End of the Line

For the first time since 1991 I didn't go to Opening Day today at Dodger Stadium.

I'm completely burned out on the Dodgers. Their new owners -- Frank and Judy McCourt -- are transparently greedy in the way they are running the business. Prices are completely out of control. The crowds are unruly and they keep stuffing more and more people into the same space (a record 57,099 today).

Who cares if they beat the San Francisco Giants 11 to 1 and a Dodger (Orlando Hudson) hit for the Cycle -- the first Dodger to do so since 1970. Oh well!

I'll still listen to games on the radio if I'm in the car and occasionally turn on the game on TV, but I have absolutely no interest in spending my money to go to Dodger Stadium.
