Nothing Beats An American Evening At Dodger Stadium
Some here in LA call it 'Blue Heaven'. The Dodgers are one of the most storied teams in Baseball, and Dodger Stadium is one of my favorite places on earth. This is a true American Evening, where you can enjoy America's pastime and let your troubles melt away...
The Dodger Dog was SO GOOD lol. Tonight was Mike Scosia 'bobblehead' night, with a sellout crowd of 55,656 watching our crosstown rivals, the Angels, invade our home to try and beat us yet again lol...
Mike Scosia was one of the greatest Dodger catchers of all time. He is now the manager of the archival Angels. The crowd gave him a classic Dodger welcome, but the Dodgers won the game in the end, 5 to 2.
There is something that most guys love about collecting bobbleheads. Perhaps they remind us of all the great memories of our favorite teams through the years...
So this was our Evening in America tonight. It was also Army appreciation night at the ballpark, how can you get more American than this? About 20 guys were sworn into the service, California's oldest living veteran - a 102 year old woman - threw out the first ball, and a Army female Sergeant sang the national anthem...
A classic summer American Evening...It doesn't get any better than this...
