The 2013 NLCS is certainly a Tale of Two Cities. The Cardinals proudly present themselves as a small-town club that does everything the “right way” -- thriving via fundamental ball, top-notch scouting, steady player development and the support of a devoted, knowledgeable fan-base. Meanwhile, the Dodgers are perceived as a reality sideshow from the land of make-believe spending a billion-dollar bankroll to buy a title for disinterested star-studded crowds.
Say what you will about the Boys In Blue…they’re entertaining! Yasiel Puig plays with reckless abandon that concerns old-timers, the team celebrated its division title in the D-Back pool (much to Arizona’s chagrin), and when the squad displayed excitement during a rally against the Cards, Missouri farmers shook their heads and Adam Wainwright labeled the antics “Mickey Mouse stuff.”
Yet the Dodgers just had fun with it.
Adrián González noted that LA is the home of Disneyland, so Mickey Mouse behavior was natural at Chavez Ravine…and when he subsequently homered in Game 5, he mimed a pair of giant ears as he circled the bases!This fun new design completes the illusion, depicting A-Gon like a full-on Mousketeer – an adorable rodent with bushy eyebrows, a goutee and a blue cap. He’s not from Disneyland, he’s from Dodgerland (an original, satirical fictitious locale obviously affiliated with neither the entertainment conglomerate or the ballclub).
Show your love for this team’s winning ways and sense of humor as they look to bring some Tinsletown charm to the stuffy environs of the Gateway Arch.
