The Angels Win the 2002 WORLD SERIES!

Well, they did it. They went all the way. This is unbelievable. I still remember watching the first Angels game of the season on ESPN last March – a loss to Cleveland. And then the losses kept coming…6-14, the worst start in franchise history. Here we go again, another typical Angels season, I thought. I never dreamed that they would be crowned World Series champions in October. Baseball, ya gotta love it.

I think I’m going to go broke spending all my money on WS Champions stuff…ah, wonderful. Too bad this wonderful season had to end, but at least now I can get back to all that school work ;)

Maybe I’ll write more about this…I’m just so happy right now but I have so much work to do. I can’t wait till opening day. (Oh my God I feel like a damn LiveJournal user!)

“It’s designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything is new again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops, and leaves you to face the fall alone.” – A. Bartlett Giamatti, Commissioner of Baseball, 1989

NorCal vs. SoCal

The Angels will be playing the San Francisco Giants in the Fall Classic, making it an all California, all wild card series. Personally I wanted the Cardinals to win the NLCS because a) they’ve had a rough year. b) I’d like to see Cardinals Jim Edmonds and Chuck Finley play their former teammates. c) I don’t like Barry Bonds.

It was annoying enough when Fox Sports West would cut away from the Angels games to show Barry Bonds batting, but now we’ll be treated to a Bonds love fest where the FOX sports announcers will gush over the smallest details of his life.

The Anaheim Angels – Your 2002 American League Champions

The Anaheim Angels beat the Minnesota Twins to take the American League Pennant. For the first time in franchise history, the Angels will be playing in the World Series! CONGRATS ANGELS!!!

“This is the word-of-mouth hit of the fall. And it’s playing to an appreciative house. The thunder from the stands may not have affected the Yankees – at least, they all said it didn’t – but they could not have failed to notice it.

They have played here before, but not under these conditions. Except for the times tee-shirts were being air-gunned into the stands, this place used to be so quiet you could hear a pop-up drop.

Now, you can’t even hear a dynasty drop.”

I think one of the most memorable moments of the 2002 post season was BEATING THE YANKEES! There are so many annoying Yankee fans here that it was sweet to see them bitch about their team. Of course, they always have the annoying reply “Well, we won 26 World Series titles, so haha.” Yeah, whatever…and you were there for all 26 of those wins, weren’t you? As if New York fans weren’t bad enough (and no offense to my comrades that are Mets fans – I don’t mean you) what is even more annoying are the Yanks fans that aren’t even from NY (and this is especially directed to all you bandwagoners wearing your NY caps at the Big A). Get some hometown pride, people! Don’t support the Yanks just because they are “winners”…support your home team!!!!

I bet George Steinbrenner will be looking for the perfect players to put in pinstripes. Attention George and annoying Yanks fans: You already have 26 WS rings…don’t be so greedy!! You are ruining the great game of baseball!
