Waking up today I just didn't know what to expect. A four year tradition of my dad and I going to the games ended today because he had to go to work =( Here I was with an extra ticket and kinda of feeling down, but I knew once I got to the stadium everything was going to be okay.
I left home 15 minutes until one and just like always I was there on time to be the first at the gate I enter.
Heading to the lines I seen my uncle Robert, aunt Carol and Linda. Then the blue gates opened and we were in the stadium. It is like I never left home, the familiar faces welcoming me, hugging me and saying "we are back" YES and even in the heat I was able to take it and get photos with Dodger short stop Rafael Furcal and catcher Rob Barajas.
Barajas and me
Seen mostly everyone I wanted to see there at the game and like I said being HOME was awesome.
Hearing Vinny's voice "It's time for Dodger baseball" as the team ran out to the field was priceless.
I was able to share the day with a friend, who got out of work to make it. As for the game it was a great pitching dual between Clayton Kershaw and Tim Lincecum, but the Dodgers prevailed with two runs to give them the 2-1 win over the hated Giants of the bay.
Going back to Blue Heaven Sunday!
