Something everyone can agree on- Dodgers suck

So we are in Arizona for Spring Training this weekend. Were we not Jeff, Quinlan, Josh Paul fans, we'd have come up on the wrong side of today's split squad. But since we like all those guys, we were pretty happy. Jeff played right field the whole game, it was like old times.

We missed most of the first inning thanks to serious parking issues, but we don't think Jeff got a hit.

On the whole it was not an interesting game. Jeff looked comfortable in the outfield, but wasn't impressive. Quinlan looked bad (in fact late-inning sub Mr. X looked way better). The Angels only had like 5 hits. Josh Paul still cannot throw out a base-stealing batter. Curtis Pride contributed an actual hit.

The only excitement was a 2-run scoring triple right when we arrived by Lou Merloni, and the ruckus caused by a group of around 15 Dodger fans taking a parade stroll around the stadium, eliciting jeers from Giants fans and Angels fans alike. (Although those sitting near me chanted "beat LA" and were quite pleased with themselves for picking a chant that covered all the applicable bases).

Jeff's hair is both overly-long and suspiciously light. I thought it looked good when he was hatless at the AngelFest, but with a hat, he looks like an unkempt farmboy (no offense to actual farmboys I have known and loved). I wouldn't go on so much about the hair, but it was a boring game to my eyes, OK?

I'll post more when the box score is up and I can fill in the blanks about who some of the people were and what they did that was or wasn't of note.

You are incorrect, sir. Dodgers rule!!!
