Giants Advance To World Series On 9-0 Win; Blogger Bites Fingernails Anyway

October 22, 2012

OK. Not exactly what I expected, by which I mean: what the holy hell was thaaaaaaaat?

And not just any blowout, but one that ends when the sky opens and buckets of angel tears cascade to Earth and you pray to god Gary Darling doesn’t melt like the Wicked Witch.

    I spent half the game with the sh*ts…not sure if it was nerves or food poisoning…but it was a crazy, crazy game. I don’t know if I can take another seven games…dear God, please let us abandon this come from behind in successive ‘must win’ games…can we just sweep the Tigers in some miraculous display of Giants special sauce and then commence the partying, please?
