I didn’t realize it had been so long, but the last Dodger game I went to was back on April 4, 2014. It was the Dodgers home opener against the Giants where Hyun Jin Ryu got lit up for eight runs in the first two innings. I still can’t believe that was the last Dodger game I had been to.
Well on Sunday, my coworker Rogelio (aka RoRo) got invited by Virgin America to sit in the Emirates Lounge at the Ravine. He invited me, so we went.
It was really nice. The Dodgers won 3-1 behind eight solid innings from Clayton Kershaw. But most of what I remembered was having to schmooze throughout most of the game. There was the sales rep from Virgin America. Then the sales rep from Alaska Air. Then the someone else from Alaska Air. Then the someone else from Emirates Airline. Then more people. One after another after another. It made me thankful I had an endless supply of Sapphire Tonics.
It was exhausting. By the time I got home, I took an hour-long nap.
Considering what my more recent weekends have comprised of, at least I got out of the house.
