Congrats to the Giants and to the Tigers for at least making the last game a competitive one....
KTVU live feed. Lots of people jumping up on cars all over SF (right now at 10:30pm, it's rather early even for a school night), but not yet at the level of rioting.
And here's one of my own pics just to celebrate San Francisco.
It also took five games for the Giants to prevail over the Reds, not four.
Finally getting tired after that awesomely intense and fun game to watch. All I could say right afterwards was, "Marco's got a ring!!". More than likely a pretty big goose egg on his noggin too from the bop he took during the Celebration. I'm sure the Champaign's taking care of any pain though.
Congratulations PL, The Giants and the rest of Giants Nation!!
Sigh...Now that Baseball's done, I'm going to be awfully lost around here w/no Hockey to fill the gap.
Congrats to the team, their manager, the fans, and especially Princess Leppard and her Beard
Fortunately, my MD Terrapins basketball starts Friday!
Yay, Giants! Dance, PL, dance! lol I'm happy my 82 year old grandma got to see them win another one (she's ailing quite a bit now and has been a Giants fan since she moved here to the usa in the mid 80's). Also happy for in my mind's sick and twisted way, I think of this a payback since the Tigers blew the Yankees out, lol. Woohoo! Now I need to convince my kids' school to switch their Halloween parade to another day so we can go to the Giants parade! grrr
Happy for PL and Scutaro. Very for my Tigers. Ohhhh well, on with winter sports -- hockey but no NHL.
Congrats to PL and her Giants.
Seriously bummed about the Tigers. You could tell right away in game one that they had lost their play-offs mojo. Oh well. Spring training starts in four months......
I've been a Giants fan for a long time, though I'm an AL girl all the way, and am really happy for them. (Could Sergio Romo possibly be more adorable?) I'm glad that it was them who beat the Tigers. It made the defeat a lot easier to take.
ETA: I'm an AL girl, but I draw the line at the Yankees, and possibly Oakland (don't know why, but I don't like them at all.)
Tigers have picked up the options on Dotel and Peralta and are bringing back their entire coaching staff. I'm just coming back from a couple year break from baseball so I don't know if this is good news or not but I did like what little I saw of Dotel in the world series.
The aftermath in SF:
...although IMHO what happened was fairly isolated, although certainly unacceptable. Still, just about any day's a party in SF, and with the victory parade coinciding with Halloween tomorrow, SF is going to be a total mad house all day long.
KTVU live feed of victory parade:
Angel Pagan hands out tacos in Redwood City (with video):
Come to Vancouver, we'll show you how to have a riot after a championship series. And the Vancouver team didn't even win!
Rioters publicly shamed, and rightly so
I wish Angel Pagan was in my drive thru window
Driving all the way in, no less?
You know, I just realized I have no idea what the Beard's real name is.
Barry Zito and Sergio Romo will be on Jay Leno tonight.
Zito isn't much fun in an interview, but Sergio is an absolute riot. Not Brian Wilson wacky, just a lot of fun...
In our house, he's known as "Not THAT Brian Wilson". But I bet he could bust out a nice rendition of "I Get Around" if he wanted to
You can find videos of him doing karaoke, and he does have a nice voice.
In baseball news, the Giants do not exercise their option on Aubrey Huff (thankfully).
More epilogues from the blissful parallel universe that is San Francisco, as chronicled by one of my favorite local TV reporters.
It's Awards time!!
CBC Sports ~Mike Trout, Bryce Harper win MLB rookie awards
I saw Mike Trout play earlier this year, and he is amazing. And Bryce Harper lived up to the hype, imo.
Bryce!!!! The Haaaaarper.
As a (brand new) Tigers fan, I would love to see Cabrera win MVP but I kind of think Mike Trout deserves it.
