Tonight my brother took me to go see our beloved World Champion (I love that!) Los Angeles Dodgers play against the Colorado Rockies. Dodger Stadium is open to limited capacity, with socially-distanced seating and masks being required. I was happy to see that the mask policy was strictly enforced, with stadium staff on the lookout for people who weren’t wearing masks, and them put them on. Our “pod” of two seats was distanced from other pods, and the transactions for food and drinks are all contactless. All-in-all, it was about as safe as going to the supermarket.
The game itself was amazing (if you are a Dodger fan), with the lead changing a few times, a couple of home runs from the Dodgers, and the home team coming out on top. What an awesome night!
Today was the first day of spring training for the 2021 MLB season and we watched the 2020 champions win in the 7-inning game. 💙⚾
After the Dodgers (my hometown team) finally won the World Series last year, a weight has been lifted and I can now enjoy watching games more. Maybe I’ll even be able to watch the playoffs with less stress this year knowing that they got it done last year! Maybe… 😂
Koa has been using the Rawlings baseball glove that I bought way back in 1990, and one of the leather straps snapped when we were playing catch the other day. We reinforced it with some zip ties and it stayed together for a couple of more weeks, but another strap broke and it’s too difficult to repair easily. I guess after 30 years, all the straps are pretty weak so I think its time to retire the old glove. I know you can buy new leather strips to fix it so I’ll keep the glove in case I need a project to work on.
