This has nothing to do with politics, or Nancy Pelosi, or SF as a cesspool of depravity--its just baseball folks and it is good to finally see my long time team up three to one in the World Series.
Remember, both these teams had to play their hearts out to get where they are today. Only one team can win and so far, the Giants have had some fantastic pitching and fielding. Heck the Rangers couldn't even get past third base tonight. The Kid, only 21 years old, throwing the ball like that for eight innings. Impressive indeed.
I apologize to the Giants fans for calling their boys bums in my post above.
They are gamers.
Huff is the only bum as he was worthless as a Tiger last year and a key letdown in Detroit not making the 09 post season.
You said it. I'm always happy when the Bronx Bombers bite the big one.
Props to Bumgarner. He reminds me of a sprinkler head when he throws, but man could he bring it.
Brother tell me about it!
My earliest baseball memory is a soft liner off the bat of Willie McCovey with two runners in scoring position in 1962. Just like that the series was over and the Yankees had won.
Then there was 1989. The earth moved and the A's swept.
2002, it just felt like it wasn't going to happen after they went to Anaheim. I still remember those lousy plastic noise makers, American vuvuzelas.
It's 3-1. We have to win one. They have to win 3. Just one more. I don't care where it happens, I don't care who the hero is, as long as it happens.
Loved the Giants and A’s my whole life too, but boy it was great to see father and son take the mound and pitch to Nolan Ryan.
I can’t tell you how much I admire the state of Texas. It’s nice to see the Giants winning, but I wish it were against the Yankees. Texas is too great a place for them to lose their first series.
I’m also a Yankees fan, having been in the military in NYC in the early 90’s, and having been the beneficiary of Steinbrenner’s policy of letting anybody with a green military ID card in through the press gate for $1. God bless George for that. Didn’t have much money, but a bag lunch, a couple of subway tokens, and $1 got you into the house that Joe Dimaggio built.
I live in Seattle now. How’d you like to root for them?
