Cruising Through 42…Celebrating 42…

Cruising Through 42…

A recent CA State Assembly passed a resolution last Monday to name a stretch of I-210 in honor of Jackie Robinson, who grew up in Pasadena. Next up, the State Senate. If passed and signed by our governor, that stretch of I-210 from State Route 2 to Orange Grove Blvd will be named the “Jackie Robinson Memorial Highway”. Many a Dodger fan including this one has used that stretch many a times to head to The Ravine, be it with family from SGV to friends from Eagle Rock to family and friends in the Echo Park/Elysian Park area. We can never give Jackie enough accolades…

Celebrating 42…

Having turned 42 over the weekend, it was only appropriate that I celebrate with a theme honoring Mr. Robinson, Number 42…

20160805_182030.jpg Here I am with my brother Daniel, giving a shoutout to 42 from Westwood, where he was a 4 sport athlete at UCLA, to The Ravine. Recently, UCLA took a cue from MLB and has officially retired 42. Current UCLA athletes donning the 42 will be allowed to keep their number until graduation. Though Jackie didn’t actually wear 42 at UCLA, my reasons for proudly displaying 42 in Blue and Gold go beyond Jackie. The story will come in November…The week of SC-UCLA…

So my 42nd wasn’t the way I totally hoped…But hey, there could be no other way to celebrate another year on Planet Earth than at The Old Ballgame, right ? Plus, we ended up taking 2 of 3 from the Red Sox so all is good…

Blast From The Past…

Here I am with former Dodger broadcaster Ross Porter. He did a speaking of Baseball Stories to a captive audience at the Skirball Cultural Center earlier today. The man who once worked alongside Vin Scully sure had a lot of Baseball Stories to tell. It was great seeing and especially hearing Ross’ voice again…More on my experience to come…

Climbing Toward The Top…

With the Dodgers taking 2 of 3 from the Red Sox and the Giants continuing their 2nd half struggles, the Boys in Blue have once again pulled within one game of their NoCal rivals. It’s been a long while since I’ve had our logo to the far left. It just may be a matter of time…Oh the excitement…
