The World Series begins tonight amid Giant madness in San Francisco and a bunch of stuff about fearing facial hair. We were at Disneyland on Sunday and about every 5th person had Giants gear after the thrilling Game 6 win the night before (Swing the bat Ryan!). I'm not saying I saw any jerseys with price tags still on them, but the bandwagon appeared a touch full.
From all accounts, the crowds at AT&T have been fantastic and electric and tonight promises to be no different with the battles of the Aces in Game 1. Cliff Lee, with his ridiculous run of post-season gems, takes the hill for the Claw and Antlers while Tim Lincecum, with his terrible hair, takes the mound for the Giants.
Here's hoping for a fun and exciting series. My family is all abuzz about the Giants in the World Series (their celebration after Wilson punched out Howard was really great to see), but I am not sure I can pull against my BFF Nellie Cruz. Should be fun to see the 2 Western Divisions battle it out.
Game is scheduled to start at 4:57 Pacific, but there will certainly be some ceremonies and intros that will push that back.
Enjoy our last week or so of baseball!
PS: Warriors season also opens tonight...Go Dubs!
