Good morning from LAX. My hope was to get to my hotel last night in time to watch the season premier of Entourage, but that was a pipe dream. I’ll have to catch it when I get home in about eight hours. My new hope is to sleep through the entire flight.
This was a good trip for the Yankees. Two wins in Arizona. Two more in Los Angeles. Now they get a day off before facing the Mariners.
For me, I got to see some family friends from back home in Missouri, and I got to have lunch a couple of times with an old friend from college. Plus I got to see Dodger Stadium. The place is terrific, immediately becoming one of my favorite stadiums. One side has a terrific view of the Hollywood hills, the other side looks out over downtown L.A. It’s obviously an older stadium, but it seems to be in great condition. It’s highly recommended if you’re on this side of the country.
Time to catch this flight and make my way home. I’m counting on the weather to be nice when I get there.
