Love how Green stared at the dirt as if it had anything to do with the bounce. I do that with the ground when I almost fall.

Remember that time Kevin Towers traded David Freese for a month of Jim Edmonds? Nah, me neither.

Great series win. Anaheim makes a much better & more logical "natural rival" than Seattle.
