Freeway Series — Angels Sweep!

Okay.

I live in LA. I love LA. But I grew up in Orange County.

And growing up in the OC means that I’m an Angels fan. So is my whole family. In 2002 when the Angels won the Series, our whole family — Aunts, Grandmas, girl friends, pets — we all wore Championship T-Shirts to Thanksgiving to take pictures for a family calendar.

So today was the final game in the Freeway Series, and it’s pretty clear who’s playing the best baseball in SoCal.

The Angels.

Sweep this series and took the preseason match-up 2-1.

It was a fun game to attend. I went with my Dad and we sat way up high between 3rd and Home. There were a ton of trash talking Dodger fans in our section.

What happens when you choke? You turn Dodger Blue. :P

Anywho, interesting developments since I went to a game last season. The Angels now sell commercials on the Jumbotron, not ust the lame contests that are sponsored, but actual commercials for DVDs, etc that took over the big screen and the PA.

And the were outages of Nacho Cheese and Hot Dogs at the concessions stands. WTF?

I’m going to a Dodger game (traitor I know) in a few months, I haven’t been there since I was a kid. What should I expect? (And yes I’ll root for the Dodgers when I go.)

Here’s more photos I took from the game here.

  1. At Dodger Stadium, you want to try a Dodger Dog, but you must be careful to get a grilled one, not a steamed one. The stands are marked differently, so you need to look carefully.

    Second, you must try ‘Dipping Dots’ and reach the conclusion, that it is so horrible, it could only be a sign of the coming Zombie Apocalypse…

  2. @jozjozjoz: Yeah I don’t think many fans of the Angels like the new name either. I mean the city of Anaheim sued and most everyone I knew thee supported that suit at least in spirit (it was pretty clear they didn’t have an actual case). It was funny to me that the Dodger fans were heckling, “We’re the *real* LA,” at the game, some how implying that there was any support for the new name. It was just Arte Moreno doing what he does best, marketing. Getting attention.

    Sitting at the game I felt the first sort of cross town rivalry — I didn’t go to USC or UCLA. So this was my first taste. And it was fun.
