Happy Opening Day, everyone. If you happen to be in southern California, it’s going to be a festive affair over at Dodger Stadium, where the Giants are in town. Be sure and pick up a copy of Dodgers Magazine while you’re there, where you’ll find … wait, what the hell? Tim Lincecum on the cover?
What next? Alex Rodriguez on the cover of the Red Sox program?
“I don’t mind. I actually like it. It’s time for explosive openings,” says Vin Scully Is My Homeboy, who sent me this. “Tim Lincecum and Clayton Kershaw. Fans can only purchase this version of the magazine at Dodger Stadium merchandise stands on Opening Day.”
I wonder how other Dodgers fans are going to feel about using the Giants to promote their team. It probably won’t go over well once they see the airplane banner.
Other, rejected ideas for the Opening Day cover of Dodgers Magazine:
- A confused Matt Kemp trying to find his way out of the stadium.
- Don Mattingly wrestling with a rusty shopping cart.
- Phil Shuman crashing his dirt bike.
