Why I Joined The Blue Babes

Hi Dodger fans and blog readers. I'm new to this whole blog thing but in the spirit of publicizing the Blue Babes, I thought I would write a couple of words as well.

I've been a professional dancer for a long time, having been trained in hip hop, tap, jazz, and even some ballet. But the opportunity to join the Blue Babes was a once-in-a-lifetime chance for me simply because of one reason:

I love to party at Dodger Stadium.

I think this fascination started about five years ago, when I had just moved to Los Angeles and was dating this guy who was a big Dodger fan. We probably went to twenty or so games that first year, always getting to games early so we could tailgate a bit in the parking lot (that lot back behind the 76 station was always key as those cops with the segways never made it down there to check people!), and then buy a cheap seat in the left field pavilion just to hang out and enjoy the beer, the night sky, and the crazy fans.

I love being with the rowdy friends. I love starting the wave out there in the pavilion (you may have seen me running up the aisle wearing a short tank top; it never fails to fire up the crowd's cheers!). And I love the fact that we can talk with Manny and whomever is warming up in the bullpen all game long. Sometimes, we're able to find out where the players are hanging out after the game, and we can get VIP access at a club with them. It's great. I love hanging around the Dodgers, because the Dodgers love to party!

Now that I've joined the Blue Babes, I've met some of the coolest friends around and we've made a sport out of going out and chasing boys after dance practice (no, I'm not with that loser guy who introduced me to the Dodgers; he fell asleep one day in the car during a pre-game tailgate, and I never looked back). I mean, the dancing is fun and all, so long as you don't come to practice too sloshed and accidentally step off the top of the dugout roof (sorry Glenda! get well soon!). But it's the partying of the posse that is keeping me pumped up.

Are you into the Dodgers? Do you want to party with us during, and after, the game? I'd love to meet you and see if you've got what it takes to keep up with me and my gang of trouble-makers. It ain't for the weak-hearted!

Hope to see you soon!
