World Champion San Francisco Giants! I will never tire of saying it. I remember the days sitting at Candlestick Park with attendance at around 7,000. It was so empty that you could actually hear conversations 2 sections away. Congratulations to the the incredible never say die 2012 Giants team, the organization and staff and especially the fans. All we need to do is to get Obama packing and I will be one completely happy girl!

Yeah, I sat thru a lot of cold, damp, foggy, windy, miserable days and nights at Candlestick Park in the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s in that dump watching lousy baseball.

Amazing how the 2010 Giants won the WS and the 2012 Giants overcame an 0-2 deficit on the road against the Reds, then overcame a 1-3 deficit against the Cardinals, then swept the “unbeatable” Tigers, 4-0

First team to win 2 WS in 3 years in the NL since the Big Red Machine in the mid-70’s.

And a young team to boot, so they’re not done yet.

Bumgarner, Lincecum, Cain, Sandoval, Crawford, Belt, Posey (Likely NL MVP) Gregor Blanco and others.

Great defensive team too.

Even that goofball Hunter Pence contributed.

This team will contend for a while.

Giants came back from 0-2 against the Reds on the road, 1-3 against the Cards, then sweep the “unbeatable” Tigers and end up winning their last 7 playoff/WS games, and 8 of their last 11 playoff and WS games - amazing.

Winning 7 straight playoff/WS games is a huge task.

One of the best playoff runs I’ve ever seen and I’ve been watching BB since Bob Gibson against the Tigers in 1968, one of the most dominant teams I’ve ever seen, even though the Cards lost but I felt they were the better team.

I vaguely remember the Cards winning in 67 and Gibson dominating, but was a bit too young to care/remember.

Keep in mind, not everyone born and raised in SF is a flaming lib - many of us are conservative and California used to be a Conservative State and God willing, will be again someday.

It’s mostly the “transplants” that are liberals and are the ones that have ruined this once great city and state.
