"What's a Dodger?"

Dave and I attended our first professional sports game this past week, a Dodgers v. Mets game at Dodger's Stadium in LA. I asked a lot of questions, sang the Baseball Game song, jumped up for 3 home runs plus the Wave, stretched out during the 7th inning stretch, ate a Dodger dog and found in my heart an honest love of the game.
I also found myself wondering (aloud) "Why does California have to be so awesome?" as I looked out past the stadium wall at the surrounding mountains and the gorgeous nighttime LA skyline.
