Last nights victory over the Padres in the 9th inning was beautiful! I enjoyed every single minute of the game.
It doesn’t bother me a bit that up until the very last-minute it could have gone either way nor that we only won by 1 run (again) I prefer it that way. Win or lose this is the kind of baseball that I live for.
Without a doubt this is exactly what our guys needed to pump them back up. It was a long and tough road trip that took its toll on their young souls and made them forget for just a moment that they are the WORLD CHAMPIONS!
That’s all behind them now and I feel confident that they will now remember that they hold two trophy’s and neither one of them came easy. If they had, they wouldn’t mean as much. And they mean tons!
My entire lifetime the San Francisco Giants have never fail to provide me with the excitement that keeps my heart pumping. However I waited 54 years for that 2010 trophy and having two in my lifetime is more than I could ever hope for. Winning is not something lifer’s like me are used to but I do believe it is starting to become a habit!
Like other fans I too call it “torture” and I don’t think I am the only one that means that as the highest of complements. The highlight for me wasn’t so much Angel’s walk off hit (which was amazing) but his teammates reaction and the unbridled enthusiasm of the celebration they inflicted on him.
I am always preaching about how special this group is and the fact that they swarmed the field as excited as if they had just won another championship is part of what makes Giants baseball so amazing and wonderful!
