Los Angeles Sports

 

Kobe paint splatterNo one ever thinks of Los Angeles as a great sports city. It's always Pittsburgh with its Steeler fanatics, New York with its Yanks, Green Bay with its Packers and its Cheeseheads. We think it's because the true Los Angeles sports heros are everyday folks. Maybe it's the weather or the culture of physical fitness, but Angelenos are get-out-there-and-do-it people. Summer or winter (yes, we can tell the difference), Angelenos are jogging, biking, surfing, swimming, roller-skating, perfecting their Capoeira moves, playing beach volleyball and holding skateboarding competitions on every empty sidewalk.

 

That doesn't mean we don't love our Los Angeles sports pros: our Dodgers, Lakers, Kings, and Clippers (especially since dunkmaster Blake Griffin joined the team); as a matter of fact, every tennis elbow and 19,000th place finish in the L.A marathon reminds us of our own physical limitations and helps us to more deeply appreciate a stellar athletic performance when we see it. That makes for an intelligent sports fan and a great sports town.
