8:20 am - Happy New Year...  
(For some of us, Opening Day is the new year...)

The Dodgers opened with a good victory over the hated Jints, with Clayton Kershaw both throwing a four-hit shutout and hitting the game winning home run. Even Koufax never did that. (Koufax couldn't hit a lick.)

Speaking of the elder left-hander whose name starts with K, the opening ceremony was pretty cool, especially at the end when Mattingly went to the mound to bring in a lefty reliever for the opening pitch.

Yeah, he bounced the pitch, so what. There's also this version that includes a bunch of Hollywood types (including Samuel Jackson being the man, as usual), but has the whole first pitch ceremony...
