At-Game Recap: Melting In The Sun (Sept. 1, 2013 vs. Padres)

Sunday's game this past Labor Day weekend was incredibly hot at the Stadium, so much so that it almost made it unbearable. It had that humid oppressiveness which would have been disgusting at Turner Field altogether. At Dodger Stadium, it wasn't that bad, but it was enough to find beads of sweat rolling down from your elbow and the back of your neck. One ended up being stuck to the seat.

Luckily I had great company at the game not to mention a fly-by from SoSG Dusty Baker and his groupies, which is always a pleasurable experience.

SoSG Trivia: This is not the first time I've used "Melting In The Sun", let alone an INXS reference, in an At-Game Recap. What's more, the Dodgers also won that game, much beer was again consumed, AND Sax and Dusty dry humped during the game. Eerie coincidences (and lack of originality) abound!

Oh, and I had beer. Admittedly, domestic light beer (it was hot!), but "beer" nonetheless.

KTLA guy was there. Man, that's a pretty cheesy jersey. I hope a bowl of soup came with that.

Cotton-ball clouds up above.

That is a long, loony last name.

Finally, someone found a good use for the Dodgers "hulk hands". It makes a large beer look like a 12-ouncer!

Spot the typo (unfortunately, it's not the 0-for-3 performance on the right).

52,168, as Jansen deals to Kotsay for the final out.

Dodgers SWEEP the Padres!

This time I took fewer shots of the field than normal. But whenever I was looking at the action on the field, I was trying to remember every shadow, every blade of grass, every bead of sweat--and save those images in my mind for later.

The summer of 2013 is going to move on much too quickly, I'm afraid. I want to savor every moment. Even the oppressively hot and humid ones.
