In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month Adrian Gonzalez sat behind the computer this afternoon to talk directly with fans on twitter. As you can imagine, he received hundreds of questions, but only had enough time to answer a few. Check some of my favorite exchanges below.
BTW, the Dodgers have put together a "Tweet Seat" session with either a player or someone from behind the scenes numerous times over the past three years. Go here to check out my past post about them. Previous guest include Farhan Zaidi, Vin Scully and Corey Seager.
Adrian Gonzalez started promptly by letting us know what his backup plan was had a career in Baseball not work out.
Have you ever wondered what's going through his head before a game. His tweet below provides a small glimpse.My plan during high school was to attend college to be a mechanical engineer. https://t.co/J2Y8PrjVro— Los Angeles Dodgers (@Dodgers) September 22, 2015
A fan then ask if he turns up "El Mariachi Loco" after a win. Unfortunately, he doesn't provide the answer you would hope. Frankly, I find this rather unfair of his teammates. They should mix it up a bit when it comes to post-game tunes.Before the games I am preparing a game plan for the pitcher we are going to face that night. https://t.co/i02m0SeWrE— Los Angeles Dodgers (@Dodgers) September 22, 2015
Now we're getting to the good stuff... Ya know, the kind of stuff we really want to know.We play "delirious" by @steveaoki after our wins. I am outnumbered by being the only Mexican on the team. https://t.co/HV3CsgOYww— Los Angeles Dodgers (@Dodgers) September 22, 2015
Like, how's your fantasy football team doing.... And, has Zack taken any of your players yet?
How about your favorite Mexican dish?My team stinks! @yungjoc650 is trying to trade our entire team already. & yes we have already made a trade w/ Zack. https://t.co/VumgktyaIs— Los Angeles Dodgers (@Dodgers) September 22, 2015
No sour cream, though.Tacos de Carne Asada y Ceviche estilo Sinaloa https://t.co/4I7oSCNJc5— Los Angeles Dodgers (@Dodgers) September 22, 2015
Let me repeat that.
NO SOUR CREAM!
Then he gets a bit snarky when one fan asked, "why do tripas smell weird?"NO, I can't stand sour cream! https://t.co/8QhbXfRyKV— Los Angeles Dodgers (@Dodgers) September 22, 2015
Lastly, this last answer from Adrian was on the top of my mind. A fan asked him, "what happened to the bubble machine?"Maybe its the way you cook them! https://t.co/TT7OiwNoZD— Los Angeles Dodgers (@Dodgers) September 22, 2015
I guess I shouldn't be surprised. The Bubble machine was last years magic good luck charm. This season they've got the "Rally Banana."We ran out of bubbles! https://t.co/w9TlRuvbWf— Los Angeles Dodgers (@Dodgers) September 22, 2015
