Do not read if your brain explodes at incredibly bad writing.

I know it's long and I don't blame you if you don't read it all.

Did you ever see "Mars Attacks?" This article is the yodeling to my Martian brain.

From a waste of bandwidth called baseballtvschedule.net

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, as they are officially known as, are a baseball team in the Western Division of the American League in the MLB. The Los Angeles Angels were first formed together in 1961, in the current city they are in. Throughout the years, the team did experiment with the team name which became final in 2005, when the called themselves the Los Angeles Angels. One of the very first stadiums in the baseball industry was the Wrigley Field. The LA Angels played the Wrigley Field before moving into the Angel Stadium of Anaheim. The team players are easily spotted on the field, in their dark red uniform with Angels written across.

In 2002, the Los Angeles Angels won the World Series against the San Francisco Giants. It was there only World Series win and Pennant in their time at the MLB. From 1979 to 20011, the Los Angeles Angels won eight Western division titles, which is considered to be a good record. Most teams in the league have won just as much in longer periods. The ownership of the team was moved around frequently in the early years of the team, which resulted in many administrative issues for the team. However, today, things seem to have gotten in the right track for the Los Angeles Angels.

The 2012 Los Angeles Angels schedule indicates that the first game of the season will be played against the Los Angeles Dodgers as part of an exhibition game. There have been issues between the Angels and the Dodgers in the past, and it makes this one of the top games for people to see at the start. The spring training session will not really give us much of an indication of how things will work out, but it should be interesting to see how the new players perform. Not only does the team have rivalries but the fans do as well. Some of the top rivalry teams for the Angels include, the Dodgers, Yankees, Mariners and Rangers.

The Angel Stadium of Anaheim is a baseball field which was a football field for the St Louis Rams. The stadium was built in 1966, but it only went through modern renovations in 1998. The renovation that lasted between 1997 and 1999 ranked up costs to one hundred million dollars, which produced a very modern ballpark for the Anaheim district. The seating capacity at the stadium is about forty-five thousand with a couple hundred more spots for standing. If you havenít checked out the 2012 Los Angeles Angels schedule, you should probably do so, to see the upcoming games and opponents.


Here are a few comments.

1. The Angels' standard uniform is white, not red. A few times a month, they wear red jerseys.

2. For the first thirty years of the franchise, the Halos had one majority owner: Gene Autry.

3. The third paragraph is hilarious.

4. The St. Louis Rams never played in Anaheim.

5. On edit: Oh, yeah, they got Wrigley Field right, but the Halos didn't play in the Wrigley Field that was one of "the very first stadiums in the baseball industry."

Disclaimer: I am a grammar nazi and a thoroughly biased Angels' fan.

Maybe that explains the train wreck you posted. At least I hope so!

8. Hahahaha Yeah, I saw that.

As much as I loathe the team name, I think it's cool that my team has brought the attention of our time's preeminent physicist.
