In response to Duke4's comment:
Dirty, you have a point there....just for fun, here is a short comparison of the three major sports (baseball, football, and basketball) and the success of the franchises in both cities..
Baseball....Los Angeles has the Dodgers (1958) and the Angels (1961).....in 107 combined seasons the teams have combined to win 6 chapionships....since 1958 the Red Sox have won twice in 55 seasons...
Football.....the Rams played in LA from 1946 to 1994...in those 49 years the Rams won 1 title (1951)....the Raiders played in LA for 13 years, winning once.....so in 62 years, LA teams have won 2 championships...the Pats joined the new AFL in 1960...in the 52 years since, the Patriots have won 3 championships...
Basketball....the Lakers moved to LA in 1960...in 52 years they have won 11 titles.....the Clippers move to LA in 1985...in 28 years they have yet to win a title....so in 70 combined seasons, LA teams have won 11 championships....since winning their first championship in 1957, the Celtics have won 17 championships in 56 years...
LA has 19 titles (in 249 combined seasons)....Boston has 22 titles (in 163 combined seasons)
I believe these figures are accurate....and for those who are not aware....Foxborough and Aneheim are about the same distance from Boston an Los Angeles
Actually, Foxboro is probably closer to Boston than Anaheim is to LA.
It IS, trust me....................made both trips many times!!!
