one night at Chavez Ravine

So I made my first trip to Dodger Stadium on Monday night. The Boys in Blue (sorry, Pierre Robeire, it actually works for them) lost big to the Cards. I managed to harass Scott Rolen, grab a few Dodger Dogs, and take in most of the game. My rating for the stadium? I'd say a solid B.

The atmosphere is good and the stadium is classically simple. Yes, there are too many rich people who come in late and don't make enough noise, but even most of the fans in the good sections appreciate the game. They weren't falsely excited, either, like those bizarre Angel fans. Good for them. It's not as intense as the Vet, and not as fancy as PNC, but it's a nice mix.
