Take me out to the ball game (Dodger Stadium)

"Mrs. Gohan" was able to buy Dodgers tickets from her work, so we decided to go and enjoy an evening at the ball park. But what an ordeal! The Dodgers game started at 7:45pm on a Friday night. Mind you, I only live about 20minutes away from Dodger Stadium. We left at 7:00pm and it took us about TWO HOURS to get there. The parking at Dodger Stadium is a complete nightmare. I could not believe it. But it didn't stop there. Before we sat down, we decided to get some food first. We were not only here to see the game, we were also here to eat some Dodger Dogs. That too was an ordeal! It took over THIRTY minutes just to get our food. By the time we sat down it was around 9:30pm and we missed half the game! Unbelievable. I was so frustrated! Another thing that frustrated me that night was the fact that my favorite team, The Lakers, were playing one of the biggest games of the season that night, and I had to be here waiting and waiting and waiting. On top of that, the food like any other sporting event is expensive. I don't mind paying for the food, but when I have to wait that long just for a hot dog. Forget it! I was literally sweating with frustration. As far the Dodger Dog is concerned, it was just OK. It might have been better, but I just couldn't get over all the frustration. Even writing about this is making my blood pressure rise. I hope the next time I go to a Dodgers game it will be better.
