735 - NLCS 2010 - Game 4
Ruíz stands in against Bumgarner as Posey waits for the swing and miss.
Took my dad and wife (who wore her Phillies gear) to Game 4 of the Giants-Phils series. Incredible game, with ridiculous lead changes and a walk-off SF by Juan Uribe off of Roy Oswalt, who had come on in relief. Yay playoff baseball!

734 - Shameful Banners
Gilded cubic zirconium trophies for a team that has never had any real achievement to hang from its rafters. Every time I look at them I can't help but remember each and every playoff collapse, from Ozolinsh not shooting in OT on a 3-on-1 in OT to Robert Lang with 34 seconds left.

745 - Blurry Bachelor
Pretty much how Sammy saw the world for the rest of the evening... through a slight fog.
Just a cameraphone picture today... was a bit occupied with this man's celebration.
742 - World Series Game 1
Went up to my rooftop to see the introductions. Great view.

747 - Fear the Beard
My neighbor's pumpkin seemed the perfect way to commemorate the Giants' first championship in my lifetime. It doesn't make me forget 1987, 1989, 1993, 2002, or 2003 (Did I mention Scott Fucking Speizio?) , but it makes it a lot less painful. The 8-year old kid who wanted to be Will Clark (down to the eye black) and cried after Game 1 in 1989 is still jumping up and down somewhere in the back of my head.

755 - Under the Overpass
Underneath I-80's westbound terminus... Turn around, and eventually end up at Pattison, NJ, and the George Washington Bridge.
