Friday Night Baseball

On Friday night we took a trip out to Dodger Stadium. The day before, the most exciting player on the Red Sox, Man-Ram himself was traded to the Dodgers. I think it will weaken the Red Sox enough to keep them out of the playoffs, and put the Dodgers in the playoffs just long enough to be swept out of the first round. Again. But, for at least the next two months, we get some Manny Being Manny here at Dodger Stadium. It was his first game in Dodger blue, so the crowd went nuts every time they mentioned his name. Field a routine fly ball? Make an out? That's a standing ovation there. Even though the Dodgers lost, it was still nice thinking that they still had a chance as soon as Manny came up again.

Best trade the Dodgers have made in years...

Sounds like fun! We need to get to a Dodgers' game one of these days. It is the only MLB California Stadium that Jason has not been to.

Jeri- Thanks.

Sherida- Yes, you should. I would say go eat dinner in the area and then walk over to the train depo and use the free shuttle so you don thave to pay for parking.
