Oh fine, any regular readers here, who dont know I love baseball, what have you been missing? And yes, one of those huge personal bonuses of spending October, living in Hollywood, was watching the play offs live, in my own little apartment. Hey, I even got to see the first game of the World Series live, before I had to head back to sanity, and the UK, but anyway…I at least got to see the rest of the World Series, the following day, but it was never quite the same thing. But fine, I was happy, the Royals won it all, lets face it.
But at the same time, watching the home town Dodgers, both live, and live on TV last year, was something quite special. Yes, I suppose they’re Hollywood’s team, so I guess they can be my second, or National League team, oh fine! Yes, I’ve got a Dodgers cap somewhere, though actually I gave it to Dave, as I have less need to keep the sun out of my eyes over here, so would never have used it. Not that I bought it, mind. I found it sat on the seat, at the bus stop, on Beachwood Drive, so took ownership! Yes, helped to make me look cool, and a local down in town, which was handy, as it kept the tour people off my back, most of the time.
But today, as I’m typing this, I’m getting my first taste of live baseball, since that last day, in my sweet little Hollywood apartment. So wonderful! Fine, I’ve seen one game, on delay, the next day, but thats not the same as live. And fine, its only Spring Training, so not to be taken too seriously, but its live baseball on ESPN UK! Boston, and St Louis, if you wanted to know. So yes, given the Red Sox are my friend Kate’s team, it got a little bit more than just any game for me.
Will I get to a live game this year? Who knows? If you asked me at present, I’d probably say no, but I guess, that until September, I can hold out hope. As for spending the whole of October, watching the play offs, in a cute apartment in Hollywood, only in my dreams, unless I win the lottery, and thats not likely to happen, with my luck in any matter! But a girl can dream!
But at least on a few occasions, thanks to ESPN, UK version, I can get to see a few live games on TV at least. Yes, it will only be matinee games, in early evening over here, but there are a few of them, so…
All the same, if you’re asking, Do I want to go back to a ball park, or do I want to go back to Hollywood, you bet I do! I just wish, that at this moment, I could see it happening. Ah well…
So fine, this blog, for those who know Broadway musicals at least, may have worked out the video!
