The Los Angeles Dodgers will take on the New York Mets in the first round of the playoffs starting Friday. While we believe the numbers speak for themselves (the Dodgers are first in National League's Western Division with a 92-70 record, while the Mets are first in the Eastern Division with 90 wins and 72 losses), just to hammer home the fact that Dodger blue is the color to sport, here's 10 reasons why Dodgers fans are better.
10. While New Yorkers have to choose between the Mets or the Yankees, our loyalty isn't split because we are the only team in LA (sorry Anaheim Angels).
9. Dodger fans shine brighter—no really, we really do thanks to living in Los Angeles, where the sun is always in the forecast, giving us a nice sunkissed glow.
8. We walk the walk and talk the talk: Dodgers had the best home attendance with 3.76 million people showing up this season. And this isn't a bandwagon thing either, it's the third year they've led in MLB attendance, according to the LA Times.
7. Dodger fans are less stressed because we don't have to hoof it to Queens for a game. Really, Queens?
6. We have Magic (Johnson) on our side.
5. Dodger fans have bigger weiners—the foot-long Dodger Dog, of course.
4. Our blue is better than whatever you call that Mets blue—which is itself a half-assed homage to Dodger blue.
3. The Dodgers used to be the Brooklyn Dodgers; so, let's be real, there's probably more Dodger fans in New York than Mets fans.
2. Dodger fans are true baseball fans who only need a good ol' hot dog to be happy at a game, unlike Mets fans with their Shake Shake and Catch of the Day nonsense.
1. Dodger fans are more knowledgable and have deeper insight into the the game thanks to Dodgers announcer Vin Scully, who broke the Guinness World Record for having the longest career as a sports broadcaster for a single team.
Wait, do the Mets even have fans?
