    Do you mean the Anaheim Angels and the Los Angeles Dodgers? If so, I don't see much rivalry other than the fact that Los Angeles actually plays there, while the Angels play in Anaheim.

    Before this, the Los Angeles Dodgers were the first west coast team, followed by the California Angels.

      ^^ Why is the teenaged batboy jawing with Jorge Posada?


      ^^ What the heck is going on here?

      Hopefully, today's photo ops will be better. Ken, y'all smile out there in TV land. You're being watched on Fox. :

        Change this to "Dogs were first team in LA County, followed by the Angels" and you'd be correct. As written it's just plain wrong there East Coast Don.

          I was really referring to west coast baseball.

          • Dogs? Really?

            No one can make you
            Do what they want to
            You know you're stronger
            Than the lies
            That they tell you

              I like dogs and would never disrespect a dog by comparing Man's Best Friend to a Dodgers fan. That's just wrong.

                  That rivalry hasn't been around long enough to compare to the Sawx/Yankees rivalry.

                    I was afraid of that.

                    In order:

                    Dodgers 1958
                    Giants 1958
                    Angels 1961
                    A's 1968
                    Padres 1969
                    Mariners 1977

                    HTH

                    Now then, who are the "Dogs"?
                    You've never heard of Dodger dogs?

                    Though you'd be excused if you thought I might be referring to the team that plays in Petco.

                    • These two are great. Who is the little guy anyway?

                      Why are they wearing a pair of socks on their shoulders? Airing their laundry?
                      Are they clean or dirty?

                        Oh my, your words cut through me like a scythe.

                        I cannot go on with my life.

                          No please, don't do it! Without Dodger fans to make fun of our lives would be less full. :hissyfit:

                                Doing just fine. We're beating up on a bunch of cheese puffs right now, but such is life.

                                How was life from 1919 to 2003? That's quite a few generations ago, I hear. Were you (or even your grandparents) alive back then?
