Go Dodgers!

October 1st, 2006 · 4 Comments

Congratulations to the National League West Champion Los Angeles Dodgers!!


With their win yesterday, they clinched a playoff berth. With their win today (their sixth-straight and 88th for the season), they secured their spot as National League West Champions. They share the title with the San Diego Padres, who have an identical record of 88 wins and 74 losses.

With the season series between the Dodgers and the Padres being decidedly lopsided in favor of the Padres, they will get home-field advantage in the first round of the playoffs and will play the St. Louis Cardinals. The Dodgers, playing the role of “Wildcard” for scheduling purposes, will travel to New York to open the first round against the Mets on Tuesday. This is a good thing (as far as I’m concerned) because the team won’t be back to play at home until Saturday. That means I’ll be back from our camping trip to go to a playoff game or two!

Off on our camping trip!! We’re going beach-camping. We’re not really roughing it, as my lovely wife has never camped before in her life. Instead, we’re borrowing my sister’s camper. Five days of beach!

Pics and stuff when I return.

    My beloved LA Kings are the LA Kings…they break my heart every season, but I always come back (season opener tonight in Anaheim…woo hoo)!

    I still have the memories of ’93 to get me through the rough seasons, but it’d be nice to see them in the playoffs again.

    Good luck to the Dodgers tomorrow…they need that game!
