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……

    Is there enough magic left? I gotta go with yes.
    Weird year, but we are still playing meaningful baseball and as wacky as this season has been, nobody can say it hasn’t been entertaining.
    Entertainment? Oh yeah, Bum going against HeeHaw, tonight on must see TV. Yup, I might be grilling up some late evening Polish sausages as a snack and back those dogs up with a few of Sierra Nevada’s finest. Gotta hunker in for this one.

    Excellent post Flav. I’m pretty excited that I’ll be in the building for this one. I’m thrilled that our boys are still playing meaningful baseball the last week of the season. They are being lead onto the field tonight by redass Bumgarner against the bums in our place. They’re gonna fight. Can’t wait

    • Flavor said, on September 29, 2015 at 7:20 am

      walking into work this morning, one of my co-workers flagged me down in the parking lot all excited. Her husband has tickets for tonight’s game and she goes “Game 7 tonight!” and I was like “Fuck yeah!”

    Nailed it, great rant leading into serious bum on bums action.
    Like I said last night, we may not be headed into the playoffs (?) but we are followers on one hella team and I am having an enjoyable season of my baseball passion with a big heart_edd, fighting TEAM.

  5. willedav said, on September 29, 2015 at 7:53 am

    Read through some comments on ML site…couple said LA should stop signing useless Phillies guys. Utley 0-5 last night, Rollins did nothing one time up.
    DTT also pinch ran for AGon in 9th, curious move. AGon got their last big hit, the single off Osich.
    The O is gonna see Seager and AGon again, has to learn from this.
    Lopez on other hand got the huge DP.

    Yeah, who the F is Trevor Brown indeed? Sure enough, one Trade Belt blogger on the ML site is ready for Brown to be part of things next year with Susac as Posey takes over 1b.

    • Flavor said, on September 29, 2015 at 7:56 am

      for some reason, I cannot remember that dude’s name. I just keep referring to him as “that catcher.”

  6. eddacker said, on September 29, 2015 at 8:07 am

    When that batter got his first sacrifice but of the year and Bochy’s pen wasn’t getting it done, I thought for sure DTT was finally getting one over Bochy. It is just the new face of Giant’s torture – let ’em tie the game and we’ll play 3 more tension filled innings FOR THE WIN.

  7. chipower9 said, on September 29, 2015 at 8:07 am

    Great thread, Flav! And what an awesome win last night.

    Lots of take-aways, but the ones that stick out for me were all the backhand plays that Tomlinson made…one that was absolutely spectacular, and had Peavy FIRED-UP! I can guarantee you that Tomlinson (unless he gets hurt or run over by a bus, etc.) makes the team out of ST next year.

    The kid is good. He gives you good ABs, and has filled-in admirably for Panik (and his position is actually SS). I loved about a week ago where he said (without ANY prodding from mgt) that he wanted to play some OF. I can absolutely see him being a super-sub and spot starter next year. One of the Giant’s “secret weapons.”

    I am with the Clown…I am gonna grill up some grub, have the cervezas on ice, and hit the bunker tonight. It is gonna be a war! Take No Prisoners!

    Of course I would love to see “The Miracle of Miracles” and have our boys win the West. But I just do not see us winning out, and the bums losing every fucking game. But I am stoked as all hell at the way our boys (half of them either Flying Squirrels or RiverCats) have battled their asses off to make this series relevant. HEART of a Champion!

    GO GIANTS – BEAT LA!

    Obviously some magic is working at ATT against the Dogpile, were 7-0 at home, why not 8?

    Hey, Valerie was a teenage dream. That’s why I watched it. And Macenzie Phillips was doing drugs the whole time. Kinda like watching the train wreck once a week. Plus it was a little more real than the fucking Brady Bunch.

    “One day at a time”. Classic. You nailed, it Flav. Along with probably more than half the Flappers, those were exactly the words i was thinking after last night’s huge one-run WIN. Heart. Yes, this bunch has that quality in full abundance. You do realize, though, or should anyway, that your posting has to be regarded as having committed literature.

  11. Dennis Zucchino said, on September 29, 2015 at 8:45 am

    Had my camera at the game and got a good view of the shock on Greinke’s face when Trevor Hit that double.
    From that moment I felt the Giants might get into the Dodgers heads.
    I imagine Donnie is thinking ‘this is why these guys could starve off 6 elimination games last year’.
    I also imagine that if his team can be held off from a celebration for another day, he’ll feel like Santa Anna at the Alamo… And you know how that ended up.

    Hell, I’m at least feeling good that there’s a good chance they won’t clinch on my last day here lucky enough to be at this next classic pitching matchup.
    Go Giants!

    • chipower9 said, on September 29, 2015 at 9:11 am

      Interesting comment about the elimination games, Dennis. WTF…they did it then…why not NOW?! Statistically, the odds are so far against our boys…but…

  12. blade3colorado said, on September 29, 2015 at 9:14 am

    Mattingly is an imbecile. As confirmed by LA Time’s Bill Plaschke, taking out AGon for a pitch runner was mind numbingly stupid. Related, the Bums are not built to win late inning games and as today’s thread indicates, they have NO HEART!

    Being an older fan why is this starting to remind me of season end 1962 where the Dodgers collapsed the last week of the season and the Giants caught them forcing a playoff which the Giants won and went on to the WS.

    Redlands Laker-Dodger fan Rank 628
    The dodgers should start Kershaw tomorrow rather than have him face MadBum in his home park. Dodgers cannot score vs MadBum and will waste another Kershaw gem. In addition Donnie Manager will go with his all anemic right handed hitting Mendoza lineup. No matter what pitcher the dodgers face they make him look like a Cy Young candidate.

    In a perverse way, I’m enjoying this. The team has no bullpen and they’ll lose in the playoffs anyway. But it’s the organization that has really betrayed the fans by going two seasons without televising the games.

      Love it! When their own fans are onto the gig, that is priceless. I am SO happy that the Giants have a class organization from top to bottom. And our team, regardless of what happens this year, has impressed the hell outta me with their heart. ST is going to be fun next year, as there are so many guys who will be trying to crack the team. The only one of the recent call-ups that I see making the team is Tomlinson, but again…it is going to be fun watching it all get sorted out. But that is NEXT year…let’s focus on this ONE GAME, and see WTF happens! Thanks for the share, Blade…good post.

    And can you name any of those Giants in the picture? Not likely as only three of their original starters played and five rookies played last night. Half of the Sacramento Giants vs. the (most likely) NL West rep. Sad that we are missing Pence, Aoki, Belt, Panik, among others. it would have been a far different story. Now the duds are rolling into the playoffs like little lambs…lame. Pederson, Utley, Crawford, Rollins, Van Slyke, Grandal, is this what you get for 300 mil? And where is the pig?« less

    Come here for baseball and get an analysis of 70s and contemporary sitcoms — awesome. I didn’t watch a whole lot of ODAAT, and if I did, like Chuck said, it was to check out Valerie Bertinelli. Something tells me a show with a middle-aged handyman hanging around a single mom’s two teenage daughters probably wouldn’t fly today.

    Great win last night! Any win against the Dog-ears is a great win! I had to crash before the end of the game but got the happy surprise this morning when I checked the scores. Better than a cup of coffee in the morning. Awesome. I say go ahead and sweep these fuckers and make the last couple of games really tense for the dudes from L.A.

    • chipower9 said, on September 29, 2015 at 10:11 am

      Ha. I was thinking I was probably the only one who crashed before the end of the game. I was exhausted yesterday, and hit the rack mid-way through the 10th. And yes, the FIRST thing I did upon waking up was to grab my phone and check the scores. BADA-BOOM, BADA-BING!

      BEAT LA!

    Silver linin just keeps on shinin. After the 3 games by three runs putdown in the Latrine this team looked like totally dead meat. Now those callup kids are going balls to the walls to make their mark BEFORE Spring Training even begins. Giants are developing this incredible mystique, this elan vital which elicits those talents from deep within struggling youngsters and gassed vets alike. It truly is a morality play, an exercise in rising above the individual to coalesce as a unit, as a TEAM. Last night’s victory against the likes of Zach Greinke by the veteran Peavy and the unheard-of likes of Brown and Tomlinson may have shattered the morale of the LaBumbos, whether or not they stumble into the playoffs.

    Facing the Undertaker tonight may be a bad dream come alive for the Dogs hitters, while the prospect of pitching to a bunch of unknowns with visions of making The Show next Spring has got to haunt Kershaw. Giants are in their heads. Time to erase another Ace. Go get Opie!

    A ball that travelled 30 ft further than Parker’s blast the other night. And it was caught. Willie Mays = Greatest Baseball Player Ever.

  24. unca_chuck said, on September 29, 2015 at 12:36 pm

    I thought I heard that they (whoever ‘they’ are) amended Parker’s blast (really?) to 475 or some shit.

    And I think that fence reads ‘583’ at the Polo Grounds.

  26. blade3colorado said, on September 29, 2015 at 12:40 pm

    Just my take, but I think Arrieta pulled ahead of Greinke in the CY race after last night’s game.

  27. Irish Kevin said, on September 29, 2015 at 12:52 pm

    The Giants are definitely in the D players heads. The way the Giants starts are all beat up, the Dodgers should have run away with the West along time ago. Yet here they are battling a no name Giants team, well maybe not quite no name, but still. So yeah I love watching the Bums squirm!! Get past CK and all bets are off, it will be game on for the west title!!

  28. Carstie Clausen said, on September 29, 2015 at 1:47 pm

    One last point on May’s catch, why were the 97-57 New York Giants hosting the 111-43 Cleveland Indians in game 1 of the World Series? Serious question.

    • unca_chuck said, on September 29, 2015 at 2:44 pm

      They used to simply alternate year to year who hosted. Which has everything to do with the All Star game now deciding who hosts. Why it was never best record never ceases to amaze me.

  32. unca_chuck said, on September 29, 2015 at 2:41 pm

    Couple things about that pic. It’s got to be colorized. Who’s the dude in the window? Chub Feeney?

    How many inside the park home runs were hit there? If you hit one to the loading dock doors you could run for days.

    • Lurker John said, on September 29, 2015 at 2:49 pm

      I think you’re right, Chuck, it’s been colorized. Every other pic I’ve seen of that catch over the years has been B&W.

    • Bozo said, on September 29, 2015 at 3:21 pm

      I read where the guy in the window is also taking a photo of the catch but from another angle. Not only is the photo colorized, but they added a cartoon head to the guy standing in the middle of the second row.

    Hernandez had 2 hits after he entered game late last night, so that’s 4 straight knocks with a HR.

    Glad to hear we have Flappers in the house and going later in the week as well. Enjoy–Sarge and Chuck!

    3 guys I grew up with in Woodland were at the AC DC concert and sent me video from the show—they said it was a helluva an event. Yes, the field is a disgrace.
    And speaking of geezer rockers and Valerie Bertinelli……I will be at the Hollywood Bowl Sunday for the finale of the Van Halen concert. Quite possibly the last time ever David Lee and Eddie take the stage together.
    I’ve got mixed feelings about seeing these guys at this stage of the game, but I thought what the hell, this will be a good way to put a bow on my rock concert resume. One last VH concert.

    Ok I’m gonna have to say those 2 back to back bombs “Are fucking Killers”

    Need to put up a crooked number this inning and disable the car horn I keep hearing on the broadcast..

      Or not.

    I have the Dodger feed, sans the melodious Vin Scully . . . Instead, I have some dufus (no idea who he is) and the insufferable Orel Hershiser. Oh joy!

    Not.

      Charley Steiner, he sucks.

      • blade3colorado said, on September 29, 2015 at 9:34 pm

        Yep, he is terrible.

    I don’t know how important shooting for 20/100 is to Posey, but I better not see him behind the plate again this year…

    • Macdog said, on September 29, 2015 at 9:34 pm

      Pav tweet earlier tonight: Bochy said Posey will likely play first rest of the season after tonight. Likes way Brown has handled the staff.

    Guarantee Affeldt announces retirement before season ends…

  69. blade3colorado said, on September 29, 2015 at 9:26 pm

    Embarrassing.

  70. alleykat69 said, on September 29, 2015 at 9:32 pm

    All-Scrub team LU tomorrow..
    Ball-dudes may get a hack as well…

    • blade3colorado said, on September 29, 2015 at 9:36 pm

      Yeah, they’ll give Posey and Craw a rest. lqtm.

    I think it is time for a large person to sing the song.
    The Giants season ends after 157 games in a “No Mas” kind of way.

  72. zumiee said, on September 29, 2015 at 9:42 pm

    29 teams end the season disappointed. Our moment is tonight. Others have that moment coming later.

  73. eddacker said, on September 29, 2015 at 9:42 pm

    Sad, but a big deficit this season. And yet we fought. For a fan like me I hol my head up. Without other teams competing we have no way to set our goals. The team has a lot in place to win. And next year is an even year.
    Go Gigantes!

    • sfsarge said, on September 29, 2015 at 9:49 pm

      Yes, we have a nice core. And what promises to be a great bench next season. Hey, our boys fought till the last week of the season with a few starters and the river cats . Hold your heads high boys!

  74. blade3colorado said, on September 29, 2015 at 9:43 pm

    Kid got frozen on that pitch. Pfffftttt!

  75. blade3colorado said, on September 29, 2015 at 9:49 pm

    Bruce is going to throw his son out to the lions den. Interesting.

  76. sfsarge said, on September 29, 2015 at 9:52 pm

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

  77. Bozo said, on September 29, 2015 at 10:00 pm

    That’s the season.
    Go Bucs.

  78. snarkk said, on September 29, 2015 at 10:06 pm

    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…

  79. snarkk said, on September 29, 2015 at 10:36 pm

    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…

  80. mrsprtdude said, on September 29, 2015 at 11:50 pm

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

  81. snarkk said, on September 30, 2015 at 12:06 am

    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…
