For the love of Anaheim, or Los Angeles?

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim put a whooping on the Minnesota Twins on Saturday night. Meanwhile, Manny still looks a bit rattled after it results of his positive steroid test in 2003 were released to the public on Thursday. One shouldn’t expect Manny to be affected by the results anyway. Shoots, it’s the third time he has tested positive for steroids anyway. If he were anybody else, would any of this even be in question right now? Apparently Dodgers fans don’t care what produces the results, as long as the results are “somewhat” true. Really though, should I be blaming Dodgers fans. After all, it’s the sorry Red Sox fans who will defend Manny until their day of reckoning. When it comes down to it, do you think the steroid accusations and pudding proof even matter to Red Sox fans? For all they care, the “Curse of the Bambino” was erased, and they finally were delivered a World Series title. Whether or not the facts of the matter were actually legit is another story. Thou shalt turn a blind eye if the outcome reflects positive on the bottom line. Really, just think about it. The team with whom I’m referencing is known as the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Anybody who is familiar with southern California knows just how ridiculous such a title and distinction really is! We are the Anaheim Angels who play in Orange County, located right off the I-57, but our owner Arturo Moreno feels we should appeal to the daddy of the city. Hence the Los Angeles in the name. Never mind that the Angels play a good 40 miles from L.A. When it comes to the money, common sense takes a backseat to the bottom line. If you can generate enough revenue, Moreno will designate you the Tijuana Angels. When push comes to shove, and all is said and done, it’s all about the hustle.
