Dodgers Gaining Character

I'm saying you've already done plenty of things to regret, you just don't know what they are. It's when you discover them, when you see the folly in something you've done, and you wish that you had it do over, but you know you can't, because it's too late. So you pick that thing up, and carry it with you to remind you that life goes on, the world will spin without you, you really don't matter in the end. Then you will gain character, because honesty will reach out from inside and tattoo itself across your face.
—Roger Rueff, "The Big Kahuna"

(Thanks to Mrs. Orel for showing me the quote!)

My favorite Roger Rueff quote is probably: "We toons may act idiotic, but we're not stupid. We demand justice. Why, the real meaning of the word probably hits you like a ton of bricks!"

Roger had a hot wife, too.

By the way, the crowd shot behind Andre Ethier is awesome.
