BACK IN THE SADDLE
Since my last post way back in April alot has happend with the Dodgers, and Isotopes. I have really really really missed working on my blog, but work took up much so much of my time that I just didn't have the time to do much of anything else. I am happy to say I'm back in the saddle again. with a couple of changes.
When I first started my blog a few years back I was at a block for a name, so without taking the time to to be creative and think of a good name I just thought I am from New Mexico and I am a fan so I'll call it New Mexico Fan. I have regretted that ever since. Heck when I read that name I think of ceiling fans that are sold in New Mexico. I thought to myself what would be a good name? There are lots of blogs that have cool names like some my favorites Vin Scully is My Homeboy, Dodgers Blue Heaven, Feelin Kinda Blue, Dodger Bobble and Mike Scioscia's Tragic Illness. I put alot of thought into this and came up with I Bleed Blue.
I hope readers of this blog enjoy the photos I take of the Albuquerque Isotopes that I get to see pretty regular and of the Los Angeles Dodgers of which I get to see a couple of times each season.
I would also like to say I am a fan. I am not a professonal writer. I'm just a guy who loves the Dodgers and is lucky enough to live in the city that is home of thier Triple-A team.
Stay tuned for a few more changes.....
I hope I can get all the people who used to read my blog before back to being readers of this bog again.
