    To think when this board first started we were talking about guys like James Loney and Chad Billingsley and the height of Mannywood and all that happened between now and then. The team getting sold, trading for Hanley Ramirez, the rise of Puig.

    Just keep shaking my head in disbelief, what a year

    I’m happy for my wife. She grew up a huge Doyers fan because of her dad. Me as a Angeleno obviously it’s cool to see city love the city I live in win two championships in the same year. Also fireworks are going off right now. What do you guys think is bigger? This one or the Lakers?

    Man, I don’t know what to do with my hands. It all started sitting in the outfield pavilion starting at 5 years old. Yelling at Barry Bonds. Pregaming at Philippe’s. Singing I Love LA. Watching Hee Sop Choi hit 3rd. Getting to pitch at Dodger stadium in HS. Getting heartbroken by Matt Stairs. Hating the Cardinals. And the Giants. Seeing the Wild Horse in right run wild. Hating the Astros. Getting so so close in 17/18. And now, in a crazy ass year, finally taking care of business. What a team. What a year. What a TMB fanbase :blush:

    this one is probably bigger because of 1988 and all the recent heartbreak, I'm 34 and I had to hear about 1988 over and over again. Meanwhile in that time span I've seen a ton of Lakers titles (thank you Kobe #RIP)

    not that it matters. Nothing more than a question but do you have a connection to LA or are you just a fan? How did you become a Doyer fan? I ask this with the acknowledgment that you’re a bigger fan than I am so I am not trying to be a dick.

    My dad has been a dodger fan his entire life. Had a dodger teddy bear at age 3. Have just always loved the team. My buffalo fandom comes from where my mom grew up. I obvi went to UT and I live in Denver now.


    When I grew up in Nashville, pro sports teams didn’t show up until after I already chose my fandom.

    FUCK YES!!!! FUCK YES !!!! FUCK YES!!!! Was three in 88 so this is really the first for me. Mike Piazza was my fucking hero growing up. Feels so good to be really happy in this fucked year. Lakers made me happy but the wait makes this so much better. Bourbon is flowing! I love LA!!!! Fuck Trump!!

    I'd been a Dodgers fan since 1977, screamed for joy when Bob Welch struck out Reggie in game 2 in 1978, grew up in Giants country, was at Candlestick in 1982 when Rick Monday hit a grand slam and Giants fans responded by throwing burning Dodgers jackets from the upper deck, hated Joe Morgan for his home run two days later, hated Jack Clark for his dinger off Niedenfuer, etc. Kept handwritten tallies of Dodgers stats as a freshman at Cal because there was no internets and if I wanted to know how many BBs Pedro Guerrero had I could find it in my sheets.

    Sophomore year (1988) had some friends who got me going to A's games, and my GF really got into them, idolizing Bob Welch most of all. Fun team to watch, easy stadium to get to from Berkeley, and bleacher tickets cost $3. October rolls around and scrappy Dodgers play the Mets in NLCS, I figure they have no chance because the Mets were 10-1 against them in the regular season, so I don't have to choose between my sentimental childhood team and the team I've been following pretty closely all year (and my GF looooooves). Game 4 Scioscia comes up against Gooden, I say it's not like he's going to hit a HR because all he's got is warning track power, and the pudgy fucker hits a bomb. I decide then and there (BOOM, EPIPHANY) that if the Dodgers make it to the WS I'm rooting for them instead of the A's, it's their year, the A's will be back because they're a budding dynasty. GF didn't/couldn't understand. She took the Gibson HR hard, and my ecstasy didn't help things. Didn't realize it at the time, and it took a few months to come to fruition, but looking back it was the beginning of the end for us.

    I’m 47, was a baby that was brought to games at the stadium when it was an affordable night out for working class families. Love the team, love the game. Pretty obvious based on my history in this thread. This season was a bright spot in a year that saw me bury my mom and take a leave of absence to nurse my dad back from a quadruple stent implant. He’s happy tonight. An added bonus, my wife and I are celebrating our 2nd anniversary. 10/27 works for me.

    We had to evacuate our home here thanks to the Bobcat Fire and spent a full month away bc the smoke in the air was too dangerous. My grandpa just fell and fractured his hip 10 days ago and is in a convalescent hospital with no visitors allowed. All I can do is call him and tell him to have the nurse turn the channel to 11 at 5 PM to watch the game. This year started out with the ultimate gut punch with Kobe and has been setback after setback but this will always be a special memory. Glad your dad got to enjoy this and RIP to your mother.

    Hey congrats, ya'll! Great series, and the best team won.

    As a huge baseball fan, I still feel robbed of this season, but hey at least it was something. Spring training can't get here fast enough...
