    Believe it or not, I got three calls from friends from back in the day, my age ( even older), telling me how sorry they were about his passing.
    Funny how life's passings remind people of someone else...
    Got the same when Nilsson and Brando died.

    I consider it my duty ( as should we all) to report on upper tier entertainment... so I shall.
    Just watched the last episode of Barry, and it's laugh out loud funny.
    Definitely.
    Fucking great, man.

    Just found out our oldest Dodger fan that i know of has left to be w her savior
    I'm not in country atm but the last few months were pretty brutal and i am relieved to know she is at peace
    she knew something of many of you and i read your posts when we'd watch the games together
    always up for a vigorous and heartfelt 7th inning stretch until the wind was removed completely from her sails
    remember going to games and taking her elbow when Garvey would do something "that's Steve Garvey!"
    if they dfa bickford that will make her happy as she moves on
    going to miss her so much and of course i feel selfish having her as long as i did and my thoughts go out to TB who only had his mom a short time
    as bad as i feel i am relieved to know she is no longer struggling
    Go Dodgers! and hug someone you love

    I've always loved your anecdotes and stories of her, particularly as they related to the Dodgers. Sounds like she was a special lady, and you were fortunate to have her be in your life for that long. Wishing you strength, brother, it's never easy regardless of how many years they lived.

    Thinking about you, Mike.

    Was just speaking to an Angel fan (from OC; probably in his early 60s) the other day and he went off about how he hated Vin, Tommy, and all the "bleed Dodger blue propoganda".
    I thought of all of us (and those close to us, including your mom).
    We've all been so blessed to have indulged in the Azul.
    And she got to see it from the beginning, with O'Malley bringing the boys west.
    So rad.

    So sorry old friend. Time won't heal the hurt, but it helps.

    literally sobbing right now
    so sorry for you loss mike
    as you know i lost my mom at 90, dad at 95
    not a day goes by where i don’t think of them or miss them, but yes knowing they’re both at peace is wholly comforting
    really wonderful that of all the wonderful things you shared with your mom, the dodgers were there the entire ride
    i remember my dad taking me to my first dodger game, and then going to literally hundreds of games with mom and dad thereafter
    there are lots of things that bind us with our parents, i’m just glad the dodgers were one of them for both of us and i'm sure many others
    nancy is right next to me crying her eyes out
    love and prayers to you, your mom, and your family bro from both of us

    So sorry to hear about your loss, Diablo. Your mother seemed like a remarkable woman. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
    May she rest in peace.

    Sorry, Devil.
    I loved her reactions to Dodger games as you wrote them...they were so like my own at times.
    She'll forever be a part of DSP.
    Would have loved to have met her.

    Thanks everyone i really appreciate it
    it wasn't entirely intentional but i had booked Greece in the last month not knowing how things would go and tbh she's been in a bad way for a while
    so far its been pretty cool and i just had the most exhilarating ferry ride across the Aegean sea
    went out on deck w about 8 other hearty souls amongst 1000s and could barely hold on to stay standing up let alone try to take video but i did
    when i realized i was thinking about showing mom that video when i got back it hit me like its been doing
    i spend most of my days thinking about what she needs and when the games are on and realize that's now a void i'm going to need to contend with
    i really enjoyed her sense of humor and it was never a duty to be around and available
    going to become good memories and they already are but i am starting to sense how massive this change is going to be
    hoping my big family doesn't tear apart as things sort out and we still remain close but idk
    a whole different world has been set in motion that i have little control over
    i told my brother not to hold up her services until i get back but get the feeling he will or i may need to cut things short
    hate funerals and tbh it's not really something for me but for the people who saw her once a year or so
    i have no regrets about my relationship with her and she's not here anymore
    appreciate all of you
