Do You Believe In Miracles?

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on July 19, 2019

When faced with the daunting task of leapfrogging 8 teams, I casually tossed out the need to play .700 ball to get us into the post season. There was also the #AHOFO post which put the call out to the universe to *win out.* I believe that feat would have taken us to 122 wins for the year. The latter was a joke, the former….I guess that was kind of a joke, too. How could this terrible baseball team play .700 ball the rest of the way?

And then came June 24th, one of the many low points in this lost season. The Giants were in the middle of getting woodshedded by Colorado. The blog was apathetically irate if that’s even possible. And then I got this text from Diggity:

I went back to the blog with this idea, found the saddest sack post I could find (shockingly it was Snarkk 🙂 🙂 ) and posted this:

And from there, we began to slowly get the band back together again. I gathered enough of our finest men to storm Oracle with one valiant, sustained push. This pic was taken just before the coup.

I know we look calm but let me tell you, I looked into the eyes of the troops before we went into battle. They knew how serious this was, they knew the task they faced and they knew the consequence should we fail. Flap Nation was counting on us. We could not and would not let them down…..

After the dust settled our mission seemed accomplished. There wasn’t much left to do besides sit back and wait. There’s even a rumor that I was sitting back and waiting so good I fell into a deep sleep on the train ride home. 🙂

What followed was perhaps the most unexpected run in San Francisco Giants history. A run we are still on. We’ve played .823 ball since that game. EIGHT MOTHERFUCKING TWENTY THREE BALL……

I’m not sure where this ends but after 3 years of losing I am happy to ride this out with no expectations whatsoever. From here until the trade deadline I will remain positive and hopeful. I support any move Z decides to make with the caveat that I get to grade them immediately. Simply put, I am a proud Facebook housewife until July 31st.

Through the magic of snapchat my daughter created this for you all. Enjoy!

    Mets catcher didn’t think the ball was going to get cut off, and went up the line and totally left the plate area.

      The relay throw was to the plate. No catcher there.

      Yep, they just panicked, and that was a total brainfart run..

    Braves got a walk off W over Nats tonite who were using 42 yr old Fernando Rodney to try and close out a game. Huh?

    Like I said last night hope Frazier (who had ball last) enjoying his trip to “san fran.”

    Giants ran out of the dugout when the Dick scored to jump with Panda and do the walkoff dance. All Panda did was hit a pop that should have been out #3. They should have all danced around with the Mets leftfielder…
