consecutive road shutouts vs. Giants was 1957 at New York Polo Grounds by Brooklyn’s Don Drysdale (7/1) and Sal Maglie (7/2).

Wish I had that coy of the 1957 year book. 

 I See you Luis “Cochito” Cruz!   Congratulations on extending your hitting streak to 12.   Felicidades!

Sweet Sweep so the broom is back!

Dodgers return to Dodger Stadium tied with the Giants for first place!

Also very happy because in soccer, Honduras defeating Spain in the Olympics!   What an upset!  I was not expecting this! 

Honduras now will face Japan. 

Cheers to my friend Ms M, a courageous woman with lots of friends.  Cheers to the Dodgers for the sweep and cheers for Honduras for the upset win against Spain.

ThinkCure Weekend against the Angels and the World Cup

ThinkCure. The Think Blue sign has been replaced with Think Cure, a yearly tradition in preparating for the Think Cure radiothon and Telethon.   

There are some cool auction items there like a chance to shag fly balls during BP, meet Vin Scully, have an Italian dinner with Tommy, take a batting lesson with Don Mattingly. a baseball signed by Koufax, lots of players  signed jerseys and many more items. Peter Tilden of KABC said 100% of the proceeds go to the the ThinkCure foundation.

World Cup.  The world Cup started today!  Two tvs were installed in the cafeteria so we could watch the games, especially Mexico against SouthAfrica today.  The game ended up in a tied 1-1.    

Here are some co-workers after the first game.

Honduras plays Chile on Wednesday at 4:30 AM!  I’ll be up watching the game before I head to work!  or I can go to the restaurant Rincon Chileno.  They will open at 4;30 and serve breakfast from Chile and Honduras.  

  

This weekend is also the Dodgers Angels series.  Billinsgley goes against Pineiro.   Originally this series was supposed to be at Angel Stadium but because of a concert, the Angels asked the Dodgers to switch series so we got the weekend series!   At the end the concert with U2 got cancelled.  

Saturday and Sunday, the Dodgers are sending rookies.   John Ely will face Scott Kazmir on Saturday and on Sunday Carlos Monasterios will face Jerred Weaver.       

Go Dodgers!

Go USA!

Go Honduras!
