Lol. This was the year the Padres were going to take down the Dodgers. Instead they have faded away and won’t even sniff the playoffs. The Padres were supposed to get Scherzer. What a joke. Scherzer was never going to go that bunch of losers. Of course he ended up with the Dodgers. 

You’re a Dodgers fan?

Rays fans seem OK … mostly because no one has ever met one.

Yep, was a Brooklyn fan and was ecstatic when the Bums moved to LA. I went to many a game in the LA Coliseum and Chavez Ravine. Saw some of the old guys play like Gil Hodges, Duke Snider, Peewee Reese, Carl Furillo, Jim Gilliam, Johnny Padres, Sandy Koufax, Don Drysdale. Unfortunately Roy Campanella was paralyzed in a car accident just before the Dodgers moved to LA. 
 

My wife is a Giants fan having grown up in Menlo Park. She went to games when Mays, McCovey, Cepeda, Marichal, Perry, the Alous, and those guys played.

There's definitely a shade of penis envy in our hate for LA and their sports teams, but it stems from no small part from the traffic, congestion, pollution, and violence that has spilled down here for decades, combined with the plasticine douchiness of your prototypical Los Angelean.

They stole our Clippers. They stole our Chargers. Traffic on the 405 reminds me of Bombay rush hour. Honestly, while there are more than a few provincial pockets of cool, LA in general has the redeeming quality of a hobo's unwashed anus, at least when viewed through the lens of a whale's vagina.

Re: Nando and Manny, that's just Nando's lack of maturity. The kids all of what - 24? If that? - they love each other like brothers and brothers fight from time to time. This epic implosion is unfamiliar territory to Nando and other youngbloods, and I'm sure it taste's like shit to everybody on that roster. I honestly feel bad for those guys.

Me on the other hand, well, as a SD fan, I just shrug. We've come to expect things like global pandemics and the like to f*ck with our mojo. :shrug:

You need Bruce Bochy to come back

Sounds like I’d like your wife! The 60s were a hell of a time in the rivalry. Giants had an incredible collection of talent, but Koufax, Drysdale and the rest of that crew always did one better, with the exception of ‘62.

You have to love the harshness of the old system. You won 95 games? Good job, enjoy your offseason and participation trophy. Oh wait it’s the 60’s, we don’t have those.

I will always have a broner for Boch. He actually still maintains a house in our "neighborhood." My wife used to see him at her gym during the offseason.

I had a Game 5 ticket in 1998... paid a shitton of money for it - about five rows behind home plate. I was giving a final at State during Game 4 and had brought in one of those little tailgate TVs to watch the game. I honestly think I f*cked up a couple dozen finals that evening while watching the game. :ph34r:

Nah.... KC fans and Bronco fans were good people and fun to party with before games and talk shit with during them.

You could create two silos - one for tolerable fans and one for intolerable fans. You might even have room for a 1-2 more in the latter once you fill it up with Steeler, Cowboy, Yankee, BoSox, and Dodger fans.

Damn... and I thought we had penis envy because the Dodgers have been there and done that.

Now thanks to your post I know what it's like to come from a cornfield in BFE where you have no dick at all. :shrug:

Isn't it more of an indictment of society than the media? THey run what gets them clicks/views/ratings and as HMHB said when bad things happen to pretty white girls, it sells. 

I agree that it is incredibly sad what happens on the reservations and to women of color more generally don't get the coverage of missing or murdered white girls but I see it more as the fault of society than turning it into some sort of cudgel against the media. 

The media has a big hand in how society thinks and takes advantage of its weaknesses.   Aparently you trust them and like what they give you.

I think you let the media control too much about what you think. I don't pay too close attention to any of it. I check different news sites throughout the day. Never watch news programs. I don't trust them but I do t believe they are some big bad trying to shape us. They are motivated by profit like most people. That means chasing the stories that get clicks.

I usually spend 2 hours a day just reading updates on this story. Not sure why but I’m Enthralled with this story. 
 

Harry and Megan are another couple I can’t get enough of.  Hopefully a murder doesn’t happen there. I would be devastated.
