TWC SportsNet LA Dodger Viewing Party

In the weeks before the Dodgers and Diamondbacks opened the 2014 season in Australia, I received an e-mail from Amy over at Time Warner Cable SportsNet LA.  The e-mail was an invitation to a viewing party at the Time Warner Cable studios.  At 1:00 am and 7:00 pm on Saturday March 22nd invited guests, SportsNet LA executives, and SportsNet LA on-air talent would be watching the Dodgers take on the Diamondbacks.

Not wanting to miss out on the opportunity, I RSVP'd to the event and anxiously waited for Saturday to arrive.  When I arrived that Saturday morning, the first thing I noticed was the event was fully catered.  Burgers, Dodger Dogs, salads, chicken, cookies, water, soft drinks and beers.  I'm sure i'm forgetting some items but SportsNet LA really went all out.  There were other bloggers, members of the press, and executives waiting for the game to start.  WIFI was provided so everyone could be active on the blogs and social media.

Since Orel Hershiser and John Hartung hosted the pre-game show, once the game started they came out to the viewing area and mingled with everyone.  The staff at SportsNet LA also provided tours of their studios.  We were taken to see the SportsNet LA Dodgers set and the TWC SportsNet Lakers set.  I must say these studios look much larger on TV!  The Dodgers beat the DBacks 3-1 in game one and after being at the studios from 1:00 am to 5:00 am, I drove home and passed out!

I decided to return for the 7:00 pm game and was glad I did.  Since there would be a post-game show after this game, we got to see the studio with all the lights and graphics turned on.  Also, Nomar Garciaparra was part of the pre and post-game shows so he came out to great everyone in attendance for the second game.  I was able to get his autograph on a Dodger Stadium baseball card.  Of course, the best news was that the Dodgers beat the DBacks for the second game in a row.

It was great way to view the first two games of the season and TWC SportsNet LA were excellent hosts.  Take a look at my pictures below.  You will be able to notice right away how different the studio looks when it is lit up.
