I’ll be honest, I cant remember the last time I saw live baseball, from here in the UK. It would be somewhere in the mid, to end of September range, but exactly when, no idea! On the other hand, when did I last see live baseball, thats easy! Game 1, World Series, will never forget that, especially as the Royals won both that, and the World Series. But yes, thats right, I didnt see it in the UK. I got to see it in my sweet little rented apartment in Hollywood! Hey, because of my location, the game started late in the afternoon, the beauty of being on the West Coast, of course. I was able to watch it all, and still get to bed at a decent hour, given I had to be up early to fly back to the UK, the next morning.
And yes, for the first time since that memorable day, I’m watching live baseball. Fine, its pre season, so fairly meaningless, and its not Kansas, or the Dodgers, but its live baseball, late in the afternoon my time. Boston, and St Louis, if you must know, care of ESPN, the UK version over here, at least.
But yes, I’m 4 hours ahead of East Coast time, instead of 3 hours behind. Yes, I know, its normally 5, but we dont go forward over here till next weekend, unlike you American folks!
I hope I can get to some genuinely live baseball again this year, though at present, I have no idea how thats going to happen. Lottery win, maybe, but seriously? And, where that might be? Yes, a return to Dodgers stadium would be heaven, but practically…hmm? Yes, Dodgers are my National League team, fine? 😉
Otherwise, I’ll have to settle for a few matinee games, on TV, care of ESPN UK, over here. But I hope I can do more, I really do. Anyone want a ‘kept woman’ in Hollywood, lol? No, thought not!
So, to the video. I want to go back to live baseball, ideally in a stadium, and I’d love to go back to Hollywood, and live, ideally for more than 4 glorious weeks, but anyway…So fine, this song seems pretty apt!
