about time. Is he the only Dodgers HOF'er that doesn't have one? Also I heard Tommy's Burgers is coming to Dodger Stadium also amazing amazing news!

I'm more excitied over Tommy's Burger if that's true. Hopefully King Taco is next, and get the Doyer Dog and the other gourmet Dodgers dogs at every level.

As long as they get rid of bleh Carl's Jr., and Panda Express. They remind me of Frank McCourt's cheapness.
