Down the freeway
Took yesterday "off" to play in the KFWB Golf Tournament at TPC Valencia, which was a nice day on the course. The tournament benefited the families of fallen police officers and we had several coaches out there (Honeycutt, Duncan, Warthen), as well as Grady Little, Chad Billingsley, Al Downing and some random celebrities like SNL’s Kevin Nealon. Jose Canseco even made an appearance and I hadn’t seen him since he tried out on Field 6 in Vero Beach a few years ago.
Anyway, that’s why there wasn’t much to post yesterday. The Dodgers Dream Foundation golf tournament is also this Thursday, May 24, and spots are still available if you want to buy a spot or a foursome. Please call 323.224.1413.
Last night after the golf event, I attended the Society of Professional Journalists annual award banquet, which was actually held here at the stadium (couldn’t spend a whole day away, could I?). Jaime Jarrin was the keynote speaker and even though I’m fortunate enough to have heard a lot of the stories he told about his early days as a news broadcaster, it’s always cool to hear them directly from him again. Hard to believe he covered JFK’s funeral, plane hijackings, meetings between heads of states and numerous world championship boxing matches, including Ali and Frazier.
As for today, I’m not making the trip down to Anaheim but here’s the lineup. They might come late, if at all, tomorrow and Sunday, but I’ll do my best to post when possible.
