A Very Thankful Giants Season

It’s been a good year to be a Giants fan, obviously. While we all have our own personal reasons to be thankful, here is what the Third Street Kings crew have to be thankful for with this season.

Mac:

  • Matt Cain.
  • Buster Posey’s general existence.
  • Sergio Romo’s no-dot slider.
  • George Kontos’ slider.
  • “YOU’RE GOIN’ TO JAIL NOW.”
  • Rev. Pence.
  • Madison Bumgarner’s home run.
  • Ryan Vogelsong constantly telling people’s expectations to suck it.
  • Buster Posey.
  • Santiago Casilla at-bats.
  • A team that never gave up in elimination games.
  • Buster Posey.
  • Dave and Jon and Kruk and Kuip
  • Gangnam Styling at the Civic Center with confetti flying around in the air.
  • Matt Cain.

Britt:

  • Buster Posey. Buster Posey. Buster Posey. More importantly, that he’s healthy and whole and better than any of us expected in our most feverish fangirl dreams.
  • Not being Dodger fans.
  • Matt Cain and Madison Bumgarner being Giants for many years to come.
  • Buster Posey.
  • Mays and McCovey just hangin’ around ’cause they can. (And also then doing things like giving Angel Pagan a bit of coaching on over the shoulder basket catches.)
  • Best ballpark in the world. Errbody else can shut up, they’re wrong if they disagree.
  • Buster Posey.
  • Dave Righetti the pitcher whisperer.
  • Buster Posey.
  • And in conclusion, Buster Posey.

Reuben: Dave & Jon & Kruk & Kuip; Alex Pavlovic’s net-savvy excellence; the rich history of the Giants org; Gangnam style; everything that that clown from the Detroit Free Press complained about (Irish coffee, build-a-bear, etc)

Corn:

  • Buster Posey.
  • Matt Cain.
  • Matt Cain’s perfect game.
  • Sergio Romo.
  • Marco Scutaro in the rain.
  • The Giants winning the WS again so that I can replace my lost 2010 WS cap, since that particular style is apparently only made for championship teams (true story).
  • Brandon Belt discovering twitter.
  • Barry Zito getting to play in the World Series.
  • A belated entry: Burriss finally getting cut from the roster. This time for sure!
