Re: Mules... We all know the many things the Giants accomplished and overcame, and the number of them is absurdly high. I'd try to list them, but it's almost certain a couple of things would be left out.
It's objectively one of the coolest single season/postseason combinations ever enjoyed by the fanbase of a major league baseball team.
For me, on this particular morning, it feels worth the wait, and now the horrible years and the disappointing endings in 1971, 1978, 1987, 1989, 1993, 1997, 2000, 2002 and 2003 provide satisfying perspective instead of pain.
I toast you mules for sticking with it through all the bad times, and I toast the players, coaches and management of our favorite team for allowing us vicariously to take this incredible ride with them.
