Back to Basking
Remember that poem Chi used to post over and over all winter about staring out the window waiting for something to start or stop or some shit? Well all that looky-looin’ has paid off, my man!
Outside of the Breeders Cup or the Kentucky Derby there is no day I look more forward to than this one. It’s not just the first baseball game of the year. It’s the first day of Summer. The calendar means nothing to me. Flip flops, bbqs, watching someone else mow a lawn. All that stuff. I love this day.
Marty Lurie, who I appreciate mostly because of his bizarre ability to not hang up on the most clueless of KNBR callers, does this thing every year where he asks fans to call up with their most outrageous prediction for the Giants. It can’t be anything stupid like “Belt will hit 500 home runs.” But it can be as simple as “The Giants will win 104 games this year.”
Let’s do that here today.
My single most outrageous prediction is that Melancon will lead the NL in saves with 49. Hey, it could happen. And if that comes to pass, watch out.
Go Giants. Go Summer. Today is your day to get your bask back on. About the only Flapper who is exempt from basking at least for a few moments is my main man in the county clink, and I bet even Stix finds a way to sneak a bit of a bask somewhere into his day……
So you have no excuse. Bask today. Bask like no one is looking…..
