Thank You, Bob Miller!

It has been a tough couple of years for LA sports fans.  Not only did we lose Vin Scully to retirement last year, but we are poised to lose longtime LA Kings broadcaster Bob Miller, as well.  As you know, Bob Miller announced last week that he would be retiring from the job he's held since 1973 due to health concerns.

In honor of Bob and his many years as the voice of the Kings I have created a group of fantasy cards of him.  Unfortunately, I do not have any hockey card templates, so all you see here are Baseball card designs.

Blog Kiosk: 3/7/2017 - Dodgers Links - Some Spring Odds and Ends

Adrian Gonzalez got into his first spring game yesterday and celebrated the occasion by sharing a comic strip featuring himself with Dave Roberts and Justin Turner (see it above).  Batting fourth, Gonzalez grounded out to second base in the first inning and hit a fly-out to left in the fourth.  Per Owen Perkins at MLB.com:
"My swing's fine," Gonzalez said. "I was just trying to get a few at-bats before I head out, and today was a good start. They weren't that great of at-bats, but they were productive, I guess. The fact that everything feels good is all that really matters right now."
