|Here you go, Sunnyblue!
We're only four days into the 2019 baseball season, and the bitter rivals of the NL West--the California Civil War--are meeting for the first of 19 times this season, tonight at Dodger Stadium.
This marks the 130th season of this great rivalry, the longest-running in all of baseball, and the most evenly-fought with such bitter intensity. Whether facing each other on the East Coast, or on the West Coast, no love is lost between these teams and their fans. It wasn't but ten years ago that the J-I-N-T-S trailed the Dodgers in number of championships (six to five), but they now lead eight to six. It wasn't but ten years ago that San Francisco's record was 0-for-world championships.
But things have changed now, and still, I'll toast to this great rivalry that's given baseball so many great moments, and hope that it continues to do so. Let's just make sure they are all in the Dodgers' favor!
Take down the Battery-Chucking, Water-Hoarding, Obnoxious Orange Caltrans crew!
