2011 Opening Day Officially Moved to March 31

From a Dodgers email:

DODGERS MOVE HOME OPENER TO MARCH 31

January 6, 2011 – The Los Angeles Dodgers announced today that Opening Day has been moved to Thursday, March 31 at 5 p.m. and will be nationally televised on ESPN. The Dodgers will face their rivals, the 2010 World Champion San Francisco Giants, in a four-game series, three of which will be televised nationally or regionally.

In addition, the Friday game vs. the Giants will now start at 7:10 p.m. (originally 1:10) and the Dodgers Sleeved Blanket Giveaway will take place on Sunday, April 3rd (originally scheduled for Monday, April 4th). There is no longer a game scheduled for Monday, April 4th.

Bummer to have it be a night game. But excited that we will beat the Giants on national television!

Congrats to VSIMH for correctly breaking this news early!

And, WTF on the sleeved blanket giveaway? How absolutely 2010 of us. What's next, a macarena world record attempt? Thundersticks?

I used a sleeved blanket over the holidays. It was quite comfortable.
