With The Dodgers Idle, This Is What Passes For Team News

My head is exploding trying to juxtapose these two Dodgers-related points in my mind:

Point 1: Viva Azul, which dodgers.com describes as "a fan club that celebrates Hispanic culture in Los Angeles and the legacy of Dodgers of Latin American descent."

Point 2: Matt Kemp's latest sighting with Rihanna. (Nice Dodger-blue instrument, Kempy!)

Can we please get in the market for a decent starting pitcher, so I don't have to think about this anymore? Hello, Ned? Anybody home?

Who is that fella, ella ella ella?

Steve Sax said...

AC, my head hurts even more now.

Jason said...

There is a lot going on in that photo but I can't get over the fact that Matt is wearing socks with his sandals. Say it ain't so!

Josh S. said...

OK, everyone who sits in the pavilions NEEDS to get that mask and wear it this season.

Nice hat, RiRi.

Dusty Baker said...

I guess I'm going to have to be the first one out of the gate to say that Rihanna has a weird/ugly face that creeps me out.

Karina, can you weigh in here on her "fashion" such as it is?

Remember in the summer when we had that whole discussion about that woman's head looking like a football? Still cracks me up.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Why no picture of Kemp double fisting all the junk in that trunk?

Mr. Customer said...

@DB

She's definitely got the tall head / short face thing going on. All the features are kinda clustered in the middle.

As I am a man of Celtic descent, though, this is not something I find overly unusual or disturbing. That's kinda just how we roll.

The hat, though? *That* shit has got to go.

Still, if she asked me to wear a Lucha Libre mask, I probably would.

My work is now blocking comments in Blogger. That sucks.

RB- Quit your job!

Or, bring a laptop w mobile broadband wireless to work. That's what I do.

DodgerBlue said...

Wow.. So does this means my favorite player is going to start doing bad?

Steve Sax said...

rbnlaw, fight the power! you could also get an iphone.

Dusty Baker said...

That's right, Sax. RB-see the afro pick in your pocket? See the raised fist that also serves as the pick's handle? That holds the key. Be inspired by that fist, and fight the power! Fight The Man!

Alternately, bring your own wireless device.

Say, how does SoSG look on iPhone? It's almost unusable on BBerry but if it works better, I'd get an iPhone. I mean, I'd get one strictly so I could read and post to SoSG remotely.

Dusty, on my iPod Touch it's pretty easy to read and navigate. Scrolling down to read a long comment thread is kind of a pain, though.

Dusty Baker said...

Thx for the iSoSG rec, Josh. Strongly considering getting one, except that pesky part about ATT not friggin' working in key places I like to use my phone (e.g., my house).
