The city of Torrance recognized the Dodgers' Peanut Man, so he celebrated by bringing peanuts

In addition to the crack of the bat and the antics of the mascot, vendors are an essential part of what makes taking in a game at the ballpark so great. Though all vendors offer the convenience of being able to buy hot dogs and soda from your seat, the best vendors are also entertainers.

Seeing how much fun Owens' presence injected into the city council meeting, perhaps they will consider bringing The Peanut Man on for future sessions.
