The day before the game, we picked up our tickets at the stadium. From the parking lots, you have a very nice view of downtown L.A. It’s worth the visit for the view alone. Then we went to the visit the Top of the Park Gift Shop. As we entered the stadium (the shop is in the stadium on the top decks), we’re amazed about the stadium. It’s huge! It has 56,000 seats, and that’s a lot.
It’s game day! The game is against the Arizona Diamondbacks. After paying for the parking, we parked our car and enjoyed again the view of downtown. Now only the security check keeps us away from the game. Our backpack seems too big (they measured it with a square on a table), so we need to go back to the car and pick our camera out. The game begins with the National Anthem, and all the people rise (we also rise). Because did not have dinner, we go for the Dodger Dog. It tastes good, and I take a second one. You must try one. The game is not that interesting, because none of the two teams can score. Luckily, the scoreboard gives us some animation. After the 7th inning, something strange happened. Everyone rises for the 7th inning stretching. I’ve never seen something like that. The only other thing that the visitors do is drink and eat.
In one of the last innings, the Dodgers finally get some points with a homerun and win the game. Everyone is happy, and with a happy feeling and an amazing view of downtown by night, we go back to our hotel.
