It looks like fans of the local ball club in my hometown of Orange County, the 2002 World Champion Angels, have been inspired by Korea's sea of red fans during the 2002 World Cup. Witness the "We are not L.A." t-shirt.
Protesting the Angels' new owner's idea of changing the name from Anaheim to Los Angeles to attract a wider television audience, despite the city of Anaheim being one of the anchor cities of 3,000,000-strong Orange County, Angels fans have been sitting in the stands with their bright red shirts letting Arte Moreno know that Orange County is not an offshoot of Los Angeles. Anaheim is miles from the Los Angeles County border, and probably a good hour's drive from the actual City of Los Angeles.
I have no hatred of Los Angeles, but OC is no more a part of L.A. than it is a part of San Diego. Period. It's dumb and we OC-ers are pissed.
Anyway, this post is just a shout-out to all my homies in the O.C. (which, prior to Fox's "the O.C.," was never referred to as the O.C.), home of the Anaheim Angels, the Anaheim Mighty Ducks, UC Irvine, Mission San Juan Capistrano (with its annual return of the swallows), South Coast Plaza, Dana Point, Laguna Beach, Disneyland, Richard Nixon's birthplace and museum, the beautiful but deadly Ortega Highway, some great beaches from Huntington Beach and Seal Beach to San Onofre, Little Saigon, and of course a very, very large Korean-American population.
