Go ahead, say it. It's no longer mere fantasy or sheer folly to do so. A rare mix of veteran rejects and budding stars completed an unlikely ascent to the Major League summit Monday night, allowing all to repeat a five-word phrase never before heard:

World Series champion San Francisco Giants. The Giants made franchise history with a 3-1 triumph over the Rangers in Game 5 of the World Series, ignoring their underdog status to capture the 106th Fall Classic, four games to one.

YEA GIANTS!!! I’ve been going to Giants games since “The Count” Montefusco, Johhny LeMaster, Vida Blue, and on and on.

Finally the SF Giants can claim their title out west!

Thanks to Ron Washington being an idiot and choosing to pitch to him in the 7th.

Dumb.

It’s entertainment, and bigtime entertainers have ALWAYS made big cash. ...even during the Great Depression.

Nothing wrong with enjoying a diversion from the real world.

Yeah God forbid someone does something with their freedom other than posting on a internet forum a hundred times a day.

“You better vote so American can even have a ball game next year dumasses.”
Cool it Francis!!!

Lighten up, Francis. I watched the World Series, and I’m going to vote, too. Enjoying sports, and being aware of what’s going on in the world are not mutually exclusive.

Yeah, we know. It's called "enjoying the moment." Try it some time.

How about this stat...

There are only 4 players in MLB history with WS-winning hits in TWO different World Series:

1) Lou Gehrig
2) Joe Dimaggio
3) Yogi Berra
4) Edgar Renteria

Congrats to the Rangers on their first World Series. They have a lot of talent, though it’s too bad that Lee is going to run off to New York next season. Seriously, that really sucks (like the Yankees!).
