Like many of you I was stuck at work for the start of yesterdays Opening Night game between the Dodgers and Padres. On top of that, I did not have a chance to watch any of the game since after work I quickly headed off to the Staples Center for "Fan Appreciation Night" at the Kings game against the San Jose Sharks. It was the second to last game of the season, and the Kings were still fighting for a playoff spot. I'm glad to announce that they claimed a spot last night and will be joining 16 other teams for hockey's second season.
Anyway, since I could not enjoy the kind of Baseball day I would have liked to on Opening Day I figured I should spend a little bit of time tracking down some videos. Check out what I found.
First of all, the Dodgers have a bunch of videos from Opening Day on their website. Unfortunately, I can't embed them at this time. So go here to check them out.
Here is a pre-game video from MartyTownTV that features interviews with Tony Gwynn Jr. and Matt Kemp.
Oh, Boy! Dee Gordon has quite a glove, via Big League Stew's Play of the Day. This play happened to end the 4th inning.
And to make you smile, here is Bill Murray's Opening Day "First Pitch" at Wrigley Field.
