Dodgers organist's response to parking lot fire is hilarious (and ruthless)

Sometimes, just a well-timed tune can bring a smile to Dodgers fans' faces during tough moments.

Los Angeles Dodgers games, like any other event where a bunch of people get together in a large crowd, can often be the site of some truly weird things happening. Just a couple years ago, a very stubborn goose decided to invade Game 2 of the NLDS against the Padres. The Dodgers lost that game, by the way, so we also hate geese now.

The weirdness from Dodger Stadium was a bit more scary than a goose on Wednesday as, before the game, a car caught fire in the Dodgers parking lot, causing fans to scatter and be understandably concerned. However, the burning car was situated away from the stadium, and it became clear that it was an isolated event that was getting handled. In that moment, the Dodgers organist decided to strike.

First and foremost, we hope everyone is okay. It doesn't sound like there were any publicly known injuries from the fire, but obviously the owner of the car probably is having, at best, a really bad day due to the fallout from their car erupting in flames.

That said, this is just A+ work from the Dodgers organist to make light of what was originally a scary and weird situation. Not every MLB organist has all the Billy Joel classics in their pocket waiting for the right opportunity, but Dodgers organist Dieder Ruehle sure did, and it provided some great levity in the situation.

Ruehle is forging quite the reputation for his sense of humor and willingness to troll as well. Last season, Ruehle savagely roasted the Athletics when they came to town by playing "Viva Las Vegas" when the A's took the field. Obviously this was a reference to the team's planned move to Las Vegas that seems to have been concocted using the plot from "Major League", but it was still a nice touch to the game day festivities.

Not all heroes wear capes and, in this case, the Dodgers' organist fit the bill and rose to the moment once again.
