Blue Plate Special: Dodger Stadium

I was able to get down to the field level for the May 2nd game and sample some of the food fare.  First up, the Bacon Wrapped Dodger Dog.  Bacon on a Dodger Dog?  Yes, please.  Side of jalapeño?  Yup.  This was a nice twist on the world famous Dodger Dog.  I have tried at home to grill Dodger Dogs wrapped in bacon before, and it was kind of difficult because all of the grease from the bacon dripped down into the hot bricks, which then started a mini fire and burned the dog.  So, I will let someone else do it.  I could do without the mayo on top, but I guess it gives it a little bit of sweetness.  I will rate this one a stand up double.


We then moved on to try to eat something healthier and sampled the marketplace, where they sell fruit cups and salads (sorry no pictures).  We had the mango cup which comes with the spice which was nice.  However the veggie salad was old and we had to pick out about 1/3 of the pieces.  The dressing for the salad was nice, but overall disappointing.  I rate this one a bloop single for the mango cup and a pop up bunt for an out for the salad.

Still hungry, the scoreboard flashed the home stand special Caribbean spicy ribs with ghost chili sauce and pineapple cole slaw.  This was sold at the Think Blue BBQ stand behind left field.  This one was good, a little too spicy for me with a strong kick at the end.  And very messy.  But there was plenty of meat on the ribs and tasted really good with a cold coke.  The cole slaw was delicious too.  I rate this one a stand up triple.


So there you have it.  I ate a lot that day (including some frozen ice cream).  I also got an autographed baseball from Brett "my twitter game is strong" Anderson and almost caught a ball thrown into the stands by Joc Pederson (deflected off the guy in front of me, hit my right arm, glanced off Mrs. Cora's hand and into the hand of guy next to her - DAMMIT!)  Maybe all of that food caused my reflexes to slow.  But was good to see the comeback win!  Go Blue!

Howie Kendrick could have had a stand-up double yesterday, instead of that sit-down-in-the-dugout triple attempt.
