I realize I’ve been neglecting my blog, but I have a good reason! The San Francisco Giants, my absolute favorite baseball team, the team I’ve loved with all of my heart since I was eight-years-old and Will Clark was dazzling Candlestick crowds with his sweet swing, are not only in the playoffs, but have just won the National League pennant. Yes, my beloved Giants are in the World Series.
That’s one of those things that I have to say, pause, reflect, and say again just to make myself believe it’s actually true.
The San Francisco Giants are playing in the World Series, which starts on Wednesday at AT&T Park. It almost seems like fate that the National League wins the All-Star Game for the first time in forever and gets home field advantage in the World Series (an idea that I think is silly still) the year the Giants make it all the way to the end.
I’m so very proud of this team and so very excited about what’s to come.
I took the above photo at game three of the NLCS last week. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to swing World Series tickets, as they’re just slightly expensive, but trust that if I don’t make it to the park, I’ll be hooting and hollering as I watch at home. Go get ’em, Giants. Time to introduce torture baseball to the folks in Texas.
