Drei’s Tales… The Magic of The Rally Pet Minion Dave

Wednesday,  September 24th.  The day started off like most normal days. The Pet Minion Dave giving his owner Drei some good company in his office .  Dave is really excited.  Dave knows that later on that evening, Drei is taking him out for a Wednesday night ballgame at The Ravine for a huge matchup with the hated ones.   Dave is also excited because he knows this could be the night the Dodgers clinch the NL West with Kershaw on the mound.   Dave is also excited because he knows he’ll get to see his favorite playmate, Uncle Marly,  whom some of you may know from  as,  Kid Marly Marlz from past posts on Ballparks, Bytes and Bites

Wednesday morning,  9/24/2014.  Starting the Dodger Blue Out early !   Our Pet Minion Dave keeping his owner Drei company in his workplace.  Don’t let the doo-rag scare you folks.   Dave is really a fun-loving and, at times,  a mischievous character…

Boyz Night Out

MARLZ_JJ_DAVE Dave loves hanging out with The Boyz of Summer, JJ and Marly.  Dave has really found himself quite attached to The Boyz, especially to Marly.  Recently, he tagged along with The Boyz on a road trip to PETCO Park to see their Boys In Blue in action…

Pet Minion Dave and his favorite Uncle Marly have really developed quite a bond.  Last time out at The Ravine, before the evening ended, Uncle Marly was going all emo…

MARLY_EMOAwe.  It’s OK Marly.  You’ll see Pet Minion Dave once more before the season ends.  Heck, the next time you two see each other, it just may be a special evening…. Looks like you’ve also developed quite a bond with other mascot friends Sourdough Sam, the SF 49ers mascot, and the Mariner Moose.  .  Just keep the Mariner Moose away from Sammy.  Sammy isn’t very fond of the Moose’s favorite NFL football team…

Game Night, 9/24/2014, Time To Lock Up the NL West…

It’s Game Night !  Win tonight over the hated ones, and the Dodgers are the 2014 NL West Champions !  Of course, we had to bring our lucky  Pet Minion Dave…

MALRZ_DAVE1 Our lucky Pet Minion Dave, reunited with his Uncle Marly.  Looks like Uncle Marly has his game face on tonight…

DAVE_MARLY2 These two mischievous characters could not be more so alike if they tried.  As the evening went along, Dave’s Uncle Marly , Kid Marly Marlz, would bring up the great time they had with Drei and JJ    at PNC Park in San Diego…

Drei: PNC Park ?

Marly: Where we went in San Diego ?

JJ: That’s PETCO Park ! 

Drei:  C’mon Marlz !!!  Get your yard straight !!! 

Speaking of JJ, as the game cruised through 4, Kid and Drei  would surprise JJ, with the help of all fellow Dodgers fans in Upper Reserve 60…

Nothing beats being serenaded on your birthday at the old ballgame, right ?

Moving right along, with the game tied at 1 heading to the 6th, and Kershaw giving an MVP like performance, our lucky Pet Minion Dave and Marly Marlz , for some reason or another, get separated. But first, Kershaw’s MVP performance…

Drei: Yo Marlz, where’s Dave ?

Marlz: I thought you had him

Drei: Don’t tell me you lost Dave !

Marlz: C’mon Drei, he couldn’t have gone far…

Drei: How the ( insert word here) do you lose our Lucky Pet Minion ?

Marlz: Sorry Drei !  C’mon, let’s go find him…

Just as the top half of the 6th concludes, game still tied at one, we finally find our Lucky Pet Minion Dave finally turns up.  Turns out, Dave was just hungry for a Dodger Dog or two…

Drei: Marlz, you gotta take better care of Dave .  Remember, he’s your favorite uncle…

Dave had us all worried there for a minute.  Minion Dave has been a lucky charm for us, albeit a mischievous lucky charm…

The Start of The Magic of Pet Minion Dave, or Should We Say, Rally Minion Dave ?

Now that Kid and Drei have found our Lucky Pet Minion Dave, A Cuban Missile is ready to lead off the home half of the 6th, game tied at one, and a division title at stake.  After falling behind on the count 0 and 2…

The solo shot by Puig would give the Dodgers a 2-1 lead.  The Blue would go on to add 3 more runs in the home 6th, and with 9 outs to go for an NL West crown, the Blue finds itself up 5-1.  The Giants failed to score in the top half of the 7th, and now, it’s time to stretch, with Minion Dave and Uncle Marly leading the way…

If the hated ones did not have enough of Puig, Gregor Blanco would learn in the top 8th to never run on a Cuban Missile…

Once again, never run on a Cuban Missile.  Hey Blanco…

What Happened ? (  The snippet courtesy of Jason with his band Red Sun .  More from the JDozer and his band later…)

You may have noticed all this good fortune for the Dodgers has been happening since Kid Marly Marlz and Dodger Drei found our Pet Minion Dave.  Drei is starting to think he could be our, dare Drei say it… Rally Minion for the playoffs ? 

During the home 8th, as the Dodgers are en route to tacking 4 more runs to their already comfortable lead, with Drei calls the action for Ander Ethier.  Dre hasn’t been able to call much action lately for Dre, with Dre being used mostly as a role player these days yet taking it in stride . Kid Marly Marlz and Minion Dave are really enjoying each other now…

Top 9 now, Dodgers up 9-1.  Wow, 8 runs since our favorite little Pet Minion Dave turned back up.  Drei is really starting to feel Dave’s magic.  With one out to go ’til we clinch the NL West, here’s what it was like from our section, Kid Marly Marlz and Minion Dave leading Reserve 60 with the BUBBLES !!! 

Our 2014 NL WEST Champions….

OK, maybe it wasn’t just the magic of Minion Dave that helped.  But hey, makes for a nice light-hearted tale, right ?

DODGER_DAVE The birth of a Rally Minion in the making folks ?  Dave certainly looks cute in Drei’s old worn Dodger hat.  October baseball is coming.  Dave is excited !!!

Oh yeah.  The 2014 season was definitely a fun season.  Like any baseball season with 162, it had it’s ups and downs, just like any great roller coaster ride.  October baseball awaits.  If all goes well, this ride will go through late October…

 VIEJOS_BUBBLES JJ, Kid Marly Marlz and DodgerDrei.  We may be ” Viejos”, especially the one on the right, but hey, no one is ever to old to play with bubbles…

MARLZ_BUBBLES Our Lucky Pet Minion Dave and his favorite uncle, Kid Marly Marlz, leading The Foam Party up in Reserve 60.  As Always Kid… 

Once a Kid… Always a Kid… Forever a Kid… Kid at Heart
