A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

Beating Colorado

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on April 10, 2021

Again, our SP continues to be amazing. This is not sustainable. At some point the hitting needs to get going. Although I have feared the aged POTD for some time now.

The vaccine: Loo, i got my second shot a couple months ago (Moderna). The good news about the 12-36 hours of discomfort is that it literally goes away immeditely, it’s not like you slowly get better. Everyone should get vaccinated if they are given the opportunity. Normally I wouldn’t give a shit about dumbass anti-vaxers but they are going to slow the goal of herd immunity, likely allowing the virus to mutate again putting the sustainability of our vax at risk. Probably will just need a booster at some point next year but, yeah, FUCK the anti-vaxers.

Here’s are two pics submitted by Sarge–The first Flapper man enough to storm Oracle during the Pandemic.

    I swear to never post a music video again.
    How did that even start?
    I don’t think it was doable on the Splash…

      i’ve never clicked on one here and it just clogs up the timeline so good on you, don’t do it

      • djloo27 said, on April 10, 2021 at 8:29 pm

        I hope you ban ’em all…

    Yeah, Chuck, the Clash were one of the greatest rock bands. They did a lot of great work in a short period of time, and then broke up because Mick Jones wanted the band to do more rap. He said rap was the future. Years later Joe Strummer said “Mick was right.”

      I’m pretty sure I bought the London Calling album based on the album cover alone. The album was so great and exciting. I was too young to experience the excitement of new music in the 1960s, but the punk/new wave/alternative rock thing was just starting and I got to experience it. So much fun. It was so hugely important to me and my friends. We would all get together every Sunday night and watch MTV’s “120 Minutes.” That show was MUST-SEE TV to us.
      We would go to shows in the Bay Area. So many great shows. Sonic Youth at the Warfield, Living Color at One Step Beyond, the Cure at San Jose St., REM, U2, and on and on. And none of us had lots of money. Buy new shoes? Heck no, I need to buy the new Husker Du album!

    Fats Domino isn’t listed on either the Rolling Stone or Billboard lists, yet he was a huge influence on the Beatles and probably every other artist listed. Also, he probably outsold most of them.
    I really hate getting into these, better than, debates on music, so I’ll just leave it with this absolutely true quote, “Rahsaan Roland Kirk is God.” – Bozo

    Zumiee–you have not learned the lesson. The good news is, there are many days left. Carry on.

    • zumiee said, on April 10, 2021 at 8:17 pm

      What lesson? You said the Beatles were terrible, and that’s ridiculous, and I’ll never not respond to that. 🙂

      • zumiee said, on April 10, 2021 at 8:20 pm

        When you say you don’t like the Beatles, that’s something different, and I don’t have any opinion on that.

    Speaking of “best of” lists, the Dodgers have a chance to make a run at this regular season list:
    1906 Chicago Cubs: 116-36 (.763), lost World Series. …
    2001 Seattle Mariners: 116-46 (.716), lost in ALCS. …
    1998 New York Yankees: 114-48 (.704), won World Series. …
    1954 Cleveland Indians: 111-43 (.721), lost World Series. …
    1927 New York Yankees: 110-44 (.714), won World Series.

    It’s definitely great to have Buster back behind the plate, but $22 million next year vs. a $3 million buyout?
    Just can’t see it…

      Joan Payson will help Johnson out and pay/trade for him. Always works with the poor house Giants. Just ask Horace.

  7. zumiee said, on April 10, 2021 at 8:26 pm

    The Giants defeated that ‘54 Cleveland team, of course, in a sweep.

    Thought if another r/b hit the Lads covered–Chuck Berry’s Roll Over Beethoven. Original from 1956, for Chess brothers.

      Liverpool was a dockside city and it was a huge deal when a shipment of American records arrived.

    Loo, not sure if your 5:08 was serious or sarcastic (ABBA), but if serious, I am happy to not feel so alone in the wilderness as an ABBA lover. Ok, you didn’t say you love ABBA, but still. There, I said it. I’ve slept in line for tix to all sorts of punk and hard-ass music and grew up (still growing up) on loads of alternative stuff, but ABBA wrote and performed some of the best music ever, IMO. Can’t even tell you how watching a Chiquitita clip during the Darkness of Lockdown last year lifted my spirits…

    • Macdog said, on April 10, 2021 at 9:13 pm

      I could watch this all day (sorry Flav):

      • PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on April 10, 2021 at 9:26 pm

        Alright John, steppin’ up! 🙂 Honestly, some of their videos are terrible, but they were one of the first bands to extensively shoot vids of their songs very early on. Saw one video where Benny Andersson broke down some of his songs to their basic chords… just beautiful compositions. Could be argued they piled on too much extra stuff, but the music is gorgeous. That one clip of Chiquitita on some German TV show got me thru a dark evening or two. I’ll be a good Flapper and not post the link….

      It’s impossible to hear “Dancing Queen” and not feel better. That’s why I will always like a certain amount of pop music, in addition to rock music. We all listen to music to make us feel good.
      Those early Elton John albums were really cool. I’ve paid attention to his career pretty much the whole way. The first major concert I went to was when I was 20 years old. It was Elton John at the UC Davis basketball arena. I was absolutely mesmerized. Hearing all those songs played live, I was in some kind of trance for the whole show. I was trying to absorb as much as I could about the show.

      • PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on April 10, 2021 at 9:29 pm

        Yeah, catch the video of ABBA in Sydney in ’76 doing Dancing Queen; the audience is full of girls crying nearly like with the Fab 4 way back when. The empowerment of Girl Power from Agnetha and Frida was very real at the time.

    • djloo27 said, on April 11, 2021 at 5:03 am

      Dead serious!

    Ok, I was resting tonight, then saw that I misused “Positivist.” LOL. If you sit through one of Martin Jays’s classes, there is no fucking way you will ever forget about the evils of Positivism.

    • zumiee said, on April 10, 2021 at 9:35 pm

      I don’t necessarily know much about that, but I know that at all the fiction author events I’ve been to, I’ve never heard an author say anything good about the post-modern analysis done by many literature teachers.

      • James said, on April 10, 2021 at 9:46 pm

        That’s more complicated than Beatles/Stones.

      • zumiee said, on April 10, 2021 at 10:10 pm

        No doubt.

    The other day my old man mentioned that he never saw baseball at the Polo Grounds, it was Yankee Stadium exclusively while growing up. But he did see the New York Titans play one home game.

    • zumiee said, on April 10, 2021 at 10:04 pm

      It would have been cool if Seals Stadium had been saved somehow. So much history there. Now there’s a supermarket there. The land was too valuable.

      • zumiee said, on April 10, 2021 at 10:10 pm

        I think Nipper said he went to some games at Seals Stadium.
        Nipper! There’s a name from the past.

    The dresses in the Waterloo video couldn’t be any shorter and still be called clothing.
