Dodgers vs. Brewers (8/3/09)


What an interesting series this one has been so far against the Brewers. First there was Monday’s game, where Clayton Kershaw, the only player to have gotten into L.A. at a decent hour walked four batters straight! On top of that, the Dodgers offense didn’t spark until the ninth inning, coming within a hair of winning. I originally didn’t intend on going to this game. But Cat texted me during the day, asking where I was going to sit. I told her, either in front of the TV or my computer, I didn’t know yet. She thought I was going to the game. She said she had an extra ticket and I could use it if I wanted to. I had to think about it because I was meeting a friend to go over what needed to be done while I cat/house sat for her. We worked it out that I met Cat before the gates opened to get the ticket. I am now officially unemployed. So I’ve got lots of time on my hands before school starts. Everyone keeps telling me to apply for a position at Dodger Stadium.

When I got back to Dodger Stadium, I circled around a little bit, trying to find a parking spot. A guy asked me if I was looking for a spot. He was leaving. It took me a few minutes to park, since he was the last car before the red zone. I wanted to make sure there was plenty of space. I made it by the hair of my chinny chin chin. I got to my seat before the first pitch. I got to the stadium in the middle of the National Anthem. After I walked in, I stopped since the National Anthem was going on. No disrespect, but whoever was singing it, it felt like it was never going to end.

Beautiful scenery as I was walking in.

The first couple innings crept by. I got to chat mostly with the people in the row behind me. They drove in from Fresno. The usher handed one of the kids a little photo of Blake DeWitt. He didn’t know who Blake is. So I explained to him that Blake DeWitt is our YoYo. He’s down in AAA right now, but you never know when he’s going to get called back up. The Creature stirred up the crowd for a little bit. He was asked by security to remove his suit, since masks covering your faces are not permitted. I guessed that was the reason why, and that was the reason Ken was giving on the post game Dodger Talk. I figured. After all, I know the rule quite well since I bring my Wolf hat to every Wolf game. The crowd booed when the Creature was escorted out of the Pavilion. However, Ken insisted that he was not ejected. I told Cat that the Dodgers were going to win the next day, since it was her birthday. She asked me not to say anything to anyone. But since she posted it on her blog, it should be okay? Right?
