One Day At A Time

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on September 29, 2015

Of course, I am talking about the 70’s sitcom. Remember that one? It starred Eddie Van Halen’s future ex-wife. It was about a divorced mother who was raising her 2 teenage daughters through all the grief the 70’s could throw at them. Truthfully, it was a below average comedy. Why did we watch it? Because it was on tv. And we had nothing else to do in the 70’s during prime time hours…..

The thing I disliked most about One Day at a Time was when they would try to tackle serious issues. Like one of the kids would get drunk and Bonnie Franklin would spend an entire scene crying her eyes out because she was a broke single mom and she didn’t know what else to do. Schneider, the affable, quirky handyman, would stand by, silent and awkward, watching her wail because this was something that a hammer and a nail just couldn’t fix.

I always felt worse after watching one of those serious episodes. Sad. Deflated. Wished I’d never seen it.

Of course, 3 decades later One Day at a Time was reincarnated in a new show called “Modern Family.” It had the same theme, a comedy about a family with an unusual family structure. The main difference between the two shows is that every scene in Modern Family is hilarious and they don’t spend a second tackling any serious social issues. Why? Because they’re all rich as fuck and they don’t have time for one-off serious drama scenes….

My point with all this sitcom talk?

I can’t bring myself to truly believe that the Giants have it in them to sweep the Dodgers. We simply don’t have the players to pull that off. But we do have the heart–something that beats much fainter in LA. These guys are playing with as much heart as any Giants team I’ve ever seen. So while I don’t believe we can sweep, I do believe we can win one….game…at…..a…..time.

One Day at a Time……

We’ve been gifted a surprise Game 7 today. If Bum can beat Kershaw we will have done the near impossible. We will have slayed their 2 headed beast back to back. And if we can do that, there is nothing to fear about Game 3 or 4.

So today is huge. And there is no other man I’d rather have take the hill for us.

One game at a time.

One day at a time……

    Left after the 6th, had zero desire to watch a blue dog pile on our terrible grass.

    That’s the season.
    Go Bucs.

    Well, Giants pressed onward with young guys as far as they could. Congrats to a game effort in the late season, with half the starters missing.
    They just ran into a superior pitcher tonight, with all his pitches going.
    Doghairs seem unlikely to get to the NLCS, let alone WS…

    Giants can still keep LA out of having home field against the Mets. That’s something for the kids to play for. And yes, that’s enough for Bum. He needs to be done for the season…

    Another great year of baseball and hanging out with you guys. Thanks again to Craig for keeping the Flap going! 3/6 anyone??

    LA has finished the season off on a downward heading, but they’ve managed the division win largely without Puig the second half of the season. Would not at all be surprised if they jettison him in the offseason…
