New York Relishes The Dodgers' New Duds

I never thought that the Dodgers' throwback uniform promotion was concocted in order to mollify Brooklyn Dodger fans who still lament the team's departure to the West Coast. But haters will always find a way to piss on a great idea, says the New York Daily News, in "LA Dodgers try to make amends with throwback uniforms, but there's no love lost in Brooklyn":

Throwing a bone to the borough it abandoned 54 years ago, the Los Angeles Dodgers plan to wear uniforms harkening back to the Ebbets Field days for six games this season.

But instead of rekindling love in Brooklyn, some old-timers, still heartbroken over the team's 1957 move to the West Coast, said nostalgia-smalgia!

"Are they nuts?" asked Nick Fiore, 81, of Brooklyn, a member of the Dodgers' Symphony that used play at Ebbets Field.

"So they're going to be the Los Angeles-Brooklyn Dodgers?" Fiore asked mockingly. "These days, anything will happen."

Fiore then went out and punched a Salvation Army bell-ringer for being too noisy.

Slow news day in NY.

Give it a week and F-Rod will slap his Father-in-Law-To-Be around some more and send the NYC media all a-twitter again. Ahhh, good ol' F-Rod...
