Rod Carew, the #17 Greatest Angel according to HH, was in the booth on Opening Night to chat about
how MLB is using him to promote the All-Star Game in Anaheim this year. He was wearing an Angels jacket, even though they were playing against his beloved Twins, whose cap he wears in the Hall of Fame.
With his Panther-worthy swing he won my heart as a youngster, so he'll always hold a special place in my heart as an Angel (to the extent that I tipped the scales of voting in the first Top 100 Angels poll). But now that he has a frigging statue up now at the new stadium in Minneapolis, his legacy is tied even more to the Twins than ever before.
So I ask: Is it disingenuous for him to wear the Angels gear tonight? Is this pandering to SoCal Angels fans? Our first "Cool or Lame?" question of the year wants your opinion.
