For all the Angels fans that are bailing out, that are hanging up their halos and heading for the door, GO! Get off the rally monkey's back, get in your cars and drive to the Staple Center...or wherever the next fair weather fan event is being held. Because this is the part of being a fan where it takes guts, where it takes FAITH, this is exactly the kind of series that tests everything, the manager, the team, and yes, the fans. So if this is where you get off, good, because from here on out, it's true Angel fans only.
This SERIES IS a LONG WAY from being over, ANGELS in 7! ANGELS in 7. PERIOD.
Our team went to New York, played in the cold, played in the rain, played against the best team money can buy, perhaps one of the best teams on paper, in our generation. No Yankee team has EVER hit this many home runs, they have 4 MVP candidates if you count A-Rod, Jeter, Tex, and CC and then Mariano Rivera isn't far behind in that category...so yes, this is FAR and AWAY the most STACKED team in the league, by about 80 million dollars!!! That being said, Baseball is about momentum and chemistry, that is why this Yankee team still lost 57 games this year despite being stuffed to the neck with cash.
The Angels just rolled over Boston like a tank running over plastic toy army men, and after all that buildup and hype, it was almost too easy. Boston had a glass jaw this year, the crumbled after one Torii Hunter uppercut, sprawled out on the floor in a puddle of steroids and stool. Their fans ran to their cars to hide the tears....
SO OUR team lost 2 games, that is why it's a 7 game series and not a 3 game series. The Yankees were supposed to win the first two, the Angels are supposed to win the next 3. We kicked Yankee but heading into the All STAR break and by god we can do it again, with even more gusto and vigor! If that happens....not only are we back in this thing, we can win this thing. In fact, we HAVE to win 2 of the next 3 and then just hold the line and muscle out a couple more. It won't be easy, it won't be relaxed, and IT NEVER SHOULD BE. EXPECT A BATTLE! EXPECT AN ANGEL's HERO to step up, Expect a miracle. WE ARE THE ANGELS.
STEP UP ANGELS FANS and BELIEVE IT!
GO ANGELS, and hell yes, I AM STILL PROUD OF THIS DAMN TEAM!!!!
