Sports: Dodgers In October!!!

Its been a rocky year but they did it!

Weisman over at Dodger Thoughts has been my go to place for commentary beyond the box score.

He put it this way:

We celebrate the hit, even though we're rooting for the run. We celebrate the run, even though we're rooting for the win.

And today, at 2:32 p.m., we celebrate the division title, even though we're rooting for the bigger prize.

Congratulations, Dodgers and Dodger fans. Being the best in anything over 162 games is no easy road. Live it up!

Its been an incredible year from the special exhibition at the Coliseum, to the moving "Field of Dreams" opening day ceremony, the highs and lows of a long season with injuries and surprise stars, dramatic late season trades and the exciting and strong finish by a team that is coming together.

Go Dodgers!

Go Dodgers! Who'd have thought it would be like this when we we 4 1/2 out and had just dropped a game to the D'backs? What a September they put together! I hope they can carry the momentum into the postseason - this only winning one playoff game in 20 years thing has got to end.

But like you said - for now, its just good to be the division champs!
