Charlie Brown 2


Last Wednesday night I did my usual weekday Dodger game routine. I clicked on the Dodger Gameday Audio feed at 10:05 p.m., stretched out on the couch, and started listening to Vin Scully. Eventually I dozed off, although it seemed that I woke anytime something significant occurred. I heard the Dodgers score the go-ahead run, and later heard Jonathan Broxton close out the game in the top of the ninth. I toddled off to bed happy. The team was on a serious roll. They had the best record in baseball, and the win had set a new modern major league record for home wins to start a season (13 straight). It was a good day to be a Dodger fan.

Thursday was much less good.
