Over at ESPN’s SportsNation, they’re letting people vote on what they think the World Series matchup will be, and it’s overwhelmingly in favor of Yankees/Dodgers – no surprise there.
But there’s more to see than just that…
1) What the hell is going on in North Dakota? Lots of Angel fans up there? Particular ire for the Yankees?
2) Down in the bottom right, you can see that Yankees/Dodgers (symbolized in green, of course, because of the massive amounts of cash this series would make MLB and their TV networks) is also winning in the international poll… which, judging by that map, was taken with whales, sharks, and the other denizens of the world’s oceans.
3) At right, it’s good to see the hometown fans are showing faith in the Angels. Hey, Anaheimers (-ites?): you’ve been outdone by North Dakota. It’s not often I say this, but I am absolutely pulling for the Yankees to win the ALCS. Screw the Angels.
