Miami Marlins vs. Los Angeles Dodgers
Marlins won 8 to 6 

We considered taking the Metro train into Union Station in LA & the Dodger bus to the stadium. Sounded like something fun to do but we couldn’t quite figure out the schedule so we drove into the city instead. Not knowing the infamous LA traffic we arrived early, so just hung out in a nearby park before the game.

Dodger Dog (2)

First stop inside the stadium was the Team Shop so we could add to our collection of pennant, coffee mug, and mascot. It seems that the Dodgers don’t actually have a mascot. However, they are famous for their Dodger Dogs so we bought a stuffed version of him.

Gsuper dodger dogame time wasn’t until 4:30 but we were in the park at 2:30, long time since breakfast. So we each indulged in a super duper Dodger Dog; a huge beef sausage wrapped in Applewood bacon + peppers & onions. Yum!

Although the home team was behind for the majority of the game, they made a valiant effort to even the score. Just not quite enough. By the time we got back to the hotel it was after 10:00 and I just fell into bed. I did so much walking I was too exhausted to even post my blog. Most of the walking was me out looking for the funnel cakes; Jim didn’t eat his share and I stuffed myself a bit too much!
