So you've finished Off-Day Puzzle #7, the Dodgers (obviously) aren't playing tonight, and you're wondering what to do before screaming over to Chavez Ravine for three nights of free parking? Well, there's a lot of Dodgers-related stuff to watch on television tonight:
- Sometime this evening (they're telling me 6pm ET, but I don't know if that translates to PT with just a three-hour time shift, as it's not on this schedule), the MLB Network will air a special feature narrated by Bob Costas about Don Drysdale’s sixth straight shutout game, pitched in 1968. From the press release: "The game, held on June 4, 1968 between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Pittsburgh Pirates, coincided with Robert F. Kennedy’s victory in the 1968 California primary. In the first words of his acceptance speech, Kennedy congratulated Drysdale; moments after the speech, Kennedy was assassinated. Four days later, on June 8, Drysdale broke a 55-year old record for consecutive scoreless innings and wore a black arm band to honor Kennedy’s memory."
- At 8pm, How I Met Your Mother airs a re-run of "Woooo!", in which Robin is feeling a little lost because of her unemployment, and becomes a "Woooo!" party girl. Lily tries to fit in with Robin's new friends, and hijinks ensue. This has nothing to do with the Dodgers, but we at SoSG like this show.
- At 11:35 pm, Joe Torre will be a featured guest on Conan O'Brien's Tonight Show. Joe will try to teach Conan how to lift his sagging ratings with only 10 shows in the books. (Don't worry, it's a long season, Conan. Take each show one day at a time.)
Plenty of stuff to do, kiddies!
