Video: Current and former Dodgers talk about Valentine's Day

February 15, 2011 |  2:06 pm

For some of the Dodgers, Valentine's Day represents love and flowers. For others, such as Don Mattingly, the holiday can be painful. (Mattingly sprung big bucks to buy his lady pricey Jimmy Choo shoes.)

At the L.A. River cleanup Monday, current and former Dodgers talked about their best and worst Valentine's Day memories, and Tommy Lasorda divulged his secret to staying married for 60 years. The former Dodgers manager said it involves the frequent use of two words: "Yes Dear."

What are your best and worst Valentine's Day memories? Former Dodgers outfielder Kenny Landreaux once forgot to buy his wife a card and said he was in the dog house for a long time. Anyone have a worse experience?
