And now for a different kind of contest. In case you didn't know, BJ Killeen is also an automotive journalist, and today she made her worlds collide:
Okay, I’ll admit it; I got the spring training media passes under false pretenses. Yes, I’m doing double duty as a baseball blogger and an automotive journalist. Hey, a girl’s gotta make a living, right? Well, I was going to keep my automotive research separate from SOSG, but then I thought, what kind of team member would I be if I did that? Don’t get me wrong; I’m still gonna use the information somewhere else, but I felt it was only right to pass along here what I learned speaking to the Dodgers boys. Now, not to take anything away from the master of tough quizzes, but I have a fun game that doesn’t require anyone to search their memory banks for some obscure detail and then turn it into an algebraic formula.
I asked 15 Dodgers (players and coaches) what the first car was they owned. Your job is to match the Dodger to the car. I have no prizes to give away; however, if anyone gets all 15 right, I’ll give you a ride and treat you to dinner in the next cool exotic car I test drive. (Sorry, the Bentley goes back Tuesday, but looming is the new Corvette, Maserati Ghibli, and others.) Good Luck!
