Schanuel's Streak and Exclusive Deals Continue

March 30, 2024

It was another brutal day for the Angels. Any hopes of the Angels making a comeback faded away when three grand slams became a potential strategy. The only reason I remained watching was to see if Nolan Schanuel would continue his 30 game on-base streak. He did in the bottom of the ninth. Ohtani also disappointed tonight, bringing the Dodgers’ extra inning game to an unsuccessful end.

Carl’s Jr. commercials seem to be living on Spectrum SportsNet LA this season. I saw multiple commercials about $5 burgers being available to order exclusively in the app. There are probably plenty of commercials that I missed, but that will happen when I am only tuning into Dodgers games to watch Ohtani. I haven’t seen any Carl’s Jr. commercials on Bally Sports West yet. I did see some El Pollo Loco commercials today. I am going to include those in my tally.

The Logs

The baseball games today were on at completely different times so I had two threads going. One to track the Angels game and the other for the Dodgers game. The Dodgers thread is lacking a couple of entries.

Tuning into the Angels game and I'm greeted by a banner ad for Smashed Jacks at Jack in the Box

End 3rd:

Make that two commercials for the Smashed Jack.

Is El Pollo Loco fast food? I saw two commercials for it.

Oh and that $5 burger promo again.

Dodgers game is currently in a rain delay. I don't know if I'll check back in on it. I'm only watching it for Ohtani.
