I grew up rooting for the Dodgers. In fact, I cried like a baby when they got spanked by Charlie Finley's Oakland A's in the 1974 World Series. In retrospect, I'm glad Oakland won. They were a much cooler team and that marked the end of the last true dynasty in major league baseball. Unfortunately, Finley had no money to pay anybody because that amazing team couldn't draw flies to the Oakland Mausoleum.
I think I stopped being a Dodger fan shortly after I saw them beat the Yankees in the World Series in 1981. A lot of factors contributed to this decision, but I was happy for them when they upset Oakland in the 1989 World Series. I can understand how the Dodger organization rubs people the wrong way . They definitely see themselves as above everyone else and tireless self promoters like Tommy Lasorda become tiresome after awhile. I probably went to about 200 games at Chavez Ravine and Dodger fans have got to be about as bad as it gets. Most of the true fans are sitting in the bleachers or the nosebleeds.
I have no team affiliation anymore. All I care about is winning money on fantasy baseball. I guess I've become a pretty big Mark Prior fan, which, technically, makes me a Cubs fan, at least every fifth day. That's pretty depressing.
