Do you put the shopping carts back in the corral?

California is about to fall off of the rest of the country anyway.

THAT reference you get!?!?!?!

Chad, he was on life support in a coma in the 90's.  They 70's are still vivid for him.

Watch it there, bud!


By the way, is that the Vons on Lincoln in Anaheim?

TAC

The Vons is in Escondido. Staying here for the week. We spent the weekend in Disney. Well, went to the parks one day and used it as our base.

My son toured USC on Saturday. It was cool to see the coliseum. Gets pretty sketchy just south of the college though. Where the hell do people park for the coliseum. Seems like it'd be a damn nightmare getting in and out of there. At least the highw.. I mean freeway is right there.

It was Saturday, and there wasn't much going on, believe me. There were a couple of homeless women pushing shopping carriages around the entrances but they appeared to be taken.

Unlikely.  In California, even the homeless are properly educated.

If by corral you mean alley by the freeway, then yes.

It will be a bloody nightmare parking and traffic wise when Iron Maiden comes to the soccer stadium next to the coliseum in September.  I have no idea what to do in terms of parking.

It was like that when I was there (in '91), it was like that when my friend's daughter toured there (in 2010, roughly) and it seems that nothing has changed.  Beautiful campus, just south, not so much.

It absolutely is a nightmare around the Coliseum.  Staples Center (where the Kings, Clippers and some other team play) is about two miles north of the Coliseum, and it's awful when the Kings are playing the same time as USC.  I've only ever been to two events at the Coliseum:  The Who and the Rolling Stones, both in 1989.  I don't remember where we parked for the Who, but for the Stones we parked in someone's backyard.  I was supposed to go see the Dodgers and Red Sox play at the Coliseum about 10 years ago.  We were going to park at Dodger Stadium and take a shuttle, but when we got to Dodger Stadium, the line to get on the shuttle was literally half a mile long, so we just turned around and headed home.  There's now a Metro train stop that's walking distance from the Coliseum, which is what I'll use if I ever go there for something.

Got it.  So all I need to do is park somewhere that has the metro expo line.  How much would that set me back?  Would it still be less than the $40.00 or something like in that amount that the stadium is charging for parking?  I don't mind spending the extra time getting to the stadium and back to the parking lot.  Any chance we can pay for cheaper parking and ensure we can get back to our cars safely, I will take it.

Oh, sorry for going off-topic btw, I did need to ask this question somewhere down the line either in the concerts thread or the Iron Maiden thread, but since TAC mentioned USC and the coliseum, I thought now's my chance.

Does this mean I've got the power of the holy spirit on my side? 'cause I've got a lot of rains to bless while I'm cleansing Wal-Marts across the nation of their shopping cart epidemic
