Happy Birthday Jackie Robinson 

January 31, 2017

Happy birthday to my hero, Jackie Robinson! He would’ve been 98 years old today.

Many people know Jackie because he broke Baseball’s Apartheid System but Jackie was a revolutionary and played a huge role in the civil rights movement. Jackie got court martialed for refusing to sit in the back of the bus when he was in the Army in 1944. 

After his baseball career he was very involved advocating for the social justice and human rights of not only African Americans but of those pushed to the margins of society.

If Jackie was alive today, he would be advocating and fighting for the rights of our Muslims Brothers and Sisters. Let us honor him by continuing to stand up against injustice.

The Dodgers and the 2003 Marlins Team

October 22, 2016

What do this Dodgers team and the 2003 Marlins have in common? Both were down 3 games to 2 heading into Game 6 at Wrigley Field. We all know how that Game 6 turned out in what became known as the Steve Bartman game even though the Cubs shortstop had a chance to turned an inning ending double play.

There is a lot at stake heading into this game. The Dodgers will counter with Clayton Kershaw, who shut out the Cubs in Game 2 and if the ghost of Steve Bartman haunts the team, the series will move into a Game 7, where Dodgers pitcher, Rich Hill, shut the Cubs hitters in Game 3.

The pressure on Game 6 is more on the Cubs than on Kershaw. I like the Dodgers chances of winning tonight and taking the series to Game 7 where the Cubs will be forced to close out the series and head to their 1st World Series appearance since 1945.

On the other hand, you have the resilient Dodgers who have made me think of them as the resurrection of the 2003 Marlins team. That team not only were they down 3 games to 2 against the Cubs but won Game 6 and 7 to make it to the World Series. Once they got there they beat the Yankees to become World Champions. 

As a Dodgers fan, I find comfort envisioning this team winning game 6 then game 7 to make it to the World Series and winning it as a tribute to the amazing career of Vin Scully. One does not have to be a Dodgers fan to recognize what Vin means to baseball. I hope the Baseball Gods are working their magic to give the Dodgers a victory tonight and in game 7 so that they can head to the World Series and give Vin Scully a nice retirement gift with a Championship ring.

But, in order to get there, Dodgers need to give Kershaw a nice comfortable lead and win tonight. I believe in this team. Let’s Go Dodgers!

Black Lives Matter Los Angeles 

July 11, 2016

What was supposed to be a gathering of about 200 people at a Black Lives Matter L.A. event at Chuco’s Justice Center turned into a 2,000 plus rally at Inglewood’s Centinela Park. 

We gathered here before we took the streets and March the streets of Inglewood. It was a very peaceful march with over 2,000 people.
