I had a dream last night that the Red Sox and the Angels were both eliminated in the first round of the MLB playoffs. Okay, I’m lying. I had a dream that the Red Sox lost three straight to the White Sox and that the Angels went on to beat the Yankees in this first round and then eventually on to win the World Series.
I have no problem with the Angels, in theory. I think they are a talented team. They play in a great stadium (although the rally monkey thing should really go away), plus, they have good coaching and nice fans. And that’s the problem. You guys are too nice. “Fan” is short for “Fanatic.” You Angels fans are just kind of happy about your team. You’re not fanatics.
Red Sox fans own you. Don’t believe me? Here’s proof from the most recent Angels/Red Sox series in Anaheim. Keep that in mind when you’re watching this: THIS IS IN ANAHEIM. It’s the last out before the Red Sox win the game. Schilling is on the mound.
A visiting team’s fans louder than the home team’s fans? That’s some crap you’d never hear at Fenway. I’m just saying.
