People are mopey here in the press box at Dodger Stadium today. The pall of failures from the last five games hangs around like an unwanted in-law.

The Dodgers are in the midst of their worst losing streak of the season which encourages about as much confidence as the Hindenburg.

However the players apparently don’t feel that same fog of disappointment.

In the clubhouse before the game, the LSU-Georgia game is playing. LSU driving with less than a minute left in the game trailing 13-12. Juan Pierre, Orlando Hudson and Matt Kemp are watching the game intently.

Running back Charles Scott rushes for 33 yards for the go-ahead touchdown for the Tigers. Pierre jumps out of his chair and runs around the clubhouse.

“Now that’s SEC football,” Pierre exclaims.

Hudson then talks about Pac-10 football being nothing more than flag football.

Pierre grabs the LSU helmet sitting on top of the players’ mailboxes and puts in on.

Once LSU made the final interception to seal the game, the three players ran out of the clubhouse to start batting practice.
