i once threw a sombrero to the sky, but now i pull my hat down in embarassment

tomorrow marks the 22nd anniversary of fernando's no-hitter against the cardinals, commemorated on this 1991 score card.
i can still remember pedro guerrero grounding into the game-ending double play and vin scully suggesting that we throw our sombreros to the sky in celebration.

so, what does this have to do with anything?  nothing really - i'm just hoping the dodgers can score a run for a change.  they don't face johan santana until saturday, so maybe they can avoid a whitewashing in at least one of the two games before then. and if chris capuano wants to no-hit his former team tonight, by all means, please do so.  it might be the only way he can win.
