With a rollercoaster ride of the past two seasons, Angelenos are praying for not just another season that comes agonizingly close to the World Series but to win it all. Yes, it’s too early to make lofty predictions but after too much anticipation and disappointment at Dodger Stadium, and the loss at this year’s Superbowl on top of that, LA could really use a win and hopefully this year is THE YEAR!! LA bleeds blue for the Dodgers!! Go DODGERS!!
