The Dodgers Decided It's Not A Good Idea To Sell Half-Priced Booze At Day Games

Thirteen days after a Giants fan was beaten into a coma outside Dodger Stadium by two reportedly drunk savages, the Los Angeles Dodgers announced tonight that "half-price alcoholic beverages are no longer part of the Dodgers' Half Price Food & Drink Promotion." The first cheap drunkening would have been next Thursday.

The press release that the team released a few hours ago didn't reference the opening-day incident. Alas, John Steigerwald doesn't have another column slated for the Observer-Record until next Sunday, but you can rest assured he's crafting an argument to paint Bryan Stow as a socialist who hinders free-market progress.
