Young Dodgers Fan Delivers Impassioned Speech

Do you want to hear the voice of a true fan who doesn’t back down and defends his team even amidst the crushing weight of enormous peer pressure? Well, then just listen to this clip of Casey, a Bay-area 5th grader who’s talking to his graduating class, and take away a lesson in loyalty. Sitting in the basement of the NL West and coming into a season where the Giants have won two of the last three World Series, it’s not easy being a Dodgers fan right now, but that doesn’t stop him from declaring his love for the Boys in Blue in front of the whole school.

Way to go, Casey. Come down to Dodger Stadium and your first Dodger Dog is on me.
