Free Dodgers tickets, sort of

Well, it's nice that the Dodgers give some free tickets to their neighbors in Echo Park. But it's curious that they don't go the whole distance and provide free parking, too. What is it with this team and parking? Never mind, don't answer that. With attendance at the stadium low, Chicken Corner wonders that they don't try harder to fill seats, even at the expense of a few parking spaces.

Here is the invitation posted on the neighborhood list serv (and emailed directly to Chicken Corner as well):

As has been our standing offer, we have a limited number of tickets available for members of the Echo/Elysian Park and Solano Canyon communities who are interested in attending the event. *Please understand these tickets are on a first-come, first-served basis* ... also, note that this does NOT include parking).

As regards the Dodgers, Chicken Corner is very curious about the public ownership possibility, which the city council endorsed 8-2 today (both LaBonge and Garcetti missing the vote, and Reyes voting no). Imagine the people of Los Angeles owning all those parking spaces.... Cluck, cluck.
