The die-hard Dodgers fans who call themselves the "Bako Bums" are big on tradition. 

Paul Rogers, Garro Ellis, their friends and neighbors flock to Rogers's driveway to watch the big game every Halloween night. Whether it's a football game, basketball, dozens of people come over to watch together. 

"Everybody knows we have it every year it's an annual. We don't really invite anybody, people just show up," Rogers said. 

On Tuesday, the group watched Game 6 on Rogers's "big screen" garage door.

Around 60 to 70 people watched the game with a stadium-like feel - without having to make the trip to Los Angeles. 

The tradition was was extended one more day for Game 7 of the World Series. Despite the outcome of the game, with the Astros winning the World Series, the Bako Bums enjoyed watching their boys in blue make it as far as they did. 

"Most neighbors would complain, but we're a Dodger neighborhood," Ellis said.
