 Who are you watching, and why?
posted 8 years ago

We watch the Dodgers vs. Phillies at Citizens Bank Park and the Red Sox vs. Rays at Tropicana Field if we are fortunate enough to find a ticket. We watch the National League Championship Series on FOX and the American League Championship Series on TBS.We watch, inning after inning, as our emotions are carried high and low until finally there is a coronation in a World Series celebration. Our forebears did the same thing in 1954, watching Willie make "The Catch" off Vic Wertz's bat at the old Polo Grounds, as the Giants shockingly swept the Indians. TV was new then, reaching further and then further still, and today that reach knows no boundaries. Dodgers fans are rooting for Manny Ramirez, and there are a lot of Red Sox fans who have a keen interest in how he, Derek Lowe and Nomar Garciaparra fare in that "other" series. A lot of people in Southern California also will have special interest in a guy on the opposition: Phillies second baseman Chase Utley, who was a shortstop known to many as just a classmate at Long Beach (Calif.) Poly High and then UCLA. He became a first-round pick and eventually a top overall vote-getter for the 2008 All-Star Game. Some people root for faces. Some people root for places.
