Blue Years' Eve and Blue Years' Day
In case anyone is looking for entertainment on New Year’s Eve, there will be a nine-hour marathon on Dec. 31 on FSN Prime Ticket to celebrate the 50th Anniversary in Los Angeles.
The marathon will include FSN original programming, as well as other great Dodger stuff from recent years. Patrick O’Neal will host the event, introducing all 15 shows starting at 2 p.m. and going until 11 p.m. Steve Lyons will also make an appearance, walking viewers through the 2008 Rose Parade float progress.
Among the things you can watch that day are:
2 p.m. Beyond the Glory (’88 WS/Gibson homer)
3 p.m. In My Own Words Tommy Lasorda
4 p.m. Dodgers’ Insider – Hollywood Stars
4:30 p.m. In My Own Words Frank McCourt
5:00 p.m. In My Own Words Ned Colletti
5:30 p.m. In My Own Words Joe Torre
6:00 p.m. Before The Bigs Brad Penny
7:00 p.m. In My Own Words Jeff Kent
7:30 p.m. In My Own Words Juan Pierre
8:00 p.m. Dodgers Insider Manny Mota
8:30 p.m. Dodgers Insider Campo Las Palmas
9:00 p.m. Before the Bigs Rafael Furcal
9:30 Before the Bigs Russell Martin
Then, once you’ve slept off whatever you did on New Year’s Eve, the float will be turning the corner in the Rose Parade, carrying legends like Vin Scully, Jaime Jarrin, Tommy Lasorda, Eric Karros, Steve Garvey, Wes Parker, Fernando Valenzuela and, Manny Mota and current Dodgers like Nomar Garciaparra, James Loney, Takashi Saito and Hong-Chih Kuo, as well as fan favorites Nancy Bea Hefley and Roger Owens, who will be tossing peanuts alongside the float. Come to think of it, we’re a little first-base heavy with five regular first basemen, plus Fernando who has made appearances there! But the theme of the parade is an international one and we’ll be represented by the United States, Japan, Ecuador, the Dominican Republic, Taiwan and Mexico.
