Weekend Autograph Opportunities: Manny Mota and a Bunch of Angels

Here are this weekends autograph opportunities and events throughout the Southland. As always, be sure to check the Blue Heaven Calendar for other events (a link can always be found on the tab at the top of this page, just left of center), and always confirm with the establishment. Everything is subject to change.  Please email me with any tips about upcoming events in Southern California.  As the rest of the week progresses I'll update this post with other events (if there are any) as I become aware of them.  Also, I don't always list every event below, so be sure to check my Calendar.  I always try to favor free signing events over paying events.  Click on any pic to embiggen.

Blog Kiosk: 9/20/2013 - Dodgers Links - A Dodgers Celebration as Miguel Montero Exhibits Class

Do you think AJ Ellis was excited about his eventual game-winning hone run yesterday?  Pic above via Jon SooHoo/LA Dodgers 2013.  See more great pics from yesterdays celebration from him right here.
It's a game, everyone. Entertainment. Yes, it's a business, and, yes, athletes are competitive and Willie Bloomquist probably didn't enjoy seeing the Dodgers celebrate on his home field ... but can't we all just relax a little bit here? So the Dodgers jumped in the pool? Good for them, I say. Live in the moment. 
“In Cuba, we used water,” Puig said.
"I told them last night that I was going to play today, and they kind of looked at me funny," Ramirez said after the game.

  • I won't bother responding to the childish feelings of "disrespected" fans and players.  It's just a big waste of time.  Instead, check out what Miguel Montero (yes, that Montero) tweeted soon after the Dodgers clinched the division title.  
  • Major League a-hole.  He's a reporter with azcentral.sports.

  • Sports Illustrated shared its list of 100 funniest photographs, here.
  • Via The Topps Archives, "Field Guide To Dating Topps Wrappers".  
  • This is a great wrap-up video. looks at the Dodgers' remarkable turnaround to win the NL West for the first time in four seasons, sparked by Yasiel Puig.
