MLB NL Playoff Game 5: NY METS 3 – LA DODGERS 2

Farmer John hotdogs (Dodger Dogs) are gross. And we’re still boycotting the Los Angeles Dodgers, Time-Warner and any of their sponsors:

Dodgers Stadium in Chavez Ravine, Los Angeles, CA

They suckered you in and took your money. You bought your hat, jersey, bobbleheads and other merch. You don’t get to watch the game on TV (FU TWC), and how much did you spend on tickets, parking and overpriced concessions to see them play at Chavez Ravine? And now when it counts, they fold like a bad poker hand and let you down again.

One minute after my post, “Get ready Dodgers fans, it’s choke time….”
the NY Mets hit a home run and went ahead 3-2 and ultimately won the game.

Here’s the “Live Facebooking” with my friend Keith until the end of the game:

I’ve been a fan since the original Dodgers Pepsi Fan Club in the 70s. I haven’t been able to watch games on TV for TWO YEARS!

Sorry Keith. Dodgers lose again.

Better order that LAPD “Tactical Alert” right now…

FIRE MATTINGLY! END THE BLACKOUT! GO CUBS!

Maybe the games will be televised in Los Angeles next season. I saw the massive Police presence at Dodgers Stadium for Game 5 and had to wonder who pays the tab for the Police and other Los Angeles City Services during a baseball game?

Today is the 25th Anniversary of the Tiananmen Square Massacre in China!

Today is the 25th Anniversary of the Tiananmen Square Massacre in China!

The Tiananmen Square protests in spring of 1989 by the “89 Democracy Movement” were student demonstrations against the government with popular support from city residents in Beijing, China.

When they want to sell you a tour to China, they’ll show you pictures of the Great Wall, the Yangtze River, Panda Bears, The Three Gorges Dam and of course, the Forbidden City.

They want you to remember the Beijing Olympics in 2008:

The 2008 Beijing Games were the most watched Olympics in history, attracting 4.7 billion viewers worldwide and earning entry into the Guinness World Records.

If you visit Tiananmen Square today, you would never know what happened there twenty five years ago……

Tiananmen Square – Beijing, China

In spring of 1989, student demonstrators occupied Tiananmen Square for seven weeks. The protest was ended when hardline leaders declared martial law on May 20 and ordered the military to enforce martial law and mobilize as many as 300,000 troops in the capital. The crackdown that occurred on June 3 & 4 became known as the Tiananmen Square Massacre, and is commonly known as the June Fourth Incident in China.

“Tank  Man” v. Chinese Military – Tiananmen Square, Beijing, China – June 4th 1989

Chinese troops with assault rifles and tanks inflicted casualties on unarmed civilians trying to block the military’s advance. The image of one unidentified unarmed man standing immobile in the square facing down a column of tanks speaks a thousand words. Moments later the tanks would crush and kill him.

The Chinese government condemned the protest as a “counter-revolutionary riot”, and has prohibited all forms of discussion of the protest or remembrance of the Massacre. Any and all references to the events have been censored from state media, the internet, schools, universities and modern history.

To date, many aspects of the events remain unknown or unconfirmed because of Chinese censorship. Estimates of the death toll range from a few hundred to thousands of people.

p.s. Remember that incredible Bird’s Nest Olympic Stadium from the opening ceremonies in 2008? Here it is, present day, a 40 billion dollar ruin. The workers are picking trash out of the water in this picture from 2013:

A day at the ballpark a few seasons ago with my friend Ms. Jackson.  She had never been to Dodger Stadium before and I had these AMAZING SEATS and Stadium Club passes.  Loge seats on the third base line just above the VIP seats between homeplate and the dugout and a pretty good meal with a great view at the Stadium Club.  We had fun.

More than 125 million fans have visited the ballpark since it opened in 1962.  Spectators have breathtaking views of downtown Los Angeles to the south; green, tree-lined Elysian hills to the north and east; and the San Gabriel Mountains beyond. The 56,000-seat Dodger Stadium has parking for 16,000+ automobiles and more than 3,400 trees cover the 300 acres of beautiful landscaped grounds.
