Snap Judgment: Rally Monday at Angel Stadium
"Last night was pretty cool. Total access for the entire stadium! It was like a boyhood dream, but I was disappointed that the team was not there and that I couldn't get an autograph without running the risk of being blacklisted.
The Register reports that some 15,000-20,000 fans showed up. Hearing the roar they made from the field level was deafening! The whole thing was a trip, but it sort of flat-lined after the former Angels spoke.
In other news, The English Beat was great! They did their hits. But the USC marching band was a disappointment. It was a partial squad and I'm pretty sure it was just freshmen and sophomores on the green. Perhaps the upperclassmen got a break since they did play in Seattle this past weekend.
After the former players spoke, they did a highlight reel of the season. Then, fireworks. Ooh, Fireworks! Great for the kids, but not for me, unless choreographed by the National Philharmonic."
Gah. Victorio's a tough guy to please. But thanks for the pictures, dude.
