LA Kings defeat Ottawa Senators 1-0. It's good when a team wins a game they're supposed to win. The Kings did just that against a horrible Ottawa team who just fired their head coach over the weekend. It wasn't a pretty game by any means - neither team got more than 30 shots on goal - but goalie Jonathan Quick saved all 29 shots on goal for the Kings to preserve the win. Michael Handzus scored a goal late in the third period to break the tie.
- So Manny Ramirez rejected the Dodger's one-year, $25 million offer without hesitation. Well good for him. Good luck finding another team. Meanwhile the Dodgers are looking at Adam Dunn and Orlando Hudson. And Randy Wolf is looking good to make his second tour-of-duty in Dodger blue
- So I get home from work late, make dinner and turn on the tube. What do I find on FS Prime Ticket? Why it's game seven of the 1965 World Series between the Dodgers and the Minnesota Twins as pitched by Sandy Koufax! The only question I have is why no one told me about this. Apparently Prime Ticket will be airing classic Dodger games every Tuesday. As I'm typing this, Koufax is pitching in the ninth inning. *drool* What's remarkable about the three-hit shutout is that Koufax's curveball was ineffective. He wound up throwing fastballs to the dangerous Twins hitters in their hitter-friendly stadium The Met. The Dodgers would win the game 2-0 getting their third World Series championship since moving to LA in 1958.
