Eric Stephen has been a fan of Los Angeles sports teams his entire life. Growing up in Palm Springs, his sports viewing options were the Dodgers, Angels, Lakers, Clippers, Raiders, Rams, USC, and UCLA, and he quickly gravitated toward the Dodgers, Lakers, Raiders, and USC. He graduated from UCSD with a degree in Economics, so naturally he decided to write about sports. He has co-managed the Dodger blog True Blue LA since 2008, and can be seen in the press box at Dodger Stadium whenever he has the time. He has also written for USA Today, The Hardball Times, and the 2010 Dodgers Annual for Maple Street Press. He was at Game 2 of the 1988 World Series, but not the Kirk Gibson game the night before because of a surprise birthday party for his sister. But don't worry, he's not bitter about it.
