Video: Magic Johnson gleefully reacts to highlight of Dodgers game

Magic Johnson, Lakers

Thursday night is an exciting night for sports fans in the City of Angels. Their two NBA teams, the Los Angeles Lakers and L.A. Clippers, played their season opener against each other, while the Dodgers of the MLB were also in action on the night, as they played the fifth game of their NLCS series against the Chicago Cubs.

Before the start of the game inside Staples Center, Lakers president Magic Johnson, was seen watching the baseball game from the tunnel, and was gleefully cheering when he found out that the Dodgers won, and will advance to the World Series.

The Dodgers dominated the match, and won in convincing fashion, 11-1. They will now compete in the world series for the first time since 1988, ending a nearly 30-year drought. Despite his stature, Magic Johnson also showed that he is just like any fan of other Los Angeles pro teams, and is happy for the city as well.

With the promise that the new-look Lakers have, coupled with the success the Dodgers are now enjoying, it is truly a great time to be an L.A. sports fan.
