It’s true. We all wish the Angels’ 2014 postseason was filled with more champagne showers and more days for it to be socially acceptable to rock a fake Shoemaker beard in public. However, there’s no reason why we all can’t have a little fun and show our Angels spirit!
We’re starting a new tradition: The Angels Fan Favorites Awards! These fan choice awards will highlight the finest achievements and whims that contributed to the exciting season for your 2014 American League West Division Champions. Be prepared to tackle decisions on your Fan Favorite Rookie and Most Outstanding Pitcher. Some eccentric categories like Best Walk-up Song and Best New Food Item at The Big A will also be up for discussion!
There will be 3 rounds of polls. The first round of categories will be released next Tuesday, October 21st. Check back with us HERE on The Halo Way that day to begin voting. Use the hashtag #AngelsFanFavs whenever you post about the awards on Twitter… there might be something special in store for those participants that do!
While we finish gathering the nominees, let us know if there’s a certain Angels-related category that you wish to see in the awards (Comment below with your ideas). Remember, the voting will be in your hands.
Dear Angel Fans, here is Game 3 of the ALDS in Kansas City on Sunday and the trip home early Monday morning through the eyes of team photographer Matt Brown and myself. Thank you fans for following and supporting this blog and our boys, we truly appreciate it.
See you in Tempe…
Los Angeles Angels

Tis the season to be RED… it’s time to lay those blues and greens to rest and break out the color that screams ANGELS!
So what do we mean when we say #GetOctobeRED?
As the Angels vie for the ultimate prize this October, it is the fans’ duty to flaunt their RED from head to toe. Whether it be representing the Angels fish family (Trout or Salmon) with your prized jersey, continuing to design many more creative signs to wave around the ballpark or whipping out that big, RED, sparkly wig you were saving for a special occasion. Everything must be bigger and better!
Get your head in the game and help your friends and family brush up on their Angels history or relive the past events of the 2014 season to pump up the excitement. Get loud and make Angel Stadium shake with your thunderous cheers and chants. It’s time to go all out or nothing this October! If you’re superstitious, we do not discourage working in, sleeping in, eating in, kickboxing in, water skiing in, rock climbing in, interpretive dancing in (you get the picture) your Angels gear.
If you accept the task at hand, get in the spirit to support your Halos and #GetOctobeRED for our postseason journey!!
We’ll leave you with some examples:
Ahhh, the annual pastime of dressing up the Rookies for a flight!
