Before I sat down to write this entry, I heard that Patrick Swayze had passed away yesterday. He had a courageous fight with pancreatic cancer which began last year. Unfortunately he had to wage his war against cancer in the media eye. He stated that this month there was “reckless reporting” that stated that he was near death. He called this “emotional cruelty when hope is so precious.” Patrick, rest in peace. Please pray for his family,
Last night was USC night. There was a section of Dodger Stadium especially for USC people. I wonder why it was in nosebleed section in upper deck. I saw the entire band up there. It must have been a feat hauling those tubas up there.
The Dodgers played the first of three games against the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Our guys were out in the field intent on catching some batting practice balls.
