Well, I did it - I walked to the bus and rode to Angels Stadium to watch the Angels play the Tigers.
So how did the grand experiment work out? Very well.
The walking - to and from the bus stop (both from home and the stadium) was comfortable. I chatted with some very nice people as I left the bus both times: one was a fellow Angels fan and another was a nice Latina from my neighborhood who just wanted a little conversation. Since my seat was in the sun for most of the game, I wound up sitting a few rows higher in the shade. And the Angels won, which always helps make for a nice game.
The only lowlights were once I got home. I didn't put enough sunscreen on my legs, so I have sunburns on both my shins (I wore my cargo shorts to the game). My right knee was a little achy (it's just fine today). And I was exhausted enough to take a nap in the early afternoon.
I will most likely do this again when I attend my next game...and if it's an afternoon game I'll use more sunscreen.
The temperature will be jumping this weekend - up into the low 100s.
The fans are on, and the water dish reservoir will stay full.
We'll all be all right.

Guess who wants the health care bill passed in honor of Saint Ted Kennedy.
Just remember - we DON'T get Kennedy's plan.
Burt Prelutsky got the following e-mail that I think sums up Obama's health plan perfectly:
From the guy who brought you the "Sphere" room escape game comes a new one - Lights.
This one involves math, a mini-LCD game, and a live dog.
Oh, and there are two exits. Can you find both?
The new part for the bowling game has arrived, so I need to get in to work.
Be seeing you.
