Blog Kiosk: 10/17/2013 - Dodgers Links - Adrian "Mickey" Gonzalez, Vin Scully and Don Mattingly on America's Team

Santa Barbara native Skip Schumaker grew up a Dodger fan, and he has a photo to prove.  In the above pic he stands with Orel Hershiser while holding up a boyhood photo signed by the Bulldog.  Pic via Jon SooHoo/LA Dodgers 2013.  See more pics of yesterday's game from Jon here.
“The Mickey Mouse ears, I was just having fun with the comment that was made earlier,” (Adrian) Gonzalez said. “Nothing against them or anything; it was just to have fun.”

Tim Brown at Yahoo has more choice quotes.
“He has those kinda big ears,” Jerry Hairston said.

Uh-huh. No. Don’t.

“He looks like him,” Hairston insisted. “He does. We were so glad when they called him Mickey Mouse. Now we all do.”
They also have the will of the people. All of them. Even the "Best Fans In Baseball," usually partisan for the Cardinals, are pulling for the Dodgers.

"I think if you look at it, now we've kind of become America's team because everyone wants to see a seventh game," Mattingly said. "Probably, even the fans in St. Louis would like to see a seventh game, so I figure that everybody's for us to win on Friday night."

  • This was the best tweet of the day, yesterday.  NASA is back after the shutdown!  Yeah!
