  • Celebs Show the Love for Dodgers and Yankees

    A and B-list celebrities were out in force throughout the weekend at Dodger Stadium, with Sunday evening’s prime-time game on ESPN being the primary draw.  For those fans that are more concerned with people watching than the baseball game itself (hey, this is LA), Sunday’s game was the place to be.  Noted Dodger and Yankee fans like Alyssa Milano and Jack Nicholson were representing their team’s logos, and then there were a bunch of other celebs that I had no idea were such huge baseball fans, including Tom Cruise, Demi Moore, Jane Seymour, Ashton Kutcher, Zac Efron, Kevin Connolly, Adrian Grenier, Kevin Dillon, Jerry Ferrara and more.

    Here are a few shotsfrom throughout the weekend for your enjoyment:

    62 Hours to Go…

    With Opening Day just 62 hours away (and counting) I’ve been enjoying watching the anticipation across the Web build as fans of all teams get psyched for the first pitch of the season.  The more I think about it, the more I think Opening Day should be a holiday.  We are talking about the national pastime, right?  Maybe I’ll work on that for next season.

    In the meantime, I wanted to call attention to Dodgers season ticket holder, and fellow blogger, Alyssa Milano’s site, Touch ‘Em All, and her ode to Opening Day, which I particularly liked:

    Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems.
     -Rainer Maria Rilke

    Yes. Oh, yes. I love this time of year. The days are longer, the pollen is in the air and there are little buds of future flowers everywhere you look. For the past few years and every year at this time, we have a couple of ducks (I think they may be married but I don’t know for certain) that fly into my backyard daily and take a bath in my pool at around 4 p.m.

    Spring has sprung! And with the promise of all these amazing gifts from nature, comes the reminder that Opening Day soon will be here.

    Even the drama of the McCourts’ divorce can’t bring down my baseball spirits. Because even though I obviously want my team to do well, this is the one time of the year that it’s not about my team winning or losing. It’s about walking into my home stadium, after months of a cold winter, and relishing in the hope of a new season.

    The buds will bloom. The gates will open.
    The frogs will chirp. The bats will crack.
    The birds will fly. The balls will soar.

    And for this time, right now, before any loss or statistic is recorded, my team… is the best in the league.

    And don’t think Alyssa doesn’t know her Dodgers.  She recently spoke to ESPN about the upcoming season and makes it to about 40 games a season:

    “There is no better place to be than in the ballpark in your town,” she said. “It’s a sensory experience.”

    “I haven’t been thrilled about the starting rotation for years. You have to have good pitching to win a championship,” Milano said. “I haven’t told management my thoughts. But I blog about it and pray someone in the front office will be reading!”

    And, of course, Alyssa’s passion for the Dodgers bleeds over into her *Touch* clothing line, designed for the ladies who love baseball in your life.  An Easter gift, perhaps?  At the very least, I’m sure you all will enjoy the pictures (check out the link to see more)!  BTW, I’m not sure why she models so much Phillies gear on the site, but I’m willing to overlook this.

    The Black Eyed Peas Show the Dodgers the Love

    The Black Eyed Peas are showing the Dodgers the love with a new billboard on the Sunset Strip.  The majority of the group grew up in LA and are fans of the club.  Personally, I’d love to hear them record a song for the Dodgers showing their love for the team.  We need an anthem for the playoffs, right?!?  I know, I know, that’s what “Don’t Stop Believin’” is for.

    Ok, back to the billboard.  From the official Dodgers press release:

    “The Los Angeles-based group is featured on a “This is My Town” billboard, part of the team’s advertising campaign that celebrates Dodger fan loyalty and conveys the message that Dodger fans can be anywhere in the World of
    Dodgertown.”

    Let’s go Dodgers PR team…get the Black Eyed Peas to record a song about this team!

    Paul Walker, John C. Reilly, Arsenio Hall and Other Celebs Love the Dodgers Too!

    I know many of us Angeleno’s love the Dodgers, but it looks like the celebs in town do too (well, now that the Lakers season is over).  And hey, they’re people too, right? 

    Celebrities at last night’s Dodgers-Rockies game at Dodger Stadium included Paul Walker, John C. Reilly, Arsenio Hall (all pictured below), James Van Der Beek and even Linkin Park drummer Rob Bourdon.  Unfortunately the Dodgers did not shine as brightly as the stars in attendance…they lost 3-0 on a two-hit shutout to even the series 1-1.  But hey, there’s always tonight!
