ANAHEIM, CA — In a time when thousands of attractions are fleeing the state of California (here, here, here, here, and here), one team dares to be different. The
Anaheim Los Angeles [english: “The Angels”] Angels of Anaheim have announced that they will NOT be leaving the state of California.
In a press conference yesterday, a spokesperson for The The Angels Angels confirmed the decision.
The spokesperson, who identified himself as “Head Angel Al” (and who looks suspiciously like Christopher Lloyd), admitted, “We thought about moving, but then decided not to. I mean, really, in the long run, it doesn’t matter. Nobody really pays attention to us anyways. It would’ve been a good publicity stunt, but the publicity would only last for a few minutes, so why bother?”
Uncle Walt’s Insider quickly polled ten people who call themselves Angels fans. [Ed.: Ten people may seem like a very small sample size, but in this case, it’s actually about 88% of the total number of Angels fans.]
Of the responses, one said that they were happy the team is sticking around, eight claimed that they didn’t even know that the team was still in Anaheim, and one said that we had a wrong number.
