No one sounded angered, insulted or offended.
Amused might be a better description, and mildly amused at that.
Fans of the San Francisco Giants are hoping to hire a plane to fly above Dodger Stadium on opening day. As the Dodgers and Giants play, the plane would tow a banner reminding everyone which team won the World Series last year.
"That would be pretty funny," Dodgers first baseman James Loney said Monday. "When I hear everybody start booing, it'll either be a fight or a plane."
If Giants fans thought their little aerial taunt might enrage the boys in blue, well, think again.
"That's good for our economy, right?" Dodgers Manager Don Mattingly said. "They're going to hire L.A. planes."
Dodgers outfielder Andre Ethier said he would not object to Giants fans touting their team's title in Dodger Stadium airspace.
"They have a right to boast," Ethier said. "They're the defending World Series champions. They had a great run.
"Starting from the first pitch, it's a new year, a new season. I'm pretty sure, if and when we do win a World Series, Dodger fans will be celebrating in some way."
