Not only did the Dodgers win their opening game this season, they did it by beating the hated San Francisco Giants.
Oh, and did I mention that they shut them out? Yeah, the final score was 5-0. Bite it, Giants!
In an interesting bit of trivia goodness, I just heard on TV that the Dodgers beat the Giants 50 years ago today, which obviously means that we should just pull out our record books from 1958 and place our bets for the rest of the year accordingly.
Also, as the season drags on, and the Dodgers are stranding 14 runners as they go down in flames to teams that your company’s softball team would beat, remember this: The Dodgers shut out the Giants on opening day. Trust me, we’re going to want to hold on to this one.
