What your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions
Look at this. Just when you thought the whole “throwback” thing couldn’t get any worse, the Dodgers once again show they can take any problem and make it worse. Seriously, look at these things. It’s almost as if Andre Ethier, Clayton Kershaw and Matt Kemp are auditioning for the Village People’s new baseball character. Moreover, why is Kershaw wearing an “LA” cap and a “Brooklyn” jersey. No wonder the McCourts are in the middle of the ugliest divorce in the history of California.
This is just another example of what a mess this franchise is, and worse yet, it’s because it’s “fans” voted for this. Nearly 50,000 votes were cast in favor of a 1940’s satin uniform as the winning throwback jersey for six mid-week day games in 2011. The original uniform worn in the 1940s was made of a highly reflective satin fabric to make it more visible under the lights for night games. The Dodgers say the throwback jersey, which is a light blue color with “Brooklyn” across the chest, will have a similar feel.
Read that again. The originals were made of a highly reflective fabric for night games, yet the Dodgers intend to wear them during day games under the blazing Southern California sun. Better yet, the jerseys will be available for purchase by fans at Dodger Stadium on April 21, when the Dodgers will wear them for the first time. against the Atlanta Braves. To avoid having your retinas burned out of your skull, we advise wearing a welding mask to Dodger Stadium for the following games:
In honor of the throwback uniforms, those games will also feature half-price food and drink, including alcoholic beverages, for the first time at Dodger Stadium. Great…Just what the Pavillion needs – more obnoxious drunks. For the real gluttons for punishment, a special half-price six-game ticket plan is available for fans who want to attend each of the games. I can’t wait to see how this plays out…the Pavillion full of blinded, low-rent drunks on a hot afternoon in Los Angeles.
Yeah, that’s not a recipe for disaster at all, but that’s why they are the Dodgers. At least they aren’t handing out baseballs this time.
