Wow. Here I thought the name “Giants” meant something. I thought it implied that the San Francisco Giants baseball team was “bigger” than other teams. Yet here we are, a day before the World Series is set to begin and these so-called Giants are just calling it quits? “Oh look at us, we won Game 7 and the NLCS, so we’re just going to pack it up and play the Detroit Tigers in the World Series because we don’t have to play the St. Louis Cardinals anymore.” Are you serious? That’s how you want to win, Giants?
For the first time in Major League Baseball history, a team could actually be as big as its name suggests and say, “You know what? One more game, winner takes all.” Sure, the Giants “don’t have to do that” and the league “wouldn’t let them do that” and it wouldn’t be “fair to the fans or the players”, but come on! That’s the worst string of logic I’ve ever seen!
Fine, Giants. Go play in your stupid, insignificant World Series. It’ll always have an asterisk next to it anyway. Years from now, I’ll be standing in Cooperstown with my grandson and my smoking hot 22-year old Blasian girlfriend and I’ll say, “Oh, the 2012 World Series? Yeah, that’s when the Giants were too afraid to play the Cardinals again. Don’t worry, nobody cares about that World Series anymore. Especially not since Nancy Pelosi sold California to the Kardashians.” So yeah, congrats Giants.
