It's not just the Brewers and Dodgers who have interesting and fun points of comparison in the National League Championship Series. It's the cities that call these teams home. Scroll through to see them.
Size of market
- Los Angeles: 18.7 million

The four seasons:
- L.A.: You can experience them in two hours, but you have to drive from the mountains to the beach.
- Milwaukee: You can experience them in 10 minutes and you don't have to leave your lawn chair.
- Milwaukee: Snow
- Los Angeles: Smog
- Los Angeles: Ranked most stressful by Robert Half
- Milwaukee: So relatively unstressful, Robert Half didn't even study it
- Miller Park: The best in baseball.
- Dodger Stadium: Not allowed. Risk of wildfires.
- Milwaukee: Miller Park Bratwurst. Especially with Secret Stadium Sauce.
- Los Angeles: Dodger Dogs. They're good...but it's just not a Miller Park brat.
- Brewers: WTMJ's own Bob Uecker
- Dodgers: Vin Scully (now retired)
- Brewers: Kato Kaelin...and he lives in L.A.
- Dodgers: The list goes on...and on...and on...
Noteworthy locally-owned eateries:
- Los Angeles: In 'n Out Burger (but no frozen custard)
- Milwaukee: Kopp's & Leon's (the world's best frozen custard)
Plus, had the Braves never moved from Boston to Milwaukee in 1953, the Dodgers might not have ever thought of moving from Brooklyn to Los Angeles in 1958. You're welcome, Southern California.
