4th Blogging Anniversary. Haikus to my Dodgers and Baseball

February 13, is my fourth blogging anniversary.   Yes, it was four years ago, a day before Valentine’s Day that I decided to start a blog.   Four years later and 500+ blog posts, I am still here learning and blogging.

I have never tried before to write haikus but I decided to read about them and attempt to write some so here are three

Baseball giddiness
Players report back to camp
Spring sure is coming!

Pitchers and Catchers
A sure sign of Spring Training
Warms my heart alright!

Vin Scully will say

Think Blue and Act Green. First Stop: LA River

What a great idea this year for the Dodger Caravan to make it a community event where the fans get to contribute along the Dodger current and past players!   Today on Valentines Day, the first stop was the LA River cleanup. 

Here are some of the current and past Dodger players waiting to get dirty.  Rudy Law, Bobby Castillo, Kenny Landreaux, Tommy Davis, James Loney and Don Mattingly.   In the background you can see the train tracks, where my commuter train goes by.

Andre Ethier was not there yet but he arrived a little later.  He was coming straight from the airport.

My Loney has a first name, is J A M E S.  My Loney has a second name is L O N E Y.  Oh I love to see him everyday and if you ask me why I’ll say… ’cause Loney has a way with H I T T I N G.  That is what is in the back of Erik and my shirt.   Loney was pointing it out to a sportscaster from Fox Sports so the guy was singing it as he read it.

I scraped my leg trying to pull a shopping cart that had some sharp wires, Christmas lights and whole bunch of stuff.   I had rain boots but it happened above the rain boot. 

When we left, we heard a “clump clump”.  Erik asked me if I had someone in my trunk.  It ended up that was my cellphone I had left on top of my trunk.  

Even with scraping myself, alergies acting up  and losing my cellphone, I enjoyed my day helping cleanup the LA river with Dodger players and Dodger fans. 

It was great sharing this day with friends on Valentines Day! Hope everyone had a wonderful Valentines Day.   I can’t wait to go to Santa Monica tomorrow to continue cleaning up with our Dodgers!
