A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

Steph. One Take.

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on February 28, 2022

Discussing baseball bores me right now.

Take 45 seconds of your life though and watch this…

Four Days…..

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on February 25, 2022

…till the delay the start of the season. Right now, I don’t really care. Still in the midst of Winter, baseball still feels a long way off to me. Another thing: even though they are holding meetings it doesn’t feel like this is going to get done any time soon.

Part of me hopes this goes on for a long time and all parties involved lose money and look like assholes.

But I know I’m gonna miss the game.

Just Because

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on February 23, 2022

No reason to keep that old thread going. Of course, there’s really no reason to start a new one, either. After all these years is there nothing left to discuss except tired takes on the Beatles and the posting of our wordle scores?

What have we become…..

NBA Weekend

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on February 20, 2022

Didn’t see any of it but heard the dunk contest was bad. This isn’t the fault of the athletes. Look, unless these guys suddenly develop the power of flight there’s really no where to go with this anymore.

I will watch the all star game because…..that’s what I do. Can’t remember ever missing one.

Wordle is back in my life after getting into a dispute with Pasalon about it. We now play each other every day for a nominal sum.

All Star Game AND Wordle is Now Over

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on February 18, 2022

Haven’t really paid much attention to it. I caught a glimpse of LeBron’s team and he looks to have Durant over a barrel. JTA is in the slam dunk contest and I guess it’s nice to have some Dub rep there but I can’t see him making much noise. Three point contest without Steph is dumb.

I am now officially ending, today, the Wordle craze. I found out during today’s game that if you guess a correct letter and there are two of that letter in the word you only get the letter in one spot. THAT is total freaking bullshit and I am canceling that game as of today. As the great San Dawg said, “you’d never see Pat Sajak trying that type of low level trickery.”

Searching For Sports Entertainment

NFL, over. MLB, doesn’t even really exist right now. Hockey…..

Decent Dubs match up tonight with Denver. Jokic is about as fun as there is to watch out there. Warriors playing pretty terribly lately especially on D. That probably isn’t going to change tonight.

Back improving. Can’t believe I have to wear this brace for 6-8 weeks, it feels like I’m already turning a corner!

Again, LA

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on February 14, 2022

That was tough to watch. Any reasonable take would have been that the Niners could have beaten that team, too. Who knows though, kyle probably would have screwed that game up, too.

Gotta hand it to the Rams. They have a plan (trade all their top picks away) and it worked. They got to the top of the mountain. This is no dynasty team though, not by a long shot. They are fortunate to get one of these but my guess is that’s all it will be.

Still, winning even one Super Bowl is awesome…..

I’m getting extremely tired of watching LA win so much. Lakers in the Bubble, Dodgers got the asterisk World Series, and now the Rams take what could very easily have been ours.

Super Bowl Time!

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on February 13, 2022

As I get used to traversing the earth a half inch shorter (gosh, I can see so much more of what’s going on down here now!) we have more important things to deal with than my fractured back. It’s The Super Bowl. The sting of the Niners loss has mostly subsided and I’m just excited for this game. Has their ever been a Super Bowl you weren’t excited to watch? Putting some money down helps. I’ve got my customary 20 teams at draftkings and then instead of betting on a team to win I prefer to try to nail the exact point total a team scores. Keeps it interesting no matter how the game unfolds.

I have LA scoring 18, 19, 22, 26, 29, 33 points

I have Cinn scoring 16, 17, 22, 26, 29, 33 points

odds range from 12-1 to 40-1 and I’ve got various denominations on each number.

So who is going to win this game? I settled on one of two outcomes: either Cinn wins a squeaker or LA blows them out.

Flavor Down

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on February 12, 2022

Let’s play a game of trying to guess how Big Flavor fractured 2 bones in his back on Thursday….

A) survived a plane crash—tuck and rolled right outta that bad boy

B) Wrastling an alligator (guessing this one will get voted down based on where I live)

C) skydiving mishap

D) fucking falling down at work

And get this: the Dr. says I’m losing a half inch off my height. WTF? So now I’m Medium Flavor? MF. Mother Fuck. This is some bullshit.

The Bengals and Info About The Flap

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on February 9, 2022

With baseball lost at sea we might as well kick around the SB winner. I am taking Cinn but not heavily. I think they Rams are pretty overrated but they do have a dominant DL and Cinn has a weak OL. That could change the entire game in their favor right there. So I guess I don’t have a strong take on the game since I think Cinn is going to win but I think LA could control the game at the LOS. Maybe I just really want The Bengals to win. You?

Regarding the Flap, I’m not doing a stable boys thing. Nothing lasts forever gents, our old asses know that as well as anyone. I could see keeping it going for one more baseball season. After that I’ll keep it preserved somewhere (probably here) for future generations to read (but not comment on) and you guys can all migrate to twitter (where I’ll be) or Chuck’s Niner blog (where I will also be).

So as of right now, prepare yourselves for this being the final season of the Flap. Hopefully baseball let’s us go out with a bang.

Day 68

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on February 7, 2022

As the lockout drags on, I continue to struggle for content. I was texting with a prominent Flap HOFer over the weekend. He wondered if the Flap was dying. Sadly, I told him it probably was. But I think he was surprised to find out that I interact with a dozen or so other Flap HOFers on twitter every day–hall of famers who otherwise don’t post regularly at the Flap anymore. Just something to think about. As we all know, I can’t keep this place running forever…..

The Thrill

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on February 3, 2022

I know everyone saw this the other day but we need a new thread. The Giants have finally gotten around to retiring #22. I see they are making it part of a huge ticket marketing scheme. Whatever, at least it’s getting done. For a Giants fan my age if you asked who your favorite Giant of all time is I bet 90% of us would say Will Clark…..

Overrated LA

Posted in Uncategorized by twinfan1 on February 1, 2022

The Rams are 4.5 favorites? Look, I know the Bengals have some issues with their OL that LA should be able to exploit but if you can go into KC and take down the great Mahomes when you spot him a 21-3 lead, in that environment, I’m betting they can get past a Rams teams that specializes in blowing 17 point leads.

I’ll be rooting hard for Cincy regardless.

Jeez, dead zone for sports for Big Flavor right now. NBA doesn’t really do it for me. Hockey is stupid. And with football just about wrapped up I would usually be staring out that damn window with Chi with feverish excitement for baseball to start but that seems a lifetime away from happening right now.
