All things outside of Burning Man.

Some of the fans there in Philadelphia kinda look like they're gonna jump off a bridge if the Phillies lose
Down to the final strike now

I think that last pitch to Ryan Howard was low and outside. The umpire did'nt call it right a way

You're right!

But lightin up man. Just sayin the pitch looked low and outside, from my vantage point. Your Giants won and my congrats go out to them and the Rangers.

If the Giants win the the series, it will be the first time they've done so since moving San Franciso.

[Looking forward to Dodger Fan arguing ball & strike calls throughout the Series, until he leaves in 7th inning.]

Texas and SF are pretty evenly matched, 162 homers for each for the year though Texas dominated with almost triple in stolen bases, we have a better pitching staff. Ought to be a great series. I'm happy for both teams. I'm just tired of all the sports writing naysayers denigrating the Giants at every chance....dopers, hippies, rodeo clowns, unnaturally dark beards, rag tags, mis fits, etc. We won the NLCS. We did it with talent,power, managing genius, and the right mental attitudes. We deserve to be there. So does Texas.

Also. The Giants won because I stayed home and did a special fire ceremony for them...the same type of fire ceremony I did for the 2004 Red Sox. Say what you will. Baseball is a sport of superstitions , talismans, curses, odd magic and improbable outcomes. Metaphysics is part of the game....always was always will be.

The Panda could steal on Bengie.

Assuming he ever gets on base.

If Fenway is the Basilica of Rome in Boston (it is) then AT&T Park is the Sistine Chapel of the West. This is religion at its best!

Funny that Barbara Bush, seated between 41 and 43, was the one keeping the scorecard. Must be the brains in the family.

So happy to see the kid from Hickorey North Carolina beat them so convincingly in front of the Bush coven. We'll probably win tonight.

I think the Bushies jinxed the Rangers. They said Poppy was from Texas, he ain't, he's an old waspy Yankee from Connecticut. Notice they didn't show them much when the tide turned.....our misfits, dope smokers and weirdos from San Francisco beat em in their own park.....why don't we fly California State flags like these folks fly the Texas flag?

Happy to see the bridge and tunnel crowd mob the city and no one get shot or looted, AFAIK.

Also happy to finally locate my Jose Uribe signature hat, c.1987.

And happy to look forward to next Spring when we can prove them all wrong again.

A little late but, Cograts to Giants.
Like eplaya, my computer blew up and just got it back yesterday.
I feel like a newbie.

Did you notice Laura Bush never put her hand over her heart during God Bless America.

Tickets to A's Red Sox Tuesday night!

My prediction: Red Sox Giants 2011 World Series. Don't look like it now but there's a lot of baseball left.

Um, yeah.

Sixth inning, time for the Red Sox pitchers to start cracking beers.
