epic

i love baseball in october.

defying odds. expectations. predictions.

the sf giants lose their first 2 games at home and then win 3 on the road. making history, baby. sweeping the reds at home, which hadn't been done in a 3 game homestand for the reds this season. killing latos, the former giant killer. giant hater. the first nl team in history to win this way. winning as a team because they looked in each other's eyes and brought it. winning for each other. leaving it all on the field. along with a quiet stadium filing out...

we meet the cards. the never say die cards. who came from down 6-0 in the nats home park. where the fans were already celebrating victory. stole it out from underneath their closer. won for each other leaving it all on the field. along with a quiet stadium filing out...

for the first time since 1958 (now that's a fine year if i may say so myself), the 2 previous world series winners meet for the nlcs. damn. bring it on.
