Of course not. How'd you feel when we won it all 3 of 5 years?

In truth, I love watching Kershaw pitch (took him 1st in Fantasy and won my league).

And I hope the PIB beat St. Louis because I have even more haterade for them.

Also, I do hope St. Louis loses... Because the Dodgers have a terrible postseason record against them.

I lived in SoCal for 10 years before moving to the Bay Area for ten more.

Since you lived down here, you surely get that like most LA-SF rivalries it is felt much more keenly by the Bay Area folks. Growing up as an avid Dodgers fan in LA, my attitude was essentially, "eh, the Giants are a California team so I'll pull for them if the Dodgers aren't in it." Same re the 49ers.
Only after moving to the Bay Area for seven years and getting exposed to the shrillness of the local fans (A's fans and Warriors fans excepted) did I start rooting against those teams.

The demographics are interesting too. I experienced that people in SF looked down on LA for being, well...LA, and on New York because it was so much bigger and (supposedly) without the natural beauty.

I found it amusing because I like both metro areas, especially being originally from WI.

As a person who has been to San Francisco and lived in NY I feel comfortable in saying that NY is about 500% better than SF. Conservatively.

"Been to" doesn't count as lived.

Hey, how about those chok- er-Yankees? Think they'll make the playoffs?

And for my Dodger friends...Go Mets!

i'm secretly hoping jake arrieta goes nuts and pulls a bumgarner against the cardinals so the dodgers can catch a break...
