This Is Our Town

A few months ago while PR Dad was pumping gas at a 76 station I noticed a sign that said you could get 2 Dodger tickets with 4 fill-ups. Cool we could do that. So I saved our receipts and sent in the form and our tickets came in the mail and last Tuesday we went to the game.

Thanks to JustOneMiss on Twitter I found out that you can take food into Dodger Stadium. What a money saver! We stopped at a drug store and stocked up on sunflower seeds, peanuts, licorice, gummy fish, cracker jacks etc. We went way overboard but only spent $12.

We got to Chavez Ravine about an hour before the game. I thought we would have to sit in the sun for an hour but there was a mix up with our seats. We walked to the far far far right field top deck where our section was and when we went to look for our seats we realized we had an awful view.

So PR Dad found stadium employee to discuss the matter. Apparently the people who had the 76 promotional tickets were seated behind the new "This is Our Town" billboard. So there was a scramble to get new tickets to us. It took about 30 minutes but we finally got our new tickets in the Lodge section. That's right we were totally upgraded!

The view from our upgraded seats.......


The Phi had a hard time at the beginning of the game, the noise and people were a bit much for her and she was moody and crying. So we took a trip up to the bathrooms and I told her that we had been looking forward to this game and she had a choice to either have a good time or be miserable. Her attitude totally did an 180 and she had a blast the rest of the game.

She mastered the wave...

And even got into the chanting and clapping.....









AND the Dodgers totally won!

  2. Yeah, glad you had such a good time. We're Dodger fans, too. We usually catch them in SD, because it's closer. Next month we're trekking with our daughter and grandson, from OC, to Chavez Ravine. I appreciated the food tip.
