Giants Win It!

I've had almost a week to let it sink in and I still can't believe it: the Giants won the World Series!!!

Even though Chris and I managed to always go to the game before the big game, it was still incredibly fun to watch this team of misfits (as they were branded by the national media) bring San Francisco its first championship since the move from New York. Not sure how two-time Cy Young winner Tim Lincecum and the guy who will surely be the rookie of the year, Buster Posey, add up to misfits, but I don't really care either. And while I wait for my orange World Series Champs tee shirt to arrive in the mail, I have this perhaps-not-suitable-for-grandmas video to watch over and over with a huge grin on my face.

Here's hoping it doesn't take another 56 years to win another one (yes, I see your eyes rolling, Cubs fans). But even if it does, I think we'll have lots of memories of the torture that felt so good, the beards that were feared, and Brian Wilson's "Machine" to keep us smiling.
