What’s your prediction for today? And where are you watching…anyone reading this from Dallas and planning on being at the game? I’m going with 31-21 Pittsburgh…and for a refresher on the last time the Dodgers led the Steelers to a Superbowl title, check this out. One thing you can learn from this post is proof that in three years, I still haven’t figured out how to properly post photos on this blog (follow the link all the way back to here for a “photo” of Beimel, Wade and Polamalu).
Meanwhile, Inside the Dodgers jumped from No. 11 to No. 4 on the MLBlogosphere’s Latest Leaders, so hopefully the new content we’re adding is of interest to Dodger fans around the world. And congrats to Dodgerfilms for being the top fan blog among Dodger folks. His video compilation of all the homers he’s caught in BP and in-game caught our attention last week when it got retweeted like crazy.
I remember that day back in September, when Cory Wade, Joe Beimel and I popped by Steelers practice. I took Santonio Holmes over to a side field and we went through some drills, showing him how to catch passes in the corner of the end zone while dragging his toes in bounds. It looks like he finally took to heart the lesson.
OK, so maybe that didn’t happen, but because of our visit to their practice facility and the kindness of their staff in opening their doors to Cory and Joe, two lifelong Steelers fans, that’s who I was rooting for yesterday and it turned out to be an amazing game. Congratulations to that entire organization on an unprecedented sixth title (coincidentally, the same number as the Dodger franchise).
Meanwhile, a group of fans from around the community had a chance to come out to Dodger Stadium and watch the big game from the Baseline Box Club in our second annual Superbowl party. So, with the completion of that game, it’s official. Baseball season is upon us – sure, there’s NBA, the NHL, and college hoops still going on, but we leave for Camelback Ranch – Glendale a week from tomorrow and everyone’s getting pretty fired up.
Hope to see some of you out at our caravan stops tomorrow and Wednesday.
