A Nation Reacts to Donovan's Goal

I just had to put this up. It's awesome. I don't care what you think about soccer, futbol or whatever; if this doesn't send some chills up your spine then you are a lost cause.

Ugly Ethier

Beckett Blog had a chance to break open a couple of boxes of Topps, soon to be released, 2010 Allen & Ginter set. Go here to check out what they found. One card really stuck out to me, and it was the lone Dodger card they chose to share in their post. It is a Andre Ethier card and, I must say, it is the ugliest drawing I have ever seen. That guy doesn't look anything like Andre!

Some Dodger Videos

Here are some Dodger related videos. Below is a hidden video pilot called "Payback" from the 90's featuring former Dodger Tom Condiotti. It's almost a little painful to watch.

I love fireworks; especially from Dodger Stadium. I only wish the camera-person focused on the fireworks full time. What a great view from the right field reserve section with the trees in the parking lot illuminated.

Campanella's Car

Here is a 1958 photograph of the car driven by Roy Campanella. Overall, the car really doesn't look that bad, but considering the lack of seat belts at the time it's probably not a surprise he was injured so badly.
