Yesterday the National League Championship Series began. The Philadelphia Phillies beat the Dodgers in Game 1 on the Dodgers home turf. Although I live in Los Angeles, as an Angel fan it didn't break my heart. I know lots of folks here in L.A. want a freeway series, but a bi-coastal World Series usually attracts a larger viewing audience. So I'd prefer an Angels/Phillies series to an Angels/Dodgers one. On the other hand, the Angels have beaten the Dodgers in interleague play with remarkable consistency over the last decade.
Today we get Game 2 of the NLCS early in the day followed by Game 1 of the American League Championship Series in the evening. In that series the Angels will be taking on the New York Yankees in the new Yankee Stadium. Go Angels!!!
