Dodger Stadium Draws 41,107 For Monster Energy AMA Supercross Event
Published January 24, 2011
DODGERS SELLING OUT? In L.A., Tom Hoffarth wrote Supercross "crossed the line," as Dodger Stadium was "transformed into a giant truck stop." Hoffarth: "We shouldn't assume the Dodgers, first-timers in this undertaking, sold their souls to a lime-green energy drink/transmission fluid. ... We have no ballpark figure on what the Dodgers ownership stands to gain from this self-infected wound. We just now realize that, having seen it all unload, we doubt we'd have done this if we owned the place." Hoffarth added, "We can only wonder how low this could go from here" (L.A. DAILY NEWS, 1/23).
