Fun show. I really enjoyed the new songs and was one of the few it seemed that knew them. Met up with BR buddy Keshav.
Thanks to Kelvin for picking up some great seats — Field Level section 45 for around 25 bucks each. The “rich people” section. Sure it was a weekday and against the Padres, but I’ll take it.Snapped a few nice pics of (him with) Ethier and Kemp. Next time I have these seats I’ll go for my own shots with some Dodgers. Met up with Aaron as well. And had my first Dodger Dog of the season. Oh, and the Dodgers played a terrible game, and gave up 4 or 5 runs in just the 1st and ended up losing 9-2.
My first Lakers game at home. My only other Lakers game was in Portland on my Vancouver road trip. Thanks to Philip for inviting me and the great seats. Row 1, not sure I’ll ever get better that than. I’m not big on basketball, but when I do catch it I can appreciate the excitement and talent. It was cool watching Kobe play, and just dominate in the 4th quarter when the game was tied and he decided to take over. One of Kobe’s last games before his ankle injury that will likely keep him out until sometime next season. Didn’t really see any celebrities, and no Jack Nicholson this game. Well there were a few, but I didn’t recognize them. I enjoyed the game even more than expected and hope to do this again.
My fist game of the season, and game 2 at that. Jose was in town and a bunch of us went to the Dodger game. I had picked up some decent seats on StubHub a month or so prior. Unfortunately the Dodgers lost, but oh well. I still had fun with the gang at the ballgame.
A redditor on /r/losangeleskings offered one of his STH seats. I took him up on it. Thanks Mr. W.Wuzzle! I like watching the Kings play the Canucks, they feel like one of their top rivals. Unfortunately, this was a relatively boring game and Vancouver won. Oh well, still had a nice time catching the game.
FINAL VAN (1) – LAK (0)
Always a good match-up. Ian put together a group and his ticket rep arranged for us get out on the ice before the game.
FINAL SJS (2) – LAK (5)
Thanks to Travel Alberta for the great seats! They contacted me out-of-the-blue and offered tickets to the game. I may not be a fan of the Flames, but I do look forward to visiting Alberta someday.
FINAL CGY (2) – LAK (6)
My first time seeing this band. They rock live, it was much more energetic than I expected. Watching Monoliths played live was a highlight and I look forward to it again.
The game was a stinker and it turned out to the start of the Blackhawks amazing point streak of 24 games. But what I’ll really remember from this one is the raising of the Stanley Cup champs banner.
