Beach Chair Bungling?

Got word from an SoSG stringer that last night's Dodgers Beach Chair giveaway was mayhem during disbursement, which happened post-game outside the stadium and led to a chaotic scene evocative of UN aid giveaways in the third world. As if experiencing that late-inning loss to the Phillies wasn't depressing enough!

If you were there at the Stadium, interested to hear your story. Our stringer missed out on a Dodgers Beach Chair altogether.

That's disappointing. It had sounded like they thought this one through.

That would suck to have gone there and lost, then missed out on a beach chair.

I was always skeptical of the setup. Had rain check and/or disappointment written all over it.

The visual of the UN had me LMFAO

@Neeebs: I actually thought about adding a picture to the post of an overcrowded UN aid distribution, but thought that would be uncool.

The visual of that in Lot G of Dodger Stadium, however, with people clamoring over frickin' beach chairs, was exactly what my stringer described to me this morning.

You could have posted a video of a bum fight, perhaps?
