I was going to craft an interesting story, but it's too hot and I have stuff to do today.

But I got a chance to sit in the renovated bench seats in the first row of Dodger Stadium along the third base line. That's aisle 31B, row 1, seat 5 to be precise.

Before the game, Rafael Furcal wonders which rules he needs to obey:

At least somebody likes Kenny, it could be Kenny:

The Dodgers give their top pitching prospect a chance to throw out the first pitch:


Albert Pujols thinks to himself "I'm only at third? What did I do wrong this time? Did Jose Oquendo give me my Frequent On Base Points? I'm close to Premier status. If I get there, then Oquendo has to give me two bags of peanuts once I get to third."


Sorry this one is a little blurry, but it's interesting that in Antioch, California, Aaron Miles Day comes the day after Veterans Day. It's probably a cheap attempt by the people there to get an extra day off. I'm asking for Aaron Miles Day off this year at my job.


From this angle, what do I have more of? Chins, ears, red squares on my shirt, or white squares?

Gee, Bob, re: that last picture; replace the hat with the hairpiece and add the moustache, and I think I found your long-lost twin.

Any reaction to your shirt from folks at the stadium?

The security guard at the entrance recognized the shirt and complimented me. My sister-in-law liked it because I easy to spot in a crowd.

Geez, Bob, you're 6'5"! I wouldn't think you'd need to wear a tablecloth to be seen in a crowd.

I believe the rules being referred to above are the "Miles of Antioch" rules. They cover boxing and debate.
