This single blog post explains more about the Dodgers (and Lakers) fan mentality than anything else I've ever read.

Key insight: "Guggenheim is good for Los Angeles. You don’t have to understand, but we’d rather have a Lakers team with stars struggling than a scrappy team. That’s the city. Better or worse. That’s us."

Yes, ANGELS are *not* LA.  :-)

That explains a lot, Greg.

I wonder if Joyce's article explains why pro football doesn't seem to work in LA, too.

The best pro football teams are team-first. Star mentality doesn't play well.

Then again, I can make the counter-argument that Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, and even Aaron Rodgers are stars. And that would seem to work well in LA.
