It was stage time again at the last pre-season game of our home team, the Los Angeles Dodgers, who played the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim on Saturday, April 3.
Alvin and the Chipmunks also arrived at Dodger Stadium to celebrate their recent "Squeakquel" DVD release, and CC was ready for all the fun that came with it. Again.
Her first stop before taking our seats was the karaoke station, where she performed her signature CC dance, which involves a position that resembles the "Downward Dog." That kid is flexible.
She also got excited by the karaoke machine itself, which turned her preschooler voice into Chipmunk-speak. Now that was hilarious -- almost as hilarious as when she started singing Beyonce's "Single Ladies," the 'munked-out version of which is on "The Squeakquel" soundtrack.
Once we got up to our seats, courtesy of Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment -- and got to hang with fellow bloggers Mar Vista Mom /The Open Daily's Sarah, House of Prince's Kim, SpanglishBaby's Ana and LosAngelista's Liz -- it was all Dodgers all the time.
We bought our requisite Dodger Dog, lemonade and sat in the hot sun that comes with baseball in Southern California.
It was actually CC's second Dodgers game, and she was more than ready to support her team. She noticed some young boys nearby who were showing their own kid spirit, so she decided to join in.
"Go Dodgers!" she yelled, clapping her hands. "Go Dodgers!"
(Upon telling this to my New York Yankees-loving dad, he said, "That's horrible.")
We didn't get to watch the whole game -- the sun and nap time proved to be too much for our endurance -- so I'm still not sure which team won. But my friend Jon over at Dodger Thoughts on ESPN.com always has the inside scoop.
In the meantime, my littlest baseball fan might demand a regular season game in the not-too-distant future, complete with Chipmunk voice or otherwise.
