Glad to see the comments get over 200, but I’m sure that has more to do with the fact that there was no post yesterday. That was with good reason, as I was lucky enough to go out to the Dodgers Dream Foundation Golf Tournament at Trump National, where several players, coaches, broadcaster and former Dodgers hit the links for a good cause. It’s always nice to get out of the office for the day, but it’s even better at Trump National, where every hole is right on the ocean. It seemed like everyone had a great day and our community affairs department, particularly David Brennan, deserve a huge congrats on a job well done.
As for the headline of this post, it’s a reference to Stu Nahan (at left in this photo), who is getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame today. Stu has been a mainstay in Los Angeles for decades and as recently as a couple years ago, was a regular part of the KFWB pregame show. He’s an incredibly nice gentleman and always keeps things light and humorous, even through his recent bout with cancer. I’m honored to consider him a friend and the entire Dodger organization wants to wish him congrats on his latest honor.
Also, in case you missed it, here’s a link to one of Steve Henson’s final articles for the L.A. Times. Steve is moving on to Yahoo Sports and will certainly be missed on the beat. He did an extremely fair job in covering the team over the past three seasons and I’m guessing you all, as his readers, enjoyed his work. No word yet who will be replacing him in the short-term or long term, but we look forward to seeing his articles on Yahoo.com. In this article, Steve wrote all about the Carne Asada Sundays with Nomar, which was actually Nomar’s idea! The event is June 10 and tickets to the event can be purchased on the Reserved Level at tonight’s game or Sunday’s game or by calling 323.224.1435. Spots are extremely limited so if you’re interested, I’d get on it now.
And for what it’s worth, here’s an update on the parking situation from yesterday’s L.A. Times.
