At least the pot smoking commies have one occasion to celebrate today.
Super writing as always, Duke!
What the Giants did was amazing. It was great to see them win.
Now it will be great to see the dims and libs lose.
Congratulations to your SF Giants. It is unfortunate that their success comes as a result of poor defensive pitching decisions by the Rangers. I always want a 7-game Series.
Rangers outfielder Hamilton did say he could smell the doobie smoke wafting from the stand when he was in SF. I think the fans were just getting a head start on today’s referendum in California to legalize pot.
1) The Rangers couldn't overcome their inability to play at AT&T Park, especially that GIGANTIC center and right field areas. Vladimir Guerrero's misadventures during Game 1 made the Rangers get him out of the lineup for Game 2, and the Giants were able to shut down Josh Hamilton in Game 2.
2) The Giants' awesome pitching staff was something that put the dread in everyone if the Giants managed to get into the playoffs. Once the Giants got into the playoffs, they shut down the Braves, Phillies and Rangers hitting very quickly.
3) Losing Barry Lamar Bonds was the BEST thing to happen to the Giants. As such, it forced the Giants to build a cadre of players that could play as a team, and the whole team jelled just at the right time.
4) I'm SO happy that many members of the 1962 season Giants--who lost the World Series in that heartbreak loss--are still around to experience this season's victory.
