Open Thread, the future: Padres vs China

I feel like we've already played sooo much baseball today. I mean, really. Another game? Thanks to yesterday's (today's?) tie, the Padres can still come away from China with a better China record than the Dodgers. You know what's interesting to me is the fact that the Chinese people have no reason to hate the Dodgers the way that everybody in America hates the Dodgers, yet they picked up very quickly that the Dodger organization is one to be despised. It's very interesting to me how certain parts of our culture translate so readily in foreign countries. It would not surprise me to hear Beat LA chants in the stands today, and when that happens, the red menace of communism will find its grip on the world loosened a little bit more.
