We All Scream for Ice Cream
I have a note to anyone who goes to Dodger Stadium. If you have a seat in the front of a section, MAKE SURE YOU DON’T LET YOUR TRASH FALL OVER THE LEDGE.
In Wednesday’s rubber game against the Rockies, I was sitting in the field level in right field right behind the foul pole. I became distinctly aware of the loge section right above me in the seventh inning when someone’s discarded soft-serve cup fell and landed on my head. ON MY HEAD.
As an admitted potty mouth, I don’t like cussing at the stadium because of the presence of kids. I expect kids to act behaved, and if I don’t provide an example how can I expect them to be respectful? All that went out the door when I went from calm to ghetto in 1.4 seconds. If it weren’t for the security person-man and my three friends, I would’ve gone up to the Loge section and thrown down.
Moral of the story: I will forever cherish my top deck seats.
Shortstop Rafael Furcal (DUI) had a setback in his rehab appearance for the Class A Inland Empire 66ers Tuesday night when he took himself out of the game with tightness in his sprained left ankle. Apparently DUI will be in the lineup for this Padre's series. DUI as a leadoff hitter last season averaged .300, and The Useless One (with an average of .226 on-base percentage so far this season) is not getting on base. Hopefully this will spark this so-far anemic offense.
Breaking News: Jack Wilson, 55, has finally left the parking lot after sitting through traffic since Monday's home opener.
The Dodgers have had troubles with the San Diego Padres the last couple of seasons. Right now both teams are a bit anemic on offense and have great pitching. However the Pads hold the slight edge in pitching for now until the old timers David Wells and Greg Maddux start wearing down towards the end of the season.
So far this season my predictions have come true. Unfortunately I have to say that the Pads are going to win two of three this weekend especially with Wells and Jake Peavy on the mound Friday and Saturday respectively.
