THE San Francisco Giants Blog

1. More. Win.

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on November 1, 2010

I woke up this morning, rolled out of bed and noticed something unusual:

I was at the top of Mount Everest. I took off my goggles, looked around….It’s the biggest world I’ve ever seen. I would worry about sun blindness except for the fact that all the light is radiating from me, not towards me. So I’m just sitting here, quietly, writing the words that you’re reading now, atop this goddamn mountain. As a  Giants fan, I’ve been Sisyphus. And yet this morning, here I sit next to my boulder at the top of Mount Everest, unsure of what to do next…….

If any of you have any ideas, I’d love to hear them……..

      That was for Loo.

    • DJLoo said, on November 1, 2010 at 4:16 pm

      I’ve been with this team way longer than you scumbag. Just pointing out the irony of your prediction. So why don’t you shut the fuck up for once, you miserable cocksucker.

  2. Flavor said, on November 1, 2010 at 4:19 pm

    both of you shut the fuck up, I’m not having the delete button distract me from the glory and destiny of tonight. Say what you’re gonna say to each other but remember, YOU ALL are the ones who are creating these archives. Today could be THE DAY that we win the MOTHERFUCKING World Series. I don’t want people to have to skim over a bunch of cockersucker motherfucker posts!!!!!!!!!!

  3. twinfan said, on November 1, 2010 at 4:19 pm

    If I’m talking to you, you’ll feel the zipper, shitfuck. You have never been a Giants’ fan.

  4. twinfan said, on November 1, 2010 at 4:20 pm

    I was never talking to him so YOU shut the fuck up, Flavor.

  5. twinfan said, on November 1, 2010 at 4:22 pm

    I’ve talked nothing but ball today. Do not ever threaten me with that delete shit again. Loo can ignore me.

    Game Time Approacheth…

  7. blade3colorado said, on November 1, 2010 at 4:24 pm

    Not certain anyone mentioned this in the blog today, but it is very good news . . . The Texas Rangers have added right-hander Dustin Nippert to their World Series roster, replacing injured reliever Alexi Ogando.

    Nippert was 4-5 with a 4.29 ERA in 38 appearances during the regular season. He allowed two runs and two hits in his only inning this postseason, in Game 3 of the AL division series against Tampa Bay. He wasn’t on the roster for the AL championship series.

    Ogando made six playoff appearances, allowing an earned run over six innings with eight strikeouts and one walk. He tossed 3 2-3 scoreless innings in two World Series games.

    Flav, I think I will 1. Cry like a girl 2. Jiz

    • TedSpe said, on November 1, 2010 at 4:32 pm

      Jiz like a girl

      • ferrethead said, on November 1, 2010 at 4:35 pm

        Try to remember which comes out where, or things could get really messy!!!

        I mean – oooh, gross!!!

      • dirtnrocksnreno said, on November 1, 2010 at 4:35 pm

        Haha. I think that would be squirt

        Okay. Enough of that.

  9. twinfan said, on November 1, 2010 at 4:32 pm

    Cable is out here. Mediacom is the worst, they lost part of the last couple Super Bowls, WS, virtually every major event they get at least a partial outage..

  10. Flavor said, on November 1, 2010 at 4:34 pm

    Dirt, that’s POTD material baby, keep ’em coming…….

  11. Flavor said, on November 1, 2010 at 4:37 pm

    twin, that’s disturbingly ironic. Does Loo have any pull at mediacom? Call them up and give them one of your best “fuckwad” rants, that should do the trick….Seriously, I don’t know what I would do if I couldn’t watch this game–probably kill the person/entity that prevented it. I hope they get that shit straightened out quick for you….

  12. swickman said, on November 1, 2010 at 4:37 pm

    Fan since I was about 6 and got number 24 through sheer luck on my first little league team. 34 years and I hope it all ends tonight.

    • DJLoo said, on November 1, 2010 at 4:44 pm

      I got #7. For most kids that meant Mantle. For me it meant Jack Hiatt.
      But I’ve never been a Giant fan.

  13. twinfan said, on November 1, 2010 at 4:50 pm

    I just sprung another ten bucks for the Postseason deal.

  14. Bozo said, on November 1, 2010 at 4:53 pm

    Giants – bring that motherfucking fuckwad of a shithole, twat waffle trophy home with you on that plane.

  15. Unca Chuck said, on November 1, 2010 at 4:54 pm

    Ok, back to maudlin. I started going to game and lilstening to the Giants back in 1966. I’ve been a fan as long as I can remember being alive. From hearing about Don McMahon coming in to relieve Gaylord Perry to Bobby Bonds 1st game as a Giant to the playoffs in ’71 to a million memories triumphs, and in the end, tragiedies.

    Til now.

    Being on the brink of the World Series championship with the one and only team I’ve truly lived and died with my entire life is pretty cool.

    Play ball!!!

  16. delmardennis said, on November 1, 2010 at 4:59 pm

    Jesus H. Christ does our lineup stink on ice. Might as well top it off with NO Whitey to make it complete.

    Score first, score often, and WIN the World Series goddammit!

  17. delmardennis said, on November 1, 2010 at 5:05 pm

    Lee looks to have brought his ‘A’ game tonight. Let’s hope Timmy can reciprocate.

    I’m a goddamn nervous wreck. My hands are shaking and I can’t tapping my feet. Go get ’em Timmy! And go get a goddamn haircut!

    • delmardennis said, on November 1, 2010 at 5:07 pm

      cant “stop” tapping…See? I’m a mess.

  18. delmardennis said, on November 1, 2010 at 5:20 pm

    Why do they allow Cliff Lee to have that rosin (and other shit I’d imagine) on the bill and back of his cap?

    I know that shit can’t be legal. Fuck that cheating son of a bitch. I hope he chokes on some of Vera’s chicken.

  19. Unca Chuck said, on November 1, 2010 at 5:26 pm

    Huh. In SF it’s the freaks, the pot smokers, etc. In Texas it’s the nuns.

    Gimme a fucking break. Whoever said Fox was steering this as the ‘Us vs Them’ word series was dead on.

    Fuck these fuckers and their fucking horse . . .

  20. delmardennis said, on November 1, 2010 at 5:40 pm

    TF, what did you get for the streaming video? OSF lost his cable as well and he’s kinda lost– as usual.

    • twinfan said, on November 1, 2010 at 5:42 pm

      MLB.COM, Postseason package. $9.95, no black out. Little choppy.

  21. twinfan said, on November 1, 2010 at 5:41 pm

    Tim is the sharper thus far.. Buster needs to look to the RF seats…

  22. Unca Chuck said, on November 1, 2010 at 5:51 pm

    Total horseshit to allow Moreland to call time when Tim was halfway through his windup.

  23. Unca Chuck said, on November 1, 2010 at 5:52 pm

    That kind of shit gets pitchers injured . . .

  24. Unca Chuck said, on November 1, 2010 at 5:53 pm

    Just about all of them are real close to jacking one . . .

  25. tizzle said, on November 1, 2010 at 6:05 pm

    gotta be a hit

  26. delmardennis said, on November 1, 2010 at 6:06 pm

    Nice catch Moreland, NOT! C’mon, Machine you’re fucking due.

  27. xootsuit said, on November 1, 2010 at 6:10 pm

    On that last pitch of the AB Burrell pulled his head like LLeaguer.

  28. Craig said, on November 1, 2010 at 6:15 pm

    Timmy is making benjie look like a fucking wash woman

  29. tizzle said, on November 1, 2010 at 6:16 pm

    this is the bengie we traded. Great guy, no plate discipline. Good to see you again, my friend

  30. twinfan said, on November 1, 2010 at 6:16 pm

    Quite a duel. First to 1?

  31. ferrethead said, on November 1, 2010 at 6:17 pm

    Wow-weee! This is the pitching duel we were promised for Game 1.

  32. delmardennis said, on November 1, 2010 at 6:18 pm

    I see Rowand HR coming.

    • delmardennis said, on November 1, 2010 at 6:20 pm

      Then again, maybe the worst AB of all-time. I can sure pick ’em.

  33. tizzle said, on November 1, 2010 at 6:20 pm

    pretty dissapointing AB from the gamer..

  34. Craig said, on November 1, 2010 at 6:22 pm

    Lee has been epic tonight. Gimmie one magical swing…..

  35. ferrethead said, on November 1, 2010 at 6:23 pm

    Gah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It’ll go out next time!

  36. James said, on November 1, 2010 at 6:26 pm

    Fuck, well, no talk of breaks tonight.

  37. unca_chuck said, on November 1, 2010 at 6:28 pm

    Damn………….

    Still think we;’re gonna get to lee. . .

  38. unca_chuck said, on November 1, 2010 at 6:30 pm

    Wow, that was quick…..

  39. slo_roll said, on November 1, 2010 at 6:31 pm

    toe to toe – the longer this goes the more i like our chances…

  40. delmardennis said, on November 1, 2010 at 6:34 pm

    Somebody hit a goddamn home run!

  41. delmardennis said, on November 1, 2010 at 6:38 pm

    0-2 cripple from Mr. Lee. Thank’s for the charity. Damn, that was a fanfuckingtastic from the Huffster.
    Bochy pushes the button, and his players respond.

  42. James said, on November 1, 2010 at 6:38 pm

    Wow, what a situation.

  43. blade3colorado said, on November 1, 2010 at 6:38 pm

    Big AB for Burrell here . . . Come on Pat!

  44. ferrethead said, on November 1, 2010 at 6:44 pm

    How many Texans are digging GBA right now? Not too many…

    • delmardennis said, on November 1, 2010 at 6:48 pm

      Texans don’t believe in God right now.

  54. snarkk said, on November 1, 2010 at 6:47 pm

    Dayummmmmm! Why own when you can Rent?…

  55. wswinb4igo said, on November 1, 2010 at 6:47 pm

    Rent…His PS run of 8/10 games was worth the $18M

  56. twinfan said, on November 1, 2010 at 6:48 pm

    18 million, 56 years…

  57. Kevin said, on November 1, 2010 at 6:49 pm

    Ball game!!

  58. James said, on November 1, 2010 at 6:50 pm

    I think I have just lost my voice, dislocated my right shoulder, and deafened my entire family.

  59. snarkk said, on November 1, 2010 at 6:50 pm

    Tell you what. Burrell stuck out, but he made Lee work doing it, unlike last night’s strikeouts. That was a good AB by Pat the Bat, 7 or 8 pitch long. He might have taking something outta Lee, and Lee served then one up in the zone to Rent. I don’t know why they pitched for real to Rent, he’s a galaxy more clutch and contact hitter than Rohand on deck…

  60. alleykat said, on November 1, 2010 at 6:50 pm

    Every kid’s dream growing up.World series huge moment,and you deliver the shot heard around the world.Are atleast in your weekend pickup game with your buddys.

  61. delmardennis said, on November 1, 2010 at 6:50 pm

    Was it just me, but I was asking that ball to “get down.” I was hoping it’s split the two in LC.
    I didn’t think it was going out. But I should know better. If we don’t homer, we don’t score!

  62. unca_chuck said, on November 1, 2010 at 6:51 pm

    Oh My God. Rent wins a WS his rookie year. 13 years later, this…………

    UnREAL

  63. delmardennis said, on November 1, 2010 at 6:52 pm

    Grab some pine, Vlad. Jesus H. Christ, he looks horrible.

  64. unca_chuck said, on November 1, 2010 at 6:53 pm

    No biggie. Just stop it here.

  65. blade3colorado said, on November 1, 2010 at 6:53 pm

    OK, that’s Timmie’s “mulligan.”

    Now, let’s get back to business.

  66. James said, on November 1, 2010 at 6:56 pm

    I wish Lopez was in.

  67. James said, on November 1, 2010 at 7:01 pm

    Never mind. I am Delmar Dennis nervous right now.

    • delmardennis said, on November 1, 2010 at 7:05 pm

      I wish there was something you could take, James. Believe me, I’ve tried everything–nothing works.

      6 more outs should work.

  68. snarkk said, on November 1, 2010 at 7:02 pm

    Timmy’s like a stubborn, pissant terrier. Piss him off, and he’ll yap and yap and yap at you until you give up. Way to recover after that Cruz dinger. You can always count on Bengie to swing at crap down low…

  69. Kevin said, on November 1, 2010 at 7:03 pm

    Everyone relax the game is in the bag!! Rent is the man!!

  70. twinfan said, on November 1, 2010 at 7:08 pm

    Boy, a couple more would be sweet.

  71. Kevin said, on November 1, 2010 at 7:13 pm

    Twin, is Wilson coming in the 9th

  72. tizzle said, on November 1, 2010 at 7:14 pm

    anybody get a radar gun reading on that throw to first??

  73. tizzle said, on November 1, 2010 at 7:16 pm

    No way, Timmy in 9th

  74. delmardennis said, on November 1, 2010 at 7:16 pm

    3 outs to go. I say you let Timmy start the 9th. This is HIS game. Let ’em finish it.

    • delmardennis said, on November 1, 2010 at 7:19 pm

      I know Hamilton is set to lead off, but Timmy has handcuffed him but good tonight.
      Timmy is a closer himself. Timmy in the 9th.

  75. snarkk said, on November 1, 2010 at 7:16 pm

    Timmeh = Money. Great 8th…
