e027d74b-9347-4ca5-b03e-ffcb40744c8aI just realized that my boycott only applies to Dodger Stadium. I could, if I wanted to, drive down to San Diego and watch a game at Petco Park.

I love Petco. It’s a party stadium, right in the middle of town, lots of great restaurants all around. And usually more Dodger Blue than Padre … whatever color they are wearing now.

The poor Padres are 1-5, so the Dodgers might have as much success over their sorry selves as they did with the Pirates. But Josh Beckett is pitching for the Dodgers, so I won’t hold my breath. He hasn’t really won me over at all. His ERA so far is 4.54, but on the bright side, his opponent, Clayton Richard, has an ERA nearing 15, not that that means anything after only one pitching appearance.

But I’ll keep an open mind, and watch the game at 3:30. (Weird time for a West Coast game, don’t you think?)
