It's time for Dodgers' baseball, and once again, it's with the Hoosier Alums in the All-You-Can-Eat Pavilion.

Seeing the Dodgers is one of those "gotta do it so you know it's summer" kind of things. The list also includes seeing something at the Hollywood Bowl and a couple of Last Remaining Seats movies (see posts from Tacos Mexico and Pie Boy Pizza from last June, and Hollywood Bowl in July). The Indiana University Alumni Association generally plans an outing when the Cubs are on the schedule. Lately, we've got our tickets in the All-You-Can-Eat seats. For complete disclaimer, I did not fully step up to that challenge. Two Dodger Dogs, a lemonade, and peanuts to-go were plenty. The Hoosiers were split between Dodgers and Cubs fans, which made for some interesting interpretations when the crowd roared. Was that good for the Dodgers or good for the Cubs? I was a Mets fan (whatever happened to Lee Mazzilli and Alex Trevino?) during my formative years in Indiana, so my alliances went with the LA lads.

The Dodgers won for the Hoosiers tonight because they have a secret weapon: Manager Don Mattingly is from Evansville, Indiana. Take that Cubs fans!
