    Let's go Tigers! I'm usually an NL against anybody in the World Series, but I'll make an exception for Leland.

    I don't care who wins the WS. Just happy that the Yankees and Cards were eliminated!

    I love how we're both rooting against the teams that were square in the way of our Ohio teams.

    Though by "rooting against" I really mean "totally ignoring in favor of football."

    I posted this as my Facebook status about 10 minutes ago:

    So, since I had started watching this game 1 during the 4th (forgot to DVR it before I left work this morning), I didn't know how the Giants got their previous 4 runs before the corpse of Barry Zito had his RBI single... Pablo Sandoval, Kung Fu Panda schmuckhole, hit 2 home runs of Verlander? 2?! #WTFBASEBALLGODS


    Of course, what did Sandoval just do in his at bat in the 5th? HIT HIS 3RD HOME RUN OF THE GAME! [face_plain] Now excuse me while I go light myself on fire....

    Did anyone else catch the Barry Bonds, Barry Manilow reference? That was messed up.

    I did, and chuckled. And @Lord Vivec, I just got to keep reminding myself that the Lakers season starts next week. :p

    Giants now up 2 - 0; Detroit needs to get through San Francisco's better pitching in Detroit now with Vogelsong and Cain coming up for the Giants.

    It was kind of fitting that I went to that screening of Halloween (the 1978 original) last night after game 2. I kept picturing the Giants logo as the pumpkin during the opening credits. :p


    DISLIKE. Just because the Giants are the better franchise of right ******* now (because of their success in 2010 & 2012) doesn't give them the all time better franchise title. Please. Each franchise has gone through their ups & downs (remember how the Giants almost moved to Tampa Bay in the early 90's?) for goodness sake. Goddamnit.

    That is really, really cool. :) Yeah, the Dodgers went through a rotation of names at times in Brooklyn (Robins, Superbas, Bridegrooms, Trolley Dodgers), but that still is a niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice piece of family history there, tom.
