We couldn't resist yesterday's noon Dodger game. It was sunny, it was pretty much a pitcher's duel, and it was sweet to hear the school kids in the left field pavilion cheering and trying to start the wave.

Yes the home team won, but our little section in the field boxes behind home plate won when this Johnny Knoxville look-alike caught a foul ball and gave it to a beautiful grayhaired woman who had earlier been robbed of a ball that rolled under her seat.

Despite less than 20,000 people there (don't believe the official count), there still somehow seemed to be traffic issues getting out of Chavez Ravine despite the 110 being clear and the game ending around 3:20pm.

Our thanks to the nice ticket scalper across the street from the Super 8 on Sunset who gave us a half price discount off the face value of the amazing seats.
