The Greatest Moment Of The Decade?

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on December 20, 2019

Very weird decade that’s about to end. This is the end of the damn DECADE. And no one seems to care. Best Bay Area sports moment? Best moment of my lifetime? Gotta be this one. And as much as I think Aubrey Huff is the dumbest motherfucker alive, seriously he may be the dumbest motherfucker of all who have yet to live, watching him take his hat off and hoist it with that shaky arm high above the celebration…..man, that shit was the shit. And then he tossed it away like the dumbfuck he is. I hope he never got it back. As dumb as he is he’ll always be one of the greatest Giants to me.

    also that look from B-Wheezy when he turned around. Man, so fucking good.

  2. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on December 20, 2019 at 7:07 pm

    Yep. Happy days. Tears in eyes happy.

  3. alleykat69 said, on December 20, 2019 at 7:11 pm

    Yeah nothing beats the 1st W/S Championship!
    As dumb as a fence post is Aubrey Huff, he really had a solid season and playoff run with the Giants..

    Buster probably hasn’t run that fast since that night…

    • Flavor said, on December 20, 2019 at 7:21 pm

      him jumping around like a 5 year old was awesome too.

      • PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on December 20, 2019 at 7:24 pm

        Yeah they looked so young and innocent way back in 2010….

  5. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on December 20, 2019 at 7:26 pm

    Maybe that’s one fun thing to look forward to in this rebuild: the end result of winning another championship someday soon with a whole new probably mainly young group of un-jaded players. Rebuild, reboot, rejoice…

      For the foreseeable future: Reflect, regret, regurgitate…

    That was an amazing moment. Boch didn’t look worn down. The last 2.5 or so seasons have to have taken a real toll on him.

    • Flavor said, on December 20, 2019 at 7:46 pm

      totally. Great call.

  7. dirtnrocksnomo said, on December 20, 2019 at 7:50 pm

    Team of the decade.

  8. djloo27 said, on December 20, 2019 at 8:26 pm

    It ended with Gillaspie’s Citi-bomb…

    • PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on December 20, 2019 at 8:32 pm

      Yeah, best to think about that as the last good thing. Remembering the bullpen melt-down in the NLDS, which was the real end to everything, is just… not…. fun…

    When well played, baseball is sports ballet. I try not to let players ruin a great game memory by listening post-game to them very long…

  11. mrsprtdude said, on December 21, 2019 at 12:32 am

    A moment I will remember forever. After i jumped around and yelled with joy with my family, talked to my dad..getting on the block a short while later. Craig. calm. Surreal. “Did that just happen?”

  12. mrsprtdude said, on December 21, 2019 at 12:32 am

    Post your video Craig if you still have it!

  13. Flavor said, on December 21, 2019 at 7:18 am

    man I haven’t watched that video since I posted it! Wow, a lot has changed. Katie’s just a little girl. And we got a better tv.

    • Flavor said, on December 21, 2019 at 7:23 am

      favorite moment has to be me telling Wendy not to ruin it with words. lqtm

  14. snarkk said, on December 21, 2019 at 8:03 am

    Heard something this morning.
    I liked it.

    Baseball explains everything — except winter…

  15. mrsprtdude said, on December 21, 2019 at 9:06 am

    “What just happened?” I will be able to hear McCarver forever..”If have to walk up and put it on a tee you do not walk him” Bahaha..Thanks Craig! Seeing Posey run like that is so fun. Different than in 14 when he did some sort of weird i love you head collapse man hug on mad bum which I’m guessing Bum will forever be pissed was caught on national television forever!

    • zumiee said, on December 21, 2019 at 9:44 am

      Aw, come on, man. 🙂 I love that moment! It was an exhausted Posey’s way of saying: “Thank you, man, thank you. You singlehandedly pulled us across the finish line.”
      It was a moment of brotherly love. A moment of sports triumph seen in a more personal way. And the photo captures a moment that only lasted about a second or two.

  16. alleykat69 said, on December 21, 2019 at 11:26 am

    How long will it take for Kapler to be worn out like Bochy was at the end?

    • Flavor said, on December 21, 2019 at 12:10 pm

      Kapler looks like he could withstand a lot, physically. If he’s a guy who internalizes everything he could be fucked in a week

  17. alleykat69 said, on December 21, 2019 at 12:20 pm

    In the Depth of Winter
    I finally learned that
    there was an Invincible Summer!
    3in5 Years Invincibility still brings a knowing nod and smile to my face!!

    “WTVF-TV in Nashville is reporting that Clayton Beathard, 22, and Paul Trapeni III, 21 were fatally stabbed after an altercation outside of a bar in Nashville early Saturday morning.
    Beathard was the brother of C.J. Beathard, the 49ers’ third-string quarterback who started 10 games over the last two years, including the five games after Jimmy Garoppolo tore his ACL in Week 3 against the Chiefs.
    “The fatal stabbings appear to have resulted from an argument over a woman that began inside Dogwood Bar and then turned physical when the parties went outside,” the Metro Nashville Police Department confirmed in a press release.
    “Multiple persons were involved in the outdoor fight during which the two men were both fatally stabbed in their sides. Beathard, of Thompson Station, and Trapeni, of Franklin, were both transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where they died. A third stabbing victim, a 21-year-old man, was treated and released.”

      Criminy. Lives snuffed out before they barely got started, and for what?…

  19. dirtnrocksnomo said, on December 21, 2019 at 1:38 pm

    I always liked the Sanchez no-no but also this moment partly because my bro and I were there.

    • Macdog said, on December 21, 2019 at 2:52 pm

      Best argument against the DH.

      • alleykat69 said, on December 21, 2019 at 2:55 pm

        Madbum would agree..

      • zumiee said, on December 21, 2019 at 5:11 pm

        Yeah, we shouldn’t underestimate how much being a hitter in the Arizona ballpark appeals to Bum.

      • Flavor said, on December 21, 2019 at 6:47 pm

        i mean, that’s gonna work against him more than it will for him. I’m really surprised he decided to go to a launching pad like that. Either he knows himself better than all the analytic guys or his career is about to take a swift turn downward. And AZ is not know for big free agent deals working out. They’re a level below the Angels but when they spend $$$ it’s not usually good money spent.

      • blade3colorado said, on December 21, 2019 at 7:08 pm

        Spot on what Flav said and what I have said since this deal went down. Also, remember that the Snakes were not even interested in Bum, until Bum and his agent made it known to the Snake’s front office that he would be interested in joining them, so much so, that he would take a deal below the $100 to $125 million he was trying to score with other teams. The only pre-requisite was a 5 year contract.

        I’m happy for Bum, but I don’t think this turns out well in the desert launching pad. Oh, little known fact (or at least, under publicized) – Bum’s career earnings still are more than Wheeler’s career earnings, which is appropriate.

  20. alleykat69 said, on December 21, 2019 at 7:32 pm

    The sad fact is Bum’s annual salary now at 17mil is still lower then Belt’s at 17.2 mil..,
    And of course way under Posey,Cueto,Longo,Shark!
    Not sure what Crawford makes, but still, Bum fucked himself again just to keep a horse corral in the desert 🌵 🐴🐴🐄

    50 years ago today Elvis made his surreal visit to the Oval Office to meet Nixon and asked to be made a drug enforcement agent, and also gave Nixon a WWII pistol.

    • blade3colorado said, on December 22, 2019 at 6:43 am

      Today, if that happened . . . umm, let’s say that David Lee Roth (yes, he’s a Republican), Trump would make him acting FBI Director and GIVE him a .45 Magnum revolver.

    Some kind of corporate rearrangement is bringing changes to all the SB Nation blogs, like McCovey Chronicles and TrueBlue LA, and lots of the SB Nation writers have been let go.
    SB Nation’s corporate owners wanna make more money. Because the 1% of people that have 50% of the money in the nation already aren’t satisfied. They gotta have more, like some kind of giant blood-sucking ticks that are already grossly over-large. OK, my metaphor is a bit gross, but the point is valid.

    • zumiee said, on December 22, 2019 at 7:46 am

      The corporate owner of the SB Nation sites is Vox Media.
      Vox Media is such a warm and engaging name.

  24. blade3colorado said, on December 22, 2019 at 8:10 am

    It has almost nothing to do with the corporations Zumiee. California legislators approved a landmark bill in September that requires companies like Uber, Lyft, SB Nation, etc., to treat contract workers as employees, a move that could reshape the gig economy and that adds fuel to a years long debate over whether the nature of work has become too insecure.

    The bill passed in a 29-to-11 vote in the State Senate and will apply to app-based companies, despite their efforts to negotiate an exemption. The Assembly gave its final approval, 56 to 15. California’s governor, Gavin Newsom, endorsed the bill as well. Under the measure, which would go into effect Jan. 1, workers must be designated as employees instead of contractors if a company exerts control over how they perform their tasks or if their work is part of a company’s regular business. I have no idea if Newsom will make adjustments to the bill or even if he can make adjustments. So, the bottom line is that a number of contract, part time writers are effected by this – not only sports writers, but all writers.

    • zumiee said, on December 22, 2019 at 8:27 am

      Thanks for the info, Blade!
      I saw that a Dodger fan had posted this at True Blue:

      This is happening because of an old practice that Vox adopted that doesn’t allow workers to be paid commensurate to their value.
      Details are familiar to most who have ever worked for or near a profit-seeking entity, but basically Vox never meant well. They just wanted to capitalize on a legal lacuna to maximize profit, and devil take the hindmost. Now I am guessing there will be a race to the bottom (i.e., hindmost) in states with high unemployment and poverty rates and low wages, largely run by politicians who are perfectly aware of the consequences of their actions.
      This is tiresome.

        You are correct though, within the context of what has occurred to workers over the last 30 plus years – when unions were at their peak membership. Specifically, corporations and politicians of all stripes, have systematically stripped worker’s rights to the bone, including reduction of pay, elimination of pensions, lying to voters about unions (e.g., it’s a socialist plot, etc.), and decreasing working hours below the 40 hour threshold where most workers get benefits, such as health care, 401k matching funds or participation in such plans, etc.

        I fault workers though for being so stupid and naive (see Trump voters). They were so easily manipulated.

    great Niner win yesterday, bout time we came out on the right end at the buzzer. Grappy still looks shaky to me but whatever, hopefully we get healthy enough in time for the playoffs.

    • Macdog said, on December 22, 2019 at 8:49 am

      Niners “came out on the right end at the buzzer” just two weeks ago vs. the Saints.

      • Flavor said, on December 22, 2019 at 12:42 pm

        all 3 of their losses were last second

  26. alleykat69 said, on December 22, 2019 at 10:48 am

    All on the line for the 49ers in Seattle in a hostile environment.Win and all roads go thru them.1st rd bye is a key to get them healthy, 2 home games if they win,lose and they have to travel, not the scenario they want to do..

    • Macdog said, on December 22, 2019 at 11:42 am

      That’s gotta be the Sunday Night game next game.

      • Macdog said, on December 22, 2019 at 11:43 am

        next week.

      • alleykat69 said, on December 22, 2019 at 12:19 pm

        Yes it is Mac!
        The NFL moved the start time to prime time!

  27. mrsprtdude said, on December 22, 2019 at 1:18 pm

    On further review..Bum in Az and not SF for one reason. Cain, Timmy (offered) Pence, Belt Crawford Posey
    Then Cueto and Shark. What do all those guys have that Bum doesn’t??? A FAT long term deal…

  28. alleykat69 said, on December 22, 2019 at 3:23 pm

    For sure mrsprtdude.
    They all got the big deals while Bum took it up his ass.That 1st contract he signed was naive on his part considering he singlehandley won them gm7 in 2014.
    Once the Giants has him locked& controlled he was screwed.The dirt bike incident also didn’t help his cause and I’m sure secretly they held that against him as well.
    Even Bum was saying to himself,”Why did the Dodgers renew Kershaw’s contract at 3/91 and the Giants didn’t talk to him at all about an extension?

  29. Flavor said, on December 22, 2019 at 5:14 pm

    what happened to Sammy Sosa? Jeeezus
