Dodgers fans, especially lawyers, have no sense of humor, a federal judge recently proved. Confident of the San Francisco Giants’ chances of clinching its division, die-hard fan and U.S bankruptcy judge Alan Jaroslovsky boldly announced weeks ago that he would be unavailable during all post-season baseball games. “Any emergency matters arising during that time may be taken before any of the bankruptcy judges of the Central District of California or the District of Arizona, who will not be similarly distracted,” Jaroslovsky announced on the court’s Web site, aiming a dig at two Giants’ rivals, the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Arizona Diamondbacks. Then a lawyer from Los Angeles called him up and asked if he was serious. Nah. But the judge is serious about one thing now — seeing his Giants bring home their first World Series championship to San Francisco. He sounds like a man with a bad case of pennant fever. “This is the best Giants team since the days of Mays, McCovey, Cepeda and Marichal,” said Jaroslovsky. The Giants went on to win their division and against the New York Mets began their sixth foray into the post-season since moving west in 1958. “I’ve been a fan since the Seals Stadium days,” explains the Santa Rosa, Calif.-based Jaroslovsky, referring to the Giants’ first San Francisco home at 16th and Potrero streets. “This is the most fun season. Between the new ballpark and the team, this has been a great year,” he continues. After attending about 20 games this year, including the division clincher against the Diamondbacks, Jaroslovsky spent hours on the Internet to get a ticket for Thursday’s playoff game against the New York Mets. But he doesn’t have tickets — yet — for any other games. “I’ve got to put in some work,” the judge said.
