The World Series is currently underway between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Boston Red Sox. In this battle of coast vs. coast, it’s easy to forget that Dodgers fans may have a bit of an edge when it comes to watching the games -- LA is always three hours behind Boston.
So, when Boston fans post up at their favorite sports bar at 8 p.m. to watch some good baseball, southern Californians are just sitting down to dinner. Likewise, when an 18-inning World Series game lasts over seven hours, it really tests the limits of hardo Bostonians.
Twas the case last night during Game 3, which made history as the longest World Series game ever. The Dodgers came out victorious with a 3-2 win over the Sox -- a disappointing turnout for the fans who stayed up until around 3 a.m. East Coast time to watch the end.
The game was long enough to fly to Los Angeles from Boston.
But for the rest of us who don’t watch baseball until it really matters (aka me, who you won’t really see sporting a cap until it’s a do-or-die game, sorry ‘bout it), it’s been a morning of good old-fashioned pointing and laughing at those that held on until the bottom of the 18th.
Some fans were thinking of the people actually in the stadium.
Others started questioning their loyalty as fans.
And then there were those that just had a good laugh at the absurdity of the whole thing.
Meanwhile, the rest of us were snug in our beds. Call me when it’s Game 7!
