It just seemed like yesterday "PITCH TO BARRY" during Giants games was the preferred rally cry. I remember attending the 2002 World Series when the Giants played the Anaheim Angels and during that game we totally fucking lost. We lost 10-4. Although the Giants came back the next two games, we ended up losing the title to the Angels but win or lose I will always be a Giants fan.
Just like most people growing up in any particular city, you tend to be exposed to your first baseball team just by sheer geographical coincidence. In 1989, because of the earthquake, I vividly remember watching Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles instead of the A's vs Giants World Series. I'm pretty positive if I wasn't five and obsessed with scrappy street turtles I would have watched the game instead. In San Francisco, the Giants aren't just a baseball team. They are synonymous of the city and people itself. And yes while you can apply that to most cities, most cities are not like San Francisco. If I could describe San Francisco in two words I would pick: Fanatical Locals. Not Extremist locals. Fanatic behavior includes rowdy public mattress burnings in the Mission and gay dudes celebrating the World Series in leather chaps and whistles while Extremist behavior elicits full fledged violent rioting and vehicle turning.
Only in San Francisco, a city encompassed in 49 square miles and roughly 800,000 residents, can you go to a house party where 70% of the guys are wearing Giants gear just to remind each other where they're at. And this was before we ever won a World Series in the bay. So when San Francisco went to the World Series for the first time ever in 2010, won it, and returned to the World Series tonight not even three years later- it's a big deal. It's like you and all your little kooky SF weirdo friends finally made it (again) to some big house party in LA no one expected you to go to.
Missed this shit on tv. Lil Wayne repping the Giants- can't hate on that too hard, even though there are a few other things to shake your head at like his actual singing. I guess Lil Wayne is like SF's stand in Jefferson Airplane?

Anybody that actually follows this blog will probably be all GANGnamed out by now. But thanks to facebook, China's Ai Weiwei has managed to add an unexpected level of fascination to this contemporary dance craze. Viral potentiality? Up there.
