Matt Kemp fulfilled a lifelong dream this week prior to the Dodgers' game against the Angels.
And no, it had nothing to do with baseball.
Kemp teamed up with Abby - Abby Cadabby the Muppet, that is - to film a segment for "Sesame Street" that is set to air this Thursday.
"This is a show I grew up watching as a kid," Kemp told ESPN. "To be a part of it now will be something I'll remember for a long, long, long time. I was a big Elmo fan so doing interviews with Elmo was really fun."
Kemp, who recently honored his grandparents with a massive tattoo and is set to become one of the faces on Big League Chew, showed off his softer side in the segment, helping explain the meaning of the word "attach."
Kemp made his spring debut on March 1st, and is one of many Dodgers hoping to stay healthy in the long term after undergoing shoulder surgery this offseason.

A.J. Ellis is massively overlooked in the cardboard game, just as he was overlooked in the post-Russell Martin era until 2012. Seriously, Rod Barajas? Get that out of this piece. I digress.It's become apparent that if you want an A.J. Ellis card with just A.J. Ellis on it, the autographed route is the only way to go. Which is fine by me. And daaaamn, what a gorgeous thing this...

The NL West is one of the most exciting divisions in baseball because of…well, two teams. Sure, the Rockies are finally healthy and Arizona has made some moves, but it really comes down to the Giants and the Dodgers. Then again, the Padres could come out of nowhere and win the whole thing after a giant earthquake swallows LA and San Francisco, Yellowstone erupts, covering Denver...
