- As you may have noticed, I recently joined Pinterest. See my page here. You can also click on the big red "P" on the right sidebar, at top. The best way to describe it is that it's a library of photos, video and ideas presented in a easy to use format. They tell me it's one of the fastest growing social media sites today, so I felt inclined to join, and I am glad I did. BTW, the Dodger have their own Pinterest account- see it here.
- Left Field Pavilion has an excellent graphic up that celebrates the 1962 Dodgers. See it here.
- Chris Jaffe at Hardball Times writes about todays 50th Anniversary ballgame at Dodger Stadium.
Dodger Stadium was hailed as a step forward, and often considered a model for how to build a stadium. It remained that until Camden Yards came around 30 years later to invent a new model.
- Did you miss Matt Kemp on Conan last night? Well, if you did then check out the videos below with highlights.
