By Danny Farris, AngelsWin.com Contributor -
Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Danny Farris and I'm a huge Angels fan. My first Angels game was when I was 5 and I witnessed JT Snow hit a bomb. I learned that not only was he a local kid, he went to the same high school that I was going to go to. Ever since that day I was absolutely hooked. And because of THAT moment (and to make an extremely long story short) I am currently sitting in the MLB Fan Cave in Manhattan representing our Halos.
The great guys at AngelsWin.com contacted me and asked if I could write a weekly blog giving you guys the highlights of the Cave and I jumped at the opportunity. I'm not only here for myself - I'm here for all of you Angels fans as well. I'd like for us to share this experience and this is a great way to do it. For those who do not know what the Fan Cave is, let me give you a quick explanation. The Cave is an event space in NYC built so that myself and the other Cave Dwellers can watch every game throughout the season. Us Dwellers went through an application process and MLB ultimately selected nine of us to watch these games and bridge the gap between baseball and pop culture. So far this season we have met members of the Padres bullpen, Marlins catcher Rob Brantly, and this weekend with the Orioles in town, Chris Davis and Darren O'Day will come in to film a skit with us. We've only been here for about two weeks and it's already been the experience of a lifetime. I never want to leave, but there are eliminations throughout the year, leading to an Ultimate Cave Dweller being crowned at the end of the year.
So throughout the season, I'm going to be sharing stories and updates from the Cave as well as voicing my opinion about the Angels. Right now I don't really want to talk about them. I know it's early, but the pain is still present. I will say that I really like Garrett Richards and I think he will do well in the starting role.
You can see all of our videos and blogs on MLBFanCave.com.
I'd highly recommend following @MLBFanCave on Twitter. Not only do they post happenings around the Cave, but they post awesome things that baseball fans would love. You can follow me @ohshootitsdan as well. If you guys have any questions, let me know! I'd be happy to answer questions from everybody. I look forward to interacting with everybody this year!
