My move took me from Angels country to right in the heart of Dodgers country. Obviously as a Giants fan it is a challenge hearing all the Dodger news and seeing all the Dodger gear with the season they are having. With the exception of some bloggers I have met and a few hard core fans, fans in LA tend to be of the fair weather variety - this includes fans of my beloved USC Trojans as well. This irritates me as well.
However, in what is kind of a surprise to me, seeing Brian Wilson in that 00 Dodgers uniform and pitching well really has thrown me for a loop. It just seems wrong as I have so many fond Giants memories. I remember him closing out the 2010 World Series, I was able to attend the All Star game when he came out in bright orange shoes and I remember his signature beard growing longer and bushier and more out of control.
I picked up this card shortly before he signed with the Dodgers:
I am certain that I won't be going after any of his Dodgers cards and for right now I don't think I will be seeking out any older Giants cards for the time being. I still need some more time to get over it.
