    He always stands up and sings with the crowd and then applauds them. They never show him on camera, at his request, but for anyone watching him in the box it's a nice treat.
    Awesome! Yeah, that's exactly what I meant.

    I have the MLB Extra Innings package and I have been watching a lot of Dodger games. IMHO there is no better announcer in the game today than Vince Scully. More impressive is he does the games alone. He is such a pleasure listen to for 9 innings.

    There is or was no better announcer, any sport, any period.

    For decades LA had the trifecta of Scully, Chick Hearn (basketball) and Bob Miller (hockey). As a fan of all 3 sports and a resident of the LA Area for many years, I can attest that to a sports fan it was truly something to have the top 3 announcers of all time in one market.

    Prime Ticket (nee Fox Sports West) had a 1-hour special not too long ago that was taped in 2000 with all 3 in a roundtable format. What a treat.

    Tommy's mike appear to be in imminent danger. Scully alone doing Dodgers game is far superior to Scully doing a national game on NBC, interestingly enough.

    I remember the TV news showing people leaving after Hearn's funeral, and sure enough, Scully exits the building. I broke out in tears.

    Bob Miller is awesome. If it wasn't for him (and Anze Kopitar) I wouldn't watch many Kings games.

    I do love the palm trees. It is my hope that the new Marlins park does something similar.

    And a nice view of downtown from behind the ballpark.

    Was lucky to be able to see a game at DS back in the mid 90's. Love the fact that they restored the seat colors, and I wish my Mets had seen fit to save Shea and retro fit her as well.

    But DS was, and is gorgeous. It is nearly perfect.

    The Mets are out, so its time to root for our Old Uncles, the Dodgers.

    Does anybody know of the Curb Your Enthusiasm episode where Larry David was at the Dodger game with a prostitute? What section of Dodger Stadium were they sitting in?

    That was one of the funniest episodes. He wanted her to ride with him so he could drive in the carpool lane. From what I remember they were sitting on the third base club level. There were just a few rows in this level. Then Larry David went down to the Field Level to confront his friend (played by Super Dave Osborne- sorry couldn't remember his real name) because he thought it was ridiculous that his friend would not offer the ticket to him and instead keep his second seat empty in honor of his late father. To top it off the guys who were the big wigs at the new country club that Larry was applying for membership saw him sitting with the prostitute from nearby seats. I don't think he got in.

    I think that's also the same episode where Larry wanted to buy an ounce of shwag for his father who was having trouble seeing. The guy who sold him the shwag was that big guy from LOST.

    It's also the episode where Larry was being interviewed by the prosecutor for jury duty, and it resulted in one of the funniest lines ever in the history of the show:

    Prosecutor: "Have you ever been the victim of a serious crime?"
    Larry: "My cousin once stole an almond joy from me. It was upsetting at the time, but...ummm..."

    Larry's friend, who wouldn't give up his late father's seat, is named Marty Funkhouser. He is portrayed by actor Bob Einstein.

    GREAT episode.

    I hope, I want and I need to watch the Los Angeles Dodgers the Philadelphia Phillies on TV for to win all 3 games at Dodger Stadium and I can't afford Dodgers' playoff tickets. And I hope,I want and I need for the Los Angeles Dodgers to win game at Citizen Bank Park in Philadelphia,PA.
