The west coast. Known for its sunny beaches, coffee shops, and snowy mountains. Known for the innovators that brought the public American cinema, the Egg McMuffin, and Apple Inc. Known as a place that people from around the globe flock to.
The west coast is also known for its rich sports history: the Showtime Lakers, John Wooden, USC’s dominance on the gridiron, Kirk Gibson’s leg, and Jerry Rice, the greatest football player ever to step on the field.
The west coast also has a lot more to offer to people who live west of the Mississippi. It lured Marshall Faulk out of Louisiana where he became a standout at San Diego State, finishing second in the 1992 Heisman race. It continuously opens up the New Year by showcasing the Rose Bowl. It houses 48 NFL Hall of Famers and eight Lombardi Trophies.
More recently, it has produced NBA Champions, countless NFL players and a multitude of brightly colored Oregon uniforms.
But lastly, the west coast faces a strong bias from east coast media members, writers, and fans.
There are the rumors about journalists, coaches, and pollsters getting to bed before the west coast games even kick/tipoff. There is the overhype that comes when a Boston team plays a New York team or when a southern team plays another southern team. There are supposed “Leaders” and “Legends” who attract the crowds up north. And while the state of Florida cannot fill a 30,000 seat stadium, the west coast plays on unnoticed.
