Last night's game was a blast. It was so good to be back at the ballpark. Bartolo Colon pitched well extending his record against the Rangers in an Angels uniform to 7-0. Vlad looked as good as he did in his 2004 MVP season, hitting a bomb in his first at bat of the season. He also picked up another hit and RBI on a shot to the wall. K Rod also made the Rangers look silly in his first night as the Angels official closer.
The pregame stuff was great as well. They raised our 2004 AL West Champs flag, had Brian Downing's son throw out the first pitch, and had Tamyra Grey sing the National Anthem. It was also fun to see a ton of people wearing shirts saying We Are Not LA. I am planning on picking one up at www.dropla.com
