Lucille Kring is a councilwoman for the City of Anaheim who is running for mayor of Anaheim. After a recent officer involved shooting in her city, she sent out a tweet that said, "Oh goody, the guys dead so we don't need a trial. Always a good outcome." Probably not the smartest thing to share with the public.


The Dodgers will play the San Diego Padres this afternoon at 5:00 PM to officially open the 2014 Major League baseball season.  While the Dodgers have the largest payroll of any major league team, ESPN writers are picking the St. Louis Cardinals or Washington Nationals to win the World Series.  We will have to see.

The Dodgers' hopes will rest on how healthy the team can stay.  Dodger starting picture Clayton Kershaw has just been put on the disabled list to start the season. Let's hope this isn't a omen of things to come. I have several Dodger players on my fantasy team this year, including Yesiel Puig, Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford, Zack Greinke, and Hyun-Jin Ryu.

The Dodger game tonight is scheduled to be broadcast on ESPN.  Let's hope it's not blacked out by the greedy bastard Dodger owners because of their new greedy bastard TV network.   Just saying!!

No orgy there!
I sure do miss being able to go to San Onofre State Beach.  

We've had quite a swarm of earthquakes in the last 24 hours.  Corey felt one just before we left for dinner about 5:00 PM on Friday. That one was 3.1.  The news said there was a 3.6 at about 8:00 PM and then the biggest one was at just after 9:00 PM.  I was sitting on the couch watching the Dodgers/Angels baseball game on TV when it hit.  It started with a gentle rolling, then a big jolt, then more rolling.  The big one was a 5.1 magnitude.  About the time it finished here in Ontario, I could see the outfield camera at Dodger Stadium shaking the TV picture.  The announcers commented that they were experiencing an earthquake.

ATTORNEY: Doctor, before you performed the autopsy, did you check for a pulse?
 ATTORNEY: Did you check for blood pressure?
 ATTORNEY: Did you check for breathing?
 ATTORNEY: So, then it is possible that the patient was alive when you began the autopsy?
 ATTORNEY: How can you be so sure, Doctor?
 WITNESS: Because his brain was sitting on my desk in a jar.
 ATTORNEY: I see, but could the patient have still been alive, nevertheless?
 WITNESS: Yes, it is possible that he could have been alive and practicing law.

I confess that I've been ignoring my bike recently. It's no secret that I'm a wuss when it comes to cold weather.  Give me a hot sunny day anytime.  I know for a fact that there will be many hot summer days in the months ahead.

Yesterday was the first day of Spring or the Spring equinox.  Yesterday the day was split equally between 12 hours of sunlight and 12 hours of darkness.  So today our weather in SoCal is cool and overcast.  Go figure.

Mr. President has game!!
Happy birthday to Bruce Willis who turns 59 years old today.

We had a great time in Phoenix last weekend. Saturday night we went to a Phoenix Coyotes hockey game. The Coyotes won the game.

Sunday afternoon we went to the Dodger game.  We sat on this bench for quite awhile people watching.

This was the view from our seats.  About an hour and a half into the game our seats were in the shade which made it real nice.

While we were sitting on the benches people watching, Yasiel Puig rode by on a bicycle headed for the locker room which is the building behind him.  Right after I snapped this shot he blew the fans a kiss.  He's just a big kid at heart.

The wind from the previous day had stopped on Sunday and it was a beautiful day for a ball game. The game ended in a 3-3 tie.  Puig made the play of the game, throwing a base runner out at the plate, only to have it overturned by the new video replay rule going into effect in the majors this year.  It was a great throw none the less- on a line-no bounce- to the plate.
