As hard as 2020 was, for fans of two L.A. sports teams, there was a silver lining — and there soon may be a third.

In basketball and baseball, LA teams gave us something to cheer about in this awful year.

The Lakers captured their first title since 2010, and the Dodgers finally won a championship after a 32-year-drought.

Then again, in perfect 2020 style, even those victories felt bittersweet; they were won away from L.A. The NBA set up a bubble in Orlando, the World Series was played in Texas — and we have yet to have a parade.

The good news — or, maybe more accurately, the better news — is that there's a chance one more L.A. team will bring home a title. The Rams are expected to make the playoffs, and they might make it back to the Super Bowl.

As this year ends, we'll just have to wait and see if L.A. will be a city of two champions or three.
