This just in.... LA is a piece of #$!&@ city/fan base.

yeh, they are notoriously disinterested. Whitey used to bash their fans a lot about showing up to games late and leaving early.

Recognizing that I'm becoming a crotechedly old guy but I kinda thought Correa proposing to his girlfriend in front of the cameras in the middle of the WS celebration was a jackhole move. You and your teammates just won the first world series for Houston ever and now literally half of the mainstream (i.e. not sports channel) news coverage of last night is now on your proposal. Seems selfish to me.

Did not really think LA fans were disinterested or disengaged in this series, at least from TV. They seemed plenty loud to me, particularly in Game 6.

He was just closing the deal. A lot of pressure on that young lady to say yes at the moment. :spam:

Biggest loser in this run was Ken Giles, he even picked out a tee shirt for the celebration. It featured the F-bomb assuring he would not get on TV. He still get paid, the jewelry, and the title WS Champ.

As for my comment, I didn't see the game. I was just talking about their reputation.

Don't make excuses for them!!

We all know CA is a den of socialism and liberal sloth. Nobody has jobs. They are all on public assistance and have no excuse for being late

Yeah I asked a friend who moved from Philly area to LA last night about this kind of thing actually. He said the get there in the 3rd, leave in the 7th mentality doesn't have much to do with the atmosphere or game, it's about the traffic.

I thought they were way more into it than their reputation would indicate. Keep in mind, a lot of the crowd noise can be because of different miking and Houston's stadium is still partially enclosed, even with the roof open.
Which part? And who are you?
