Sharks expected to host outdoor game and this was expected

I attended the Stadium Series at Dodger Stadium earlier this year and it was amazing. The atmosphere was fun, the experience was electric and the presentation was wonderful. I was afraid that the weather would be a major concern but since it was after sunset, it was perfect for a fan like me.
