Sort Of At-Game Recap: Dusty Baker, SoSG Stringer / Nacho Ambassador (June 1, 2011)

We've never done an At-Game Recap from a non-Son before, but what the hell, there's a first time for everything (except half-price beer at Dodger Stadium)! Here's SoSG regular Dusty Baker with a recap from Don Mattingly Bobblehead night, a night where the action on the field was lacking at best; Dusty did his best to at least find company for his misery in fellow SoSG reader Josh S:

Josh and I met up on the Field Level right as the game began. We quickly went on search for a birthday beer for me to buy Josh, which ended up being a Firestone DBA on draught. I had to give up the pink slip to my car to make the purchase (cc: Sax). We stood near where our separate but close by seats were and talked and drank our beer.

All of a sudden, Josh looked up and made note that the column we were standing near bore a fine number, indeed (see below). Note the look we're getting from the law enforcement official in the background.

We can only assume that's Dusty's finger. (UPDATE: It's not.)

After this numerological revelation, we headed out in search of some Mexican food. Walked all the way to the even-numbered end of the Field Level only to find Camacho's closed (cc: McCourt). Walked all the way back to the opposite end to find the other Camacho's stand open. However, there was a huge line (cc: Booz-Allen-Hamilton consultants) [Sax's note: not sure here if he's referring to the length of the line here or the girth of the Booz consultants.]. Nonetheless, we stood in line for the requisite 15 minutes or so while the team continued to suck offensively.

In the end, we got three giant hard shell tacos (Dusty) and nachos and a Dodger Dog (Josh). We then repaired to some back row seats to enjoy our light snacks and catch the rest of the game.

Sorry you missed DelinO and Alex Cora (and Alex Cora's mother!) at the Stadium last night! Hope you didn't get any salsa on the bobblehead, however. And thanks for the recap and picture!

UPDATE 6/3 9:22p: As per Dusty's request, here's the above picture, SoSG-ified:

I should have taken a picture of my nachos. I could compare it to the picture of my nachos from 2008 and do a whole post on the decline of the Camacho's Nachos.

Thanks again for the Firestone, Dust.

Happy birthday, Josh. Did you get any other good presents?

Steve Sax said...

certainly no present from the Dodgers last night...

Josh S. said...

Ubaldo gave me a swift kick in the nuts.

HAHA ASSHOLE I HAVE A LICENSE PLATE WITH MY NAME ON IT AND YOU DON'T!!!

Dusty Baker said...

Another masterfully insightful game note: as Josh and I were on our long sojourn from one closed Camacho's to the other one, we walked past a fella wearing a replica Dodgers jersey with the name "Tito" on the back. Josh had to hold me back from asking him for a tissue.

Oh, that's my finger, btw.

(pulls Josh's finger)

Mr. Customer said...

Christ on a cracker, I forgot. No game today!

*sulks*

Dusty Baker said...

I forgot, too! So sad. Got home late but rushed nonetheless to the sofa (Vinny), only to find no GT and hence, no game. Note that I opened the Mother Site first before actually tuning into the game.

What the hell else am I going to do tonight? Huh?

Oh, margaritas. That's what I'll do.

Mr. Customer said...

So say we all.

Steve Sax said...

At least the Mavs won. (That was a good game btw.)

Spank said...

I think Josh needs penicillin for that finger.

Dusty Baker said...

I was thinking of whether we should have a tiny blue smiley face covering up the tip of Josh's finger in Sons anonymity tradition.

Steve Sax said...

Ask, and ye shall receive, Dusty.

That is freaking rich, Saxy. +42
