There was another fire at Dodger Stadium this morning

On Saturday night there was a small fire in a storage room at Dodger Stadium that caused smoke to be visible from the stands and required that a bunch of fans be moved from the upper decks along the first base line to other seats.  Now it’s being reported that there was a second fire this morning in the same store room. The reports say that the Saturday fire was caused by “paper products igniting.”  No word yet on the second fire.  It’s totally irresponsible for us to speculate, of course.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to continue work on my novel. It’s a fantastical, fictional story about a businessman who buys an NBA team called the Los Alamos Diggers, runs them into the ground, is taken to the brink financially and then collects millions on the insurance when his arena burns down in a mysterious fire.

    “It’s totally irresponsible for us to speculate, of course.”

    Well. this does not apply to the bicept man. I will speculate for you, then.

    Rumor has it that Frank McCourt, in an act of desperation to make payroll and pay off the Stow’s, attempted to burn down the stadium for insurance money. Apparently, he couldn’t even do that right.

    During the negotiations between the owner and Tony (the torch) Trattoria, it comes out that a detective Joe Thursday has been secretly investigating the incidents, and shagging the owner’s ex-wife. This leads to a frantic chase that covers the catacombs of the world, from The Vatican to Las Vegas.
    Anyone have Nick Cages cell number? If not, continue the treatment.

    McCourt needs the insurance money.

        Assuming the insurance is paid up to date.

      SmackSaw, paperlions beat you to that joke by a full day. But after the second fire, I must confess that I am forced to begin taking the idea seriously.
