Imagine my surprise while shopping at Mervyn’s today and bumping into Jamie (Dress Size 0) McCourt. She was doing some last minute shopping for her upcoming trip to the south of France (accompanied by a young Dodger PR guy) where they hope to see some right-handed relievers. She was friendly and admitted that Versace and Bruno Magli have now been replaced by cotton house dresses and Vans. Frank McDivorce has her on a budget and still won’t let her attend the games but she still is an avid fan.
I had to ask the question about the draft pick Zach Lee. “Do the Dodgers really anticipate signing the two-sport high schooler who has signed a letter of intent to attend LSU,” I asked. Jamie (Dress size 0) said, “Absolutely. Zach was a flip of the coin. The other choice was LeBron James.” As I watched Jamie try on a few things, I couldn’t help but think she would have a star role in “Sag in the City.”
So it is on to the Latrine for a weekend 3-game series ending a long 14 game road trip for the travel weary Angels . The Angel players look forward to playing the Dodgers and can’t wait to say hello again to Big Mope Weaver and fan favorite Garret Anderson.
We, of course, anxiously await the series so we can tune into the living legend Win Sculby and listen to him butcher the names of the Angels. It should be easier this year for Win, because Chone Figgins is no longer an Angel, however Win might have some fun with Fransden and Matsui. I only hope Win is wearing one of his used Century 21 sports coats which a dozen or so polyesters gave up their lives for.
We also hope to see Fem-Ram and get to see the 38 year-old DH in the National League who is still a wounded soul since his suspension last year. One final item to report: The Phillies contacted Mike Scioscia and was told to keep the pressure on the Dodgers, or as the Phillies GM put it, “You know the Dodgers are our b1tches, dontcha?”
