Every Game Is Important
I wanted to start this entry by talking about the passing of Mary Travers of Peter, Paul, and Mary. She had a long struggle with leukemia which ended yesterday. We know her as the harmonious voice who sang about Blowing in the Wind, Puff (the Magic Dragon) and If I had a Hammer.
Also passing on the same day as Mary was Henry Gibson of Laugh In fame. He was not as well known as Mary but still held a place in many of our hearts.
In recent weeks we have lost many people of our past including Michael Jackson, Farrah Fawcett, Patrick Swayze and Edward Kennedy. May they rest in peace. Prayers for their families.
Every game for the Dodgers from now on is crucial. I worried about the Pirates. Even after the win on Monday, I still worried.
Tuesday was fleece blanket day so I scurried around getting my blankets. I bought an extra ticket so my Dad could have his own too. Therefore I did not make it to my seat in time for batting practice. Sacrifices I make!!
Randy Wolf was the starting pitcher for the Tuesday game. He had been out because of a hyperextended elbow.
Of course, Linda was there with her wolf hat, wolf earrings, wolf teeshirt, etc. I asked her to not scare him off.
He looked pretty good. He makes funny faces while he pitches so it was difficult to get a good picture of him.
Here is one of his back
It was law enforcement day. Many officers were awarded medals of valor for their bravery. The police also presented the colors.
