While I can acknowledge that the Dodgers have a much bigger and better history than the Angels, I'd just like to mention that most of those years are before your time.

Even as a Lakers fan. The great showtime years was in the 80s. I did not watch basketball then. I do love my Lakers for winning their championships, but I can only say I've been through 3 of them in the 2000 era.
I became a Laker fan back during the 1992-1993 season, and it was definitely dreadful. But when I personally "trash talk" so to speak... I don't brag about the championships before my time.
Unless you guys are seriously 100+ something years old, then brag away!
But the argument can never end... and I guess that is what's fun about it. Angels fans are happy because their team has been in contention for 4-5 years in a row now. Dodger fans are happy because their team has more history. Nobody wins out of this situation. The best thing to do is to drop it before people start flaming each other.
BTW. SuxBeingU. What about the soda from the fountain? Or should people just stick to the ones in bottles? =x

Hell, we almost had Vlad but because a sale was in process, Fox didn't pull the trigger so here we sit today without a power hitter.
I was skeptical of McCourt at the beginning and he made some mistakes (i.e. first go around with the box seats at field level), I now feel that this team is on the right track from the GM all the way down to the Scouting and Farm System.

In Florida they would have counted the rats as attendance.

I'm pretty sure it was McCourt who nixed that to get the sale approved because of his financial issues at the time.

Eating at Angles stadium should be the least of your concerns. Ive been inside a few distribution centers for grocery stores down in East LA, its not pretty. The only thing worse than the grocery store dist. center was the Cup of Noodles factory.

Telephone Park looks more empty than Dolphin Stadium when Bonds' night is over.
