LEONE ARRIVES IN LOS ANGELES



Just a reminder that the Gene Autry Museum of the American West's exhibit "Once Upon a Time in Italy: The Westerns of Sergio Leone" opens next week, July 30. The festivities kick off this Saturday night, July 23, at the Alex Theater in Glendale with a screening of The Good, the Bad and the Ugly and continue throughout the rest of the year with screenings, special events and a collection of props, scripts and other items of interest to those of us with a heightened interest in Leone's spaghetti westerns. You can get up to date on all the details in my article "Gene Autry's Summer of Sergio Leone".

How about those Dodgers Dennis? A 3 game winning streak wouldn't mean much in a real year, but we are within spitting distance of the fading Fathers. If get within 4 I say we make a run for it since the team will be largely healthy by playoff time.

I remain pretty optmistic that they may have gotten their heads together at last, even with the loss to Pedro and the Mets today. Hang that one on Gio Carrara. To hold onto a 1-0 lead and win just after a 10-2 romp, and then win 6-5 and lose today 7-5, hey, at least they're not letting the thin margins get to 'em, and they're scoring the runs. I can't wait for Milton to start tearing it up. Sad sack division or not, it's theirs for the winning, or losing, and this year it may go down to the wire just like last year. This is why I love baseball-- it can be agonizing and exhilarating and despairing and hopeful all within the span of 24 hours, or sometimes even within a game! Go, Dodgers!

I open my big mouth and we lose two straight, however, the Dads have currently lost 7 in a row and fallen to only one game above .500. I would love to see the entirely sub .500 division and with the Padres facing the Cardinals next week it is a real possibility.

I know, I know... I feel the same way. Sometimes I feel like I should just stop watching for a while. But, boy, Cesar did some amazing things today.
