Fan dressed as Poseidon vows to protect the D-backs' pool from the Dodgers


Poseidon protects D-backs pool


It wasn't the San Francisco Giants who offended half of Arizona by jumping into the pool at Chase Field last season, that was the Los Angeles Dodgers. But Thursday, during the Giants' game with the Arizona Diamondbacks, a guy dressed as Poseidon, God of the sea, was keeping watch over the right-field pool.

Poseidon and his crew — mermen included, we can't wait to hear John McCain's opinion on that — didn't seem especially concerned about Pablo Sandoval and Tim Lincecum blasting cannon balls into the pool.

Their focus was mostly on the Dodgers, holding a sign that said no Dodgers were allowed. In a TV interview, this Poseidon fellow said he will watch over the pool when the Dodgers come to town too.

These folks don't appear to be on the team payroll, just fans really buying into the narrative. Maybe when the Dodgers are in town — that's April 11-13, by the way — the D-backs can get Poseidon and his pals to protect the pool, and them pay him in 18-inch corndogs.
