Like many folks who follow the Dodgers , I was driving around town late Wednesday afternoon when Rick Monday waved me home.
Monday and Kevin Kennedy were splendidly calling it on radio, setting it up for me to rush to the living room and watch the ending on television.
I sped to my street, crawled through a pack of utility trucks lining the block, then sprinted into the house just in time to flick on Spectrum SportsNet LA and watch Hill freeze Sean Rodriguez on a full-count fastball and strike him out looking to end the eighth inning.
But now that I’ve been personally reminded what it’s like to be in the dark, especially during what may be the greatest summer in major league history, my latest criticism will take the form of a question.
I was reminded Wednesday night that, while one can certainly follow the Dodgers without television, it takes work, it requires imagination, and it’s not all that fun.
