Five Hours in the Chavez Ravine

Our reporting is free for everyone, but it’s not free to make.

Things You Can Do In Five Hours:
-Drive to Las Vegas from Los Angeles
-Run a marathon as fast as P.Diddy
-Watch the uber-long extended version of Return of the King
-Make an entire baby sweater
-Learn a computer programming language

Things You Can't Do In Five Hours:
-Build Rome
-Watch Saturday night's Dodger game from start to finish

That's right, Saturday's game lasted 5-hours and six minutes, the longest game at Chavez Ravine since a five-hour, 16-minute game between the Dodgers and New York Mets nearly two decades ago.
