#BlameEli! The hashtag rings out from TrueBlueLA upon ELIDELAJANDRO and ADRIC THE ADIPOSE's return from their adventures following THE LOS ANGELES DODGERS.
The team continues to defend their 2020 World Championship. ELI and ADRIC followed the DODGERS to LOS ANGELES, MILWAUKEE, CHICAGO, and ANAHEIM over two weeks where the team only won five out of twenty games.
ELI is chagrined after seeing nothing but defeat. However, the trip lifted ELI's spirits. While ELI was adventuring, his fortune dramatically improved as he was offered and accepted a new role at a new firm in his day job as a solicitor.
To celebrate his change of fate, ELI and ADRIC continue to follow the DODGERS to the far-off locales of ATLANTA, PITTSBURGH, PHOENIX, MIAMI, and DENVER as their pilgrimage continues through the months of June and July. ELI's work on the TrueBlueLA travelogue expands beyond his wildest dreams.
However, before ELI returns to the road, he must venture forth and bear witness to the eternal grudge match between the DODGERS and their mortal rivals, THE SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS, in SAN FRANCISCO....
If you didn’t click the Title Crawl, seriously click the Title Crawl, as I put a lot of effort into that.
Due to a recent job change, I am making way more money in a much less stressful attorney role.
To celebrate, I’m going to Atlanta and Pittsburgh before I start the new gig. In the interim, I’m attending two Dodgers games at "home" in San Francisco.
The Dodgers went 0-8 over two weeks last time. Let’s see if things go better this time.
