KingMidget's Ramblings

Pull up a chair. Let's talk.

Remarkable


It’s simple.

Two years ago, my lifelong love affair with the Giants culminated in their World Series victory.  I didn’t get to any of the post-season games that year.  Money, time, other obligations — too many things got in the way.

This year, they made it to the postseason again and I decided I wasn’t going to miss it again this year.  I saw their opening loss to the Reds in the first round.  After they lost the second game, I despaired.  This incredible team then rolled off three wins, all in Cincinnati, to make it to the League Championship Series.

Three out of the first four games they looked absolutely pathetic.  I toyed with going to games and ended up going last night to see their Game 6 triumph — best time I’ve had at a baseball game ever.  For the past four hours, I’ve been planted in front of the TV, waiting.  And waiting.  And, now they’re in the World Series again.  Once again, three victories in a row to end and win a series.

World Series, here we come.  Now, if only I can figure out a way to justify the $400 a ticket cost.

    I thought of you today when I checked out the new John Grisham novel from the library (“The Racketeer”). It’s gotten good reviews. I do like a good legal thriller, and the last one I read was “One Night in Bridgeport.” 🙂
