OK, today's matchup at Dodger Stadium is an afternoon game. It won't be nearly as full as Opening Day — in fact, they're sending out email offers of deep discounts on tickets. So it should be a much easier mid-day challenge than the opener. If there are any complaints about gridlock on Sunset Boulevard or if the ingress and egress is still bad, I'll know to stay away until the geniuses who messed up the system get it right. From what I hear, fear of spending an hour in the parking lot is driving a lot of fans out of their seats even earlier than usual.
