    Dodgers Fandom: The Casual and The Passionate

    My parents couldn’t name 3 current Dodgers right now for a billion dollars.  Couldn’t tell you who owns them, no clue who manages them, and there is NO WAY they know where they sit in the standings, etc.  That’s ok, they’re human.

    I remember Steve Sax, Steve Garvey, Orel Hershiser and Davey Lopes wearing Dodger blue.  Fernando Valenzuela rolling his eyes right before he pitches; Jerry Reuss and his epic ‘stache, Mike Scioscia and his flawless fundamentals behind home plate.  Reggie Smith and his afro falling out of his helmet, and Tommy Lasorda bumbling towards home plate […] More
