Before coming to LA, I made a bucket list of things I want to do in LA that I never had a chance to do anywhere else. Recently, I crossed off one of them: watching a game at the Dodgers Stadium.
I never was a sports-watcher before coming to college. I did play/do multiple sports throughout my life, such as swimming, basketball, volleyball, ballet, and even gymnastics! But I never understood the point of watching games. The whole point of sports is to get some physical exercise off of it. If you are just sitting in front of the TV with a plate of wings and beer and just watching people play the game, you are not gaining anything except a few pounds around your waist. Well, at least that’s how I had felt about sports PRIOR to going to this game.
Going to the Dodgers Stadium changed my perspective on sports. Now I see why there are millions of people watching sports every night and I see why people are willing to pay over a hundred dollars to go watch a game.
Thanks to my boyfriend, a devout Dodgers fan, I got a chance to go to one of Dodgers games. I have to say, it was a whole lot different than what I had expected. First of all, I had no idea that stadiums were that big. I mean,,I knew they had to be big, but not THAT big. That Dodgers Stadium could fit over 55,000 people! Could you imagine how packed the parking lots were? There were so many cars there that we almost couldn’t find our way to the car after the game. Secondly, how do they keep the grass so green? It looked like every leaf of grass was grown and cut to perfection. And who would have thought there were that many varieties of hot dogs and burgers? It would take me years if I wanted to try them all.
It was definitely a good game to watch at the stadium, with Dodgers hitting multiple home-run’s and winning the game. And now that I got myself a Dodgers cap, I am now officially a Dodgers fan.
Let’s go LA Dodgers!
