So much for Pringle’s boycott of the Los Angeles Angels

Anaheim Mayor Curt Pringle sued the owner of the Angels, Arte Moreno, when their name was changed to the Los Angeles Angels.  He said at the time that he would boycott the Angels’ games.  I guess he has changed his mind.  The O.C. Register is reporting that Pringle and a bunch of his City of Anaheim cronies got in free to the first playoff game this week with the Red Sox.

The FPPC is considering forcing politicos like Pringle to report these freebies – which would limit them to watching only one or two games a year.  But in the meantime they keep helping themselves.  They just can’t help it.

Perhaps the Angels lost game one because Pringle was there?

To be fair, some tickets were donated to charities – in my opinion they all ought to be donated to charities.  If politicians want to see these games they ought to pay what we have to pay – anywhere from $200 to $2,000.
