Malingering 1, Dodgers 0

This may be the first time anyone has ever heard me say this, but last night the Dodgers lost and I still feel like a winner. My sheer joy was a gift from a generous benefactor who will be referred to as JC, not only because those are his initials but also because he is now holier than Christ himself. JC hooked us up with seats in the Dugout Club, which is where I...

Dodger Stadium: 175,000,000 and PTSD

Tuesday, July 3rd the Dodgers celebrated a cumulative total attendance of 175,000,000 which is the highest of any sports franchise anywhere. To thank the fans in attendance, they gave all of us a free ticket to a game in the Phillies series (July 16-18), and then (augh) they started hurling autographed baseballs (175 of them) into the stands. Now as badly as I wanted one of these balls (I have yet to catch a...

Dodgers, you are hurting me

It's bad enough that I got hit by a line drive on Friday and have a nasty contusion on my hand. But then I sit through 12 innings only to watch Tomko lose the game. Tomko who is 1-6. Tomko who can turn a 6 run lead into a save opportunity (see Thursday's game). Last night hurt. It really did....

Blame Canada

Turns out the Dodgers' "no signs or banners" policy applies to the Canadian flag as well. According the Canadian sports website TheStar.com, security tried to confiscate the Canadian flag belonging to a Blue Jays fan because they felt it could cause fans to be aggressive toward each other. Needless to say, the Canadians in the section were furious, and several security guards and LAPD officers were called to the scene. Well Canada, don't you...

not so hollywood stars

Saturday night was the 49th Annual Hollywood Stars game at Dodger Stadium. This has been a long-standing tradition at Dodger Stadium, beginning in 1958, the year the Dodgers came to Los Angeles. A few years back, they changed the game from baseball to softball, and they started letting people sit on the field to try to catch home runs. There used to be some reasonably famous people playing and Jon Lovitz and Billy Crystal...

Why Juan Pierre's bat got hot

One can speculate a number of reasons, but the actual reason is because he's fucking hilarious. This is Juan at Dodgers photo day. While the pitchers walked around in a little clique and waved and Nomar was shooed along by security, Mr. Pierre was the life of the party. He was dancing and posing and making his GQ sexy face. When we asked him why he was walking around with his pants over his...

Dodgers Finally Beat the Cards!

I was really reluctant to go to the game Tuesday night. For starters I'm typing this in my new living room where boxes of books and junk are stacked up next to me awaiting a new home. I have thawed chicken in the fridge that waiting to be part of pad thai that I've been wanting to cook. And after watching the horror that was Monday night's game, you can understand my reluctance. In...

Let's Stay Positive

Being a natural born cynic, this is hard to say and even harder to do. But the Dodgers did played a 5 hour long game on Sunday and pulled off a win over the Padres, so I will try to hide my disappointment about getting killed 9 to 1 on Monday night by the Diamondbacks, who are now up on the Dodgers by half a game....

Captured and Tortured Beach Balls are Finally Found and Other AM News

- 9,000 people a month turn in their California driver's licenses for Arizona ones - LAT - LA coach builders + Mini Coopers = Mini Cooper limos - bornrich - The only thing worthwhile in the holier-than-thou feature about author Roger Kahn who wants to pretend that there's something wrong with betting on your own team, is this quote by Jim Murray about Pete Rose: "Did Rose bet on the game?" Murray once asked...

Dodger Stadium doesn't like me.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, Dodger Stadium parking fiascoes are old news now. I probably shouldn't even be bringing this up right now, but yesterday the spark re-ignited my Dodger Parking kindling and I'm back on the rampage. You see, I thought I'd come up with a good system, as one night last week I waited for less than 6 minutes to get out of the lot and I was very very proud of my ingenuity...

Keith Richards Says Drugs Blow Today, Prefers Earlier Buzz

The posterboy of rock 'n roll drug excess, Keith Richards, is quiting the illegal activity because of shitty quality, the scrawny guitarist told London's Q magazine recently. "I think the quality's gone down. All they do is try and take the high out of everything." Richards slurred, not specifying who "they" are. "I don't like the way drugs now are working on your brain area instead of just through the blood stream. That's why...

Photo Essay of the Day that has nothing to do with Sunset Junction

Local hero Coop cruised by Elysian Park today and snapped some sweet pictures of dozens of lowriders showing their love to this fair city. Coop explains: I love these cars, and the culture around them. To me, they represent everything that is beautiful, crazy, and wonderful about L.A.So "Take a Little Trip" and join us as we yearn for the day that $25,000 new cars could come with the Low Rider Option package......

Dodgers on a Giant Roll

The only things sweeter than the Dodgers winning their 15th game out of 16 yesterday in the bottom of the 10th from a walk-off home run were how they made it to the 10th, and who they beat. Recently-acquired starter Greg Maddux is how they got there, as he shut out Frisco for the eight innings that he pitched, totally baffling the struggling visitors on just 68 pitches. Sadly, his textbook schooling of the...
