GAMEBALL and JOKER ==> GIANTS at RANGERS 11/01 WORLD SERIES GAME 5
World !@#$ Champions my friends….been waiting a !@#$ LONG TIME for this…..all those years of futility and heartbreak….all those cold nights at Candlestick and Pac Bell Park….. all those games listened to on the radio, watched on TV and in person….…..all the box scores poured over, the stats and scouting reports read….all the hundreds and thousands of dollars spend on gear and tickets and travel…..all TIME spent working the Giants into our lives day in and day out for most of the year every !@#$ year……all the disrespect from the media and rival fanbases……all the ghosts of the past that haunted us…..all of the emotional investment that you have put into this team…..well my friends….it was all worth it……everything you put into this team has been paid back tonight……so dear rest of the Baseball World…..Kiss My Ass and Suck My Dick…..the San Franfuckingcisco Giants are WORLD CHAMPIONS……and THE only trophy that really means anything is FINALLY coming home…….
GAMEBALL and JOKER ==> GIANTS at RANGERS 11/01 WORLD SERIES GAME 5
Edgar !@#$ Renteria…..World Series MVP…..it doesn't matter that he had back to back overpaid subpar years anymore….when we look back years from now at Edgar in a Giants uniform, all you can say is World Series MVP…..he could ride down that Market Street Parade fondling himself screaming racial epithets and he would still of a fucknig Hero…..just Maldonado and Jose Cruz's are victims of forgotten regular seasons over post season mishaps……Edgar will benefit from being THE MAN with his 2 Homers in 2 separate World Series game to give the Giants a lead then would not relinquish……good job Edgar, and don't be surprised if we don't see Edgar back in a Giants uniform next year…..and no matter how he plays during the regular season, we can always fall back on that whole Clutch thing…..just get him to the playoffs……
TIP OF THE CAP :
Within a batter, I knew Timmy was on and the Rangers had a uphill battle….he looked as sharp as the Shutout versus the Braves…..and how can you not love this kid…..Athletic with the long hair and free spirit (code word for likes to smoke pot)……he's everything that Nor Cal cool is all about….I can't see this kid in any other uniform, and lets hope he feels the same
Yes, was nails all postseason…..and tonight did something neither Nen nor Beck ever did…..get the ULTIMATE out of the season…..
ROSS and URIBE
Back to Back singles set up the game winner
Laid down a nice sacrifice bunt…..his FIRST of his career…..and in a World Series Clincher…..and man was it a beaut….
HARMON and SUE BURNS
For helping save the Giants from the move, wish you could be here with us and hope you are watching…..
Catches a lot of flak, but was a major part of keeping this team here and by extension making this day possible
SABEAN and STAFF
Taken their share of flak….and maybe Sabean isn't making those calls in the draft…..but someone in that office picked Cain JSanchez Wilson Posey Bumgarner Linceceum Romo Runzler and obtained Huff Pat Ross FSanchez Uribe and now we can put Renteria on that list,…..yeah, they have made a couple bonehead moves, but when you bring home that Trophy, all that !@#$ fades in importance……
SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS FANS
We got a KICK ASS Fanbase…..smart, loyal, tenacious, stubborn…and there are a !@#$ !@#$ LOAD of us…..man, I am proud to be one of you and call myself a Giants Fan….. we don't get enough love from the rest of baseball, and it don't !@#$ matter…now we got our !@#$ Trophy and no Media Expert can take that away from us…..
Got Will Clark Auto, Got to see the Giants Win it all…..and even got Torres Champagne goggles as a souvenir…
Dodgers??? What the hell??? Why you talking about the Dodgers…..I will tell you ……when I was a kid the Giants broke my heart…..the year was 1987…..I was still young so I figured that if it wasn't 1987, then 1988 was certainly our year…..most of the same team coming back and hell we didn't find out stride until the second half anyway…..yup was going to be 1988…well…..lets just say 1988 isn't famous for a Giants Victory…..and I was not only crushed my Giants weren't back in the postseason…..I got to watch the storybook Dodgers take the !@#$ title….Mickey !@#$ Hatcher….no speed, no bat, no power, no defense….what the !@#$……well I tell you what…..as bad as I felt on that day…….I have to imagine that's what those Dodger !@#$ are feeling right now……looking at how their year when to !@#$….how their owner screwed them over and how the Giants have THEIR STORYBOOK team ride into October all the way to the promised land……Hey Call me a Sore Winner if you will, but part of being on top of the mountain is rubbing it into the faces of those less fortunate….
SMACK OF THE STICK :
Plenty of room on the bandwagon, come on over…..and hey, after the A's move your kids will grow up to be Giants fans anyway….its what's best for your family
Hey, look at the bright side…..at least you won't have to watch your home team lose the Super Bowl too
OK Folks…..honestly this whole thing is still a little surreal……headed into the City right after the last out ….we flipped over a Couple Zip Cars and set fire to a Segway…..but it still hasn't settled in…..just watched the Trophy Ceremony and it is starting to set in…..maybe tonight when I close my eyes….maybe Wednesday when we are at the Parade…..maybe come spring when we are back at the park…..not sure how I will finally react……the only thing I DO know is we are no longer that cursed franchise striving to someday reach the top…..no, this changes everything……we CAN get there, and now we are just like a bunch of other teams that know the taste of victory……was convinced it would never happen in my lifetime……now it has…..and, well……maybe I can stop being such a cynical !@#$….well, for at least a few months.,……
(The fine print: There will be cussing and bad taste. This is written with the heat of the moment feel you may have during the game, with rational thought sprinkled in now and then. This is entertainment folks, sure there is a lot of truth and I am a genius, but this is all about having a laugh and enjoying the ride…….now lets go heckle Jeff Kent when he gets inducted to Cooperstown..)

Re: GAMEBALL and JOKER ==> GIANTS at RANGERS 11/01 WORLD SERIES GAME 5 Way to go Merk.
And thank you for providing us with this board and your fandom at the helm.
It's been a long road for all of us and having this place available to vent, moan, cheer, and hope for the last few years has made a big difference.
And it even made being able to celebrate with other fans last night all that much better.
Re: GAMEBALL and JOKER ==> GIANTS at RANGERS 11/01 WORLD SERIES GAME 5 I think I can speak for the mule contingent in saying that we feel very fortunate to have had this site at which to enjoy the ride.
It has been an E ticket ride for sure, and what a payoff.
