Dodger WoesI honestly don’t know how sports writers do it. Following a team like the Dodgers, who are so painfully failing nearly every time they come up to bat (or bring Ronald Belisario on in relief), is just plain depressing. How many times can you say, “The offense isn’t producing”? How many ways can you phrase the term “leaving men on base”? It’s a chore! Right now, as I am writing this, the Dodgers are in the middle of the second game of a double-header in Baltimore. They lost the first one, 7-5, and in this one so far, they are tied at 1 in the fifth.

So I’ve decided I don’t have to write about every single game. If one is just like the day before, I’ll maybe write about something else, like the Green Day concert I went to Thursday. It was fantastic! They played the Sports Arena, and the place was jam-packed. Billie Joe Armstrong was in great form and seemed to really be enjoying himself (although I wonder what inhaling all that pot smoke means for his sobriety.) It was a great way to spend a day without Dodger baseball. Unlike this “Whole New Blue,” Green Day never disappoints.
