Dodger fans?

As a recent transplant to Los Angeles, I have been surprised by Dodgers' fans. On one hand, they adhere perfectly to their "arrive late, leave early" reputation. (I still remember the tail lights of the car leaving the stadium lots as the camera pans up to follow Kirk Gibson's World Series HR ball in 1988).

But they are very knowledgeable on average -- and more enthusiastic than I would have expected. In a town of LA's size, its sometimes easy to be blase' about your team. Just look at Lakers' fans. Or Mets' fans.

Still, if you sit in the upper deck, you'll see some rough -- less sports-appropriate -- stuff.

Take note of this blog posting by a new Angeleno. Anyone agree with his take?
