Getting Caught Up
(After touching base with actual Movable Type engineers, I was able to resolve my photo problem with their help. I will get to retrofitting the previous Chase Field posts with photos as soon as I can today. My computer refused to work the whole time in L.A., but I have got it fixed now that I got back to Colorado and I apologize for the lack of posting. I tried, but it just wouldn’t work.)
The Colorado weather and Mother nature had a message for me…. No Los Angeles for you. I had one back… Try and stop me.
Ok, so she held me up one day and I missed the Friday night game in person. I got my heart broke somewhere in the Arizona desert as the bullpen would fall apart in the seventh inning and give up the lead and the game. Dodgers win 4-3 and Ramirez comes out looking like a hero, hitting a bloop single that would put the Dodgers ahead.
During that day Friday, I battled Mother nature the whole way and it looked a bit like this.
I got stuck in Denver and decided to enlist the help of a road trip warrior and a female versed in my history. I knew she would be a fun person to run to Los Angeles with and would make for some good stories. Laura would be just that. A Rockies fan almost as enthusiastic as me, I would end up needing the support in the hardened section of Dodger Stadium pavilions.
On a side note:
If you are ever in Santa Fe and you are looking for a mom and pop eatery with a different but familiar feel, I recommend The Flying Tortilla. The food is cheap at around $8 for anything on the menu and the red chile sauce is respectable. To people who may not eat much in the way of spicy, that means look out but don’t fear the bite!
I wanted to touch base and let everyone know I did get to witness the beat down on the Rockies, Saturday at Dodger Stadium. I was also on the grass, and put a hex on center and left-center while meandering. It didn’t have the power I would have liked!
Of course photos will come and I will break down the very much different experience of Dodger Stadium then that of Chase Field. Let me just put it this way. When a home grown Dodger fan asks you, “Is it always this violent at Coors,” then you know it’s going to be an interesting story…
