Just in case the packed house at The Big A or the multiple ESPN cameras didn’t already remind the players that many people were watching their performances, the Dodgers saw Kobe Bryant sitting right behind their dugout to keep them on their game. The Bean was taking in the final game of the Freeway Series in Anaheim Sunday along with his father, Joe “Jelly Bean” Bryant. As much as I don’t like Kobe, I think it was really cool to see him spending Father’s Day the way many of us like to — sitting front row at the ballpark. I also like that he’s just kicking it in a t-shirt, not trying to prove he’s bigger or badder than anyone else. Quick trivia question: what’s the difference between Kobe and Joe Torre’s four rings?
Kobe actually did some work for his. And nice to see he and his father getting along especially after those reports from years ago that they weren’t talking following Kobe’s marriage. Lastly, in case you were wondering, it appears as if he was rooting for the Dodgers.
