Post-Game 53 Thread: With Fewer Fans To Evacuate, Frank McCourt's Insurance Fraud Plan Takes Root

MARLINS 6, DODGERS 1

From a MLB.com story following the game:

LOS ANGELES -- A section of the Dodger Stadium Reserve Deck was evacuated during the fifth inning of Saturday night's 6-1 loss to the Marlins because of a minor fire that broke out in a food vendor warehouse.

Fans were ordered out of the section above first base and down the right-field line as smoke wafted over the playing field. Meanwhile, the game continued with the Marlins leading, 3-1.

After the top of the sixth inning, a public-address announcement informed fans of the fire, calling it "small" in a "contained area" and "under control" by the Los Angeles Fire Department, assuring fans there was no need for further evacuations.

Not too difficult to contain an emergency situation when no large crowds are on hand in the first place! Meanwhile, Frank McCourt's latest plan for cash creation through insurance claims reflects new ownership lows.

Of course, I'm just kidding about the insurance fraud by means of starting fires in an empty storage room on an abandoned reserve level over a holiday weekend when fire departments are short-staffed. But just in case...shouldn't you remind yourself where the nearest exit is at the Stadium?

Everyone was freaking out about the smoke, but it was just from Uribe's Dodger Dog order.

Was thinking of going to today's game. But, I'm just not motivated to rush out and watch a buncha LHWGs.

Instead I guessI'll sit on the sofa and watch a buncha LHWGs.

There's always Kershaw and a possible Neeebs sighting.

You're a Medium Hitting White Guy, Neeebs. Makes it more palatable.

Steve Sax said...

Neeebs too! Shoot, I wish I could make it...

I'll be at hone hosting Mem Day guests and grillin' with the villains. Stop by after the game!

Are you going to have another one of those events where you buy and cook all the food, and Orel just shows up to eat?

^ Also known as every weekend.

Dusty Baker said...

Heh.

Steve Sax said...

Josh S: you beat me to it. And man, Orel can eat!
