How Funny, No Cheering, Not enough audience so the bear thought he needs to bring a charm to the game.

There was this bear called "Meatball" in LA, so called as he'd broken into some guy's garage freezer and eaten a whole package of Costco meatballs. Animal control relocated him back to the mountains, but he returned, so they relocated him deep into the mountains, but he returned. So they relocated him to a sanctuary in San Diego, where he can have all the meatballs he wants. That's the way to take care of wayward bears - not shooting them. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w3pb9uHmARY

It was unbearably hot at the game today. 35 degrees. Now we know why.
