Bill Dwyer hates your favorite team

This article has me enraged, so I'll present some money quotes without comment. Let's discuss to our hearts' content.

The best team in baseballisn't even the biggest story in its own city. Right now, Los Angeles is all caught up in the Dodgers' magic number and only casually interested in the Angels' magic team.

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim adopted a city, and the city it adopted mostly shrugs in return.

We are all Dodgers, all the time, 24/7 Blue Heaven. What if they were a really good team? What if they win another playoff game? Will we offer our firstborn in celebration?

...

The days ahead will be exciting. All eyes will be on the Dodgers, as clinching-time approaches. The headlines will get bigger, the news broadcasts louder. Those who get paid handsomely these days to count Web hits will do so joyously, because Dodger buzz always drives Internet clatter.

It is late September, almost always Dodger time here. All eyes will be focused on Chavez Ravine. In this city, the Dodgers will have it all.
