A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

Sports Forever

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 13, 2019

Just throwing up a new thread cause we need it. Yesterday was so cool. Games like those are the reason why I could care less about Game of Thrones or Marvel movies or whatever. Ain’t no spoilers to worry about in sports. You watch the end just like everyone else, nobody knows what’s going to happen.

And if you think I’m FOS on this, watch this. These dudes are the best.

      Something has to fill the void that the Giants are leaving every night.

    Is there a rule that every home broadcaster has to say that their team has the best grounds crew in the business? So fuckin’ annoying – they make a bunch of dopes with sand and rakes sound like fuckin’ miracle workers. You should see the disgrace going on at Yankee Stadium. If they ever start this thing, it’ll be in front of 800 people, which they’ll announce as 35,000. And if they cancel, anyone stupid enough to drive there loses their non-refundable $40 parking fee…

    Speaking of pet peeves, what is it about this fixation with guys going onto one knee to propose marriage? I see it in the media all the time and I just don’t get it. It’s some kind of fake chivalry that actually is a kind of condescending attitude toward the women. Women want to be equals in the relationship.
    I proposed to my wife as we were sitting in the middle seat of a mini-van having lunch in a museum parking lot. It seemed romantic to us, without the need to add a fake moment like me going onto one knee.
    Maybe I’m one of the few who thinks this way. The women in the videos in the media always seem to swoon when the guy does it. I wonder where that even started.

    I proposed over Kir Royales in the Rainbow Room atop Rockefeller Center in NYC on a long April weekend Friday night back in ’96. The place has been long gone for years now, not sure what replaced it. That Friday afternoon, we trained up from DC, my then girlfriend stepped off the curb awkwardly at Penn Station and sprained her ankle fairly badly before we were even in the City for 10 minutes. Then, the apartment we rented turned out to be a POS. After catching a show that night, I said “let’s go to the Rainbow Room for a drink”. She went reluctantly, limping. My wife’s reaction at the proposal was slight surprise, but then kind of “it’s about time”. No ring presented. We’d been together far too long to make that mistake. She later picked her own setting and I gave her a choice of three diamonds at a diamond broker in Bethesda — big one to middle sized to just over a carat, with quality going up as size went down. She picked the top quality, smallest one (and most expensive), of course…

      Thanks for sharing, Snarkk. I respect marriage proposals that are done more real like that, instead of elaborate fake medieval chivalry nonsense.
      I recently saw a photo on Facebook of a guy on one knee proposing. So they had this whole other person photographing it. Wow.

        I think the longer you know your partner, the less likely the perceived need for a bunch of fluff on this occasion. Just my opinion…

    There’s a whole sub-genre of proposal disasters.

    • djloo27 said, on May 13, 2019 at 9:34 pm

      Th disaster usually comes after the proposal…

    Funny moment in the a’s game just now. Seattle brought Cory Gearrin in to pitch in the top of the 7th. The a’s announcers Kuiper and Fosse eventually ran out of things to say during the interminable delays between pitches. They talked about Gearrin’s ridiculous pace itself for a while, but by the end Fosse’s soft, stupid laugh was all they offered. When Gearrin struck out Chapman to end the inning, both of them essentially celebrated to be out of it.

    Sharks should have known they were tempting fate having Bochy do the “open the door” ceremony to their locker room for them to charge out onto the Tank’s ice. They lose to the Blues 4-2. Sounds like a typical Giants loss…

    I was thinking the same thing. Steve Kerr? Sure. Is this yet another servicing of the Bochy retirement tour?
