As every Dodger fan knows, this is no ordinary season. In fact, the Militant just got his tickets to the big March 29 Coliseum Game this week, and the stoke factor is extremely high.
To celebrate the first day of Spring (Winter, YOU SUCK!) and the approaching of Dodger season, the Militant rode to the Stadium on Thursday and snapped a pic of the currently-vacant baseball cathedral (pictured left). Upon arriving, the dude at the gate did a double-take but let him in assuming he was a bike messenger. Of course, this was not the first time the Militant rode his bike to the Stadium, nor would it be the last. In fact, for the first time Dodgers management is accepting the notion of people arriving to the game on bike. Coincidence? The Militant thinks not. Of course, there's still more work to be done in terms of transportation options for the only major sports venue in the United States not served by transit.
The Stadium looks pretty much the same, with the oversized banners of the much-beleaguered 2007 Dodgers still hanging on its outside walls. There have been small changes to the parking lot, namely the planting of large bonsai-style trees around the stadium and the establishment of traffic flow-dictating plastic water-filled barriers around the lot (pictured right).
As for Torre Time, Kuroda, Nomar's wrist, I Don't Know's On 3rd and Mr. (Andruw) Jones, the Militant will save all that talk until the season begins just days from now. In the meantime, watch this for your amusement:
