While I was at the El Segundo Library on Wednesday without any internet reception, I went through my game log and figured since I am close to my 150th game, it was time to look over my stats.
A few days ago I posted links about ground crews and tarps. Well, I didn’t look through the MLB video archives till tonight.
I know it’s expected, but it doesn’t mean I have to like it. Apparently, long time Texas Rangers fan Nola Pearman probably thinks the same thing. In case you missed it, here’s the link to the story of how Nola Pearman “follows home run protocol“.
The last 36 hours have been kind of crazy hectic. Yesterday, KABC and Feeldz Sporting Apparel store. I’m a little familiar with the Alhambra area and I didn’t remember seeing the Feeldz before. It’s a fairly new store.
Last night’s game was the first homestand since the Opening Series against the Giants. You could see the newest additions right away, especially if you were coming in from the Golden State Gate. On my way to the stadium, I noticed the gate to the lot behind the Think Blue sign was open. Later, it appears that was how some of the police cars and other vehicles entered into the parking lot. They occupied a large portion of one of the parking lots. Even as I was waiting for the gates to open, I saw several horse trailers arrive.
Can you guess who wins?
I thought I wrote about it, but I guess not. After all, I haven’t exactly been faithful to writing on this blog.
During Tuesday night’s game between the Dodgers and the Giants, I happened to glance up during the commercials. I rarely get to watch the games on TV. Most of the time I’m either a) at the game; b) listening it to the radio, or c) not able to catch the game at all. This time, for once, I was actually able to watch it. I see it’s a Dodger commercial with different “it’s time for” slogans going across. Towards the end of it, I see Travis Schlichting going over to the baseline wall and reaching for a sharpie from a fan and then it ended with fireworks. I saw Travis and immediately said, “aww Travis!” A split-second later it was followed by, “wait! That’s me!”
Okay, so it was an exhibition game. But it was still my first baseball game of the 2011 year, though not the 2011 season. I suppose I could list it as game A and the other game, Game B and then start the count on Opening Day. I was very much ready for Monday’s exhibition game against the Angels.
