To be clear, this is the second championship in three weeks!
One fan told us, “I am proud of the Lakers and I said ‘get ready because the Dodgers are next’ and look at what happened.”
Another said, “I’m just overcome with emotion. 2020 has been a rough year and now with sports going on it’s a platform to come together.”
It’s been 32 years since the Dodgers won a World Series. Happened in 1988. Fans did the math. One told us, “I was 21 years old.”
Said another, “I was one-and-a-half when Showtime and the Dodgers won."
Said a third, proudly, “I’m 32 years old. The last time they did this I was being born!”
All these people think there should be a victory celebration for the Dodgers and the Lakers.
They’d love a parade. But, given COVID-19 they know that won’t work, But, one fan had a pretty good idea.
She said, “It would be hard but I say do it at the Dodger Stadium since it’s outside.
Maybe have both teams…Lakers and Dodgers at the Dodger Stadium outside and then social distance.”
