LA Kings Opening Night - Banner Raising


Watch it now.  Pregame starts at 11:30 AM on Fox SportsWest, and the game begins at 12:00 PM on NBC. 

I'll be in the Staples Center for the banner raising ceremony and the first game of the post-lockout season.  I'll be cheering, screaming, and going hoarse.  And I'll be sure to file a report from the afternoons event as soon as possible.  It is going to be epic.

Go Kings Go!

With the MLB FanCave final application submission date coming soon I thought it would be fun to take a look at the handful of Dodger fans that have already decided to throw their hat in the ring.

Take a look at them below.  If I missed you, please let me know and I will add it to a future post.

Matt Lowry also appears to have entered into the race.  Unfortunately, I was unable to find a video submission, but he has been very active on twitter and runs his own blog called Dodger Familia Thoughts.

Maggie Harris has also entered the FanCave race and made a video.  Watch it here on YouTube.  She is also on twitter: @awesomenessism1.

Christina-Taylor Green Memorial Foundation Charitable Spring Training Game / Dodgers Community Caravan / An Evening with Don Mattingly


For the 3rd straight year the Dodgers will play a charity game in benefit to the Christina-Taylor Green Memorial Foundation on Thursday, March 21st at Kino Stadium in Tucson, Arizona.  They will play an exhibition game against the Cubs.  Christina-Taylor Green was the young daughter of John Green, National Crosschecker for the Dodgers, who was killed during the tragic mass shooting on January 8, 2011 that took the lives of 5 other people and almost killed US Representative Gabrielle Giffords.

The game will take place at 1:05 PM, and all proceeds will go the the Christina-Taylor Green Memorial Foundation.  Tickets will officially go on sale on Saturday, February 9th.  Go here for more information.

The Arizona Diamondbacks and San Diego Padres will hold a similar event for the Foundation, but details of that game have yet to be announced. 

The Christina-Taylor Green Memorial Foundation was established by the Green family to receive gifts in memory of Christina-Taylor. The mission of the Christina-Taylor Green Memorial Foundation is to honor the life and memory of Christina-Taylor through charitable and educational projects that reflect and embody her interests, values and dreams.

If you are in the area for Spring Training on this day then I highly suggest attending and giving your support.
