For the love of Vin Scully, people! You are going to a baseball game. You are sitting outside in 80 degree weather with no shade for three hours. At what point does it not occur to you to bring some sunblock along with you? Let's try planning ahead next time.

It was hot. Very hot. And the game sucked in every possible manner. The Dodgers were getting beat, there were no good plays, the pitching sucked, men were being left on base right and left. I give whole-hearted kudos to all of the people who stuck it out into the 9th inning to support the team. You guys kick ass and I'm happy you were there.

This is why I'm very concerned about all of you. You, my friend, are putting your knees at risk. Your knee skin is going to get sun damaged and wrinkly and look all leathery. And the rest of your leg will look normal. Doesn't that concern you?

This guy became orange before our very eyes. It's one thing to have the Venice Beach bodybuilders paint themselves orange with ProTan, but to watch it occur in nature is extremely distressing.

The sun is a powerful thing. Respect it. Acknowledge its strength and omnipotence. Protect yourself from it. And think ahead. Now this person is going to have to go the entire summer season trying to get rid of this cutoff jean shorts tan. It is undue stress, my friend! Get some sunscreen. Plan ahead. Take off your pants next time. Whatever. Just don't forget about the sun.
