We’re loose … the pressure is on them

Man, can you believe that game last night? I mean, we’re still talking about it in here. It was amazing. For me, it was the most exciting game I’ve ever been a part of. When the game ended, I went straight for Mark Loretta. I was on the middle of the top step (of the dugout). I knew something good was going to happen. I had a feeling. And Loretta got that hit and I went for Loretta.

We were all surprised what happened to Matt Holliday, dropping the ball. We still thought we had a chance to win. Around the stadium, they made posters of us, talking about the comeback kids. And things like that really showed we keep fighting till the end and never give up and we got the win.

It carried over to the plane a little bit, but then everybody did their thing, maybe a game of cards or a movie or whatever they do on a plane, because it’s a regular plane ride and we still have one more game to win and it’s not going to be easy. Definitely not easy with the offense and pitching that team has. It’s two good teams going at it. All we got to do is keep the same approach of the first two games and make the pitcher work and keep them from scoring.

We’re loose today, just like when the playoffs began. It’s a little rainy today and you get a little sluggish, but we’ll be up for the game. The pressure’s not on us, it’s on them. Now I’m going out to eat with O-Dog and Loney and chill. Maybe we’ll watch the Angels game. My boy Torii went deep yesterday. I was watching on the plane and was pretty excited about that. He was pretty pumped about that. I shot him a text. Told him to pull this thing off and try to make it a little L.A. thing. That would be exciting.

    Hey Matty!
    Heck of a game last night! I still can’t watch enough re-runs of the bottom of the 9th inning!!! Yeah, I heard Torii’s HR last night! I heard it and thought of you. I know you two are
    buds; I’ve seen the two of you in a video together!

    Have a good dinner with the O-Dawg and Big Game James! Stay loose and I’ll be with you and the team in spirit! 🙂

    Way to goooo Mattman. The only thing missing is the blue cape. Love my Boys in blue. We are so proud of you. I always knew that you would do great in any sport you chose. I promised I would not tell the story when you jumped down 8 flights of stairs landed on your feet, and started running through the house at 3 yrs old (oooops I did it again, oh well next time it will be ten flights at 1yr). I’m most proud of the type of young man you have become. I like to read about the good things you do in the community has well as the good things on the field. You guys have a lot of heart. Stay grounded and continue to give. You will be rewarded. Now let the feathers fly. Kick some bird butte. Good luck saturday. Can’t be there, but I’ll be watching. Go DODGERS Goooooo.
