Driving Down I-5
We’re on the team buses heading South to San Diego and I’m still having some major issues posting things these days, which is why it’s been so few and far between. There’s nothing to report today. I just went to a luncheon for the Central City Action Committee that was honoring “Treasures of Los Angeles” and among them were Magic Johnson, Bob Barker and Frank and Jamie McCourt, who received the highest honor at the luncheon for all that they’ve done for the community and the Los Angeles business community since arriving in 2004.
Otherwise, it’s a quiet day. We played late into last night and took a tough loss, with the rain delay playing some tricks on the two teams. But I’ll take two out of three games any day. If we were to do that all year, we’d have the most wins in baseball history.
Kuroda makes his first start tomorrow and there’s a huge contingent of Japanese media expected to be on hand.
To answer a few of the questions from previous posts, you can still access the blog from the front of the site. It’s in the lower left-hand portion of the home page with all the other Dodger blogs.
We’re in the process of trying to figure out the best way to make video available of the pregame ceremonies from Opening Day, which people are still talking about. Mayor Villaraigosa mentioned it today at the luncheon, which was pretty cool.
And as for replacing Vin Scully when he retires, let’s just say I don’t even want to think about the day that comes. There is no replacing a man of that grace, elegance and class. Anyone who would try could only pale in comparison. For now, it’s not something we have to worry about and it’s my hope we won’t have to worry about it for many years to come.
Will post more tomorrow from PETCO, assuming I’m able to get up and running.
