Can't Stomach Another East Coast World Series

As a born and raised Dodger hater (I consider Steve Garvey a Padre), I'm conflicted as the inevitable seems to be unfolding in the ALCS.  It seems the Dodgers are the only real hope of not having another East Coast World Series, but that hope is dwindling.  Sorry Angels, I'm throwing in the towel.<br /><br />I love baseball, but if the World Series bounces back and forth between New York and Philly, I will watch no more than one game of it.  I'm just not interested.  Perhaps it has something to do with the environment of the game in the East.  But that's a subject for a later post.  Baseball is territorial in nature, in a different way from football.  The baseball season is so long and exhausting that unless you have a dog in the fight, you're not that interested in that last fight.  If the West is unrepresented in the World Series, my guess is that much of the West will tune-out.
