On Friday, May 12th, the Giants were the worst team in the Major Leagues.

That all changed with their HUGE 17 inning win that night against the Cincinnati Reds.

I was there for all 17 innings.  In fact, in a rarity, I was at the game about an hour early… so that’s about 6.5 hours of baseball for me!

By the end of the game… which ended just before 1am… there were only a couple dozen of us left in the park… you can see my picture of Buster Posey being greeted by his teammates after his game-ending homerun in the bottom of the 17th on the jumbotron… not a single soul in the bleechers.

From worst to first.  You heard it here… first.

SF Giants 17 inning win!

Always disheartening when there’s a great community celebration and a few stupid people ruin it with senseless vandalism.

Here’s a picture of such a low life… someone please identify this idiot so he can get ALL that he deserves.

However, I’m not so happy with the media, either… 99% of the celebration was spontaneous, sincere joy and fun… would have been nice to have captured some of those moments, too.

Probably the weirdest thing that came out of the reporting was learning — after a Muni bus was burned — that the City of San Francisco pays $1 million per Muni bus.

Say what?

Seems like in all the brouhaha, that little item was glossed over.

I hope that bus can fly.  Or the people in charge of buying public transportation in SF get fired.

On this Halloween day, that’s probably the most scary thing I’ll hear all day!

I like a lot of sports teams.  But I LOVE the San Francisco Giants.  Have I earned my Giant stripes?  You tell me… I would pour through box scores as a little boy in the Green Sheet (SF Chronicle)… I have a drawer full of Croix de Candlestick pins… and I was part of two of the top 10 record low crowds at Candlestick.

So, yes, I look good in orange & black.

It’s only fitting — on the night the San Francisco Giants win the Worlds Series — that congratulations go out to the players, the managers, the owners, the radio broadcast team (of which I listen to all the time), and, most of all, the fans, both young and old… this is all of our night to savor…

… we are…

… World Champions… !
