The weather outside is frightful …

… but it’s really not THAT bad. It has been snowing lightly all day, but the wind is blowing so hard that the snow isn’t sticking to anything. Mostly, it’s just cold, and it’s that biting, Midwestern kind of cold that we fortunately don’t have to deal with back in SoCal. The forecast high has dropped to 32 degrees (that’s freezing. for those who struggled in science class). But I will NEVER rip Miller Park again, because for all that is going on outside, it’s nice and toasty inside. One of the Brewers coaches is pitching BP to about 10 young boys who are here on a field trip or something, and not one of them is bundled up. Randy Wolf is doing his running around the warning track in a T-shirt and shorts. … By the way, the Dodgers have a special offer for fans who carpool to Monday’s home opener: a free ticket to a future game for each passenger. But there are several catches: first, you have to arrive at the stadium between 9:30 and 10:15 a.m. (game time is 1:10 p.m.), you have to park in Lot 15 (a farflung lot that is used only for sellouts), and the offer is limited to the first 600 cars. Those fans looking to take advantage of this should enter through the Academy gate. They will also be given early entrance to the park (the leftfield pavilion, not necessarily their assigned seating area) to watch batting practice. Oh, and the lots on Stadium Way by the Los Angeles Fire Dept. training facility will cost just $5. Most importantly, ALL OF THIS IS FOR OPENING DAY ONLY
