Today began with football and will end with baseball. Rob and I are trying to carry our karma across sports and help the Giants to their first bay area victory.

Nick - heh yes you were right
Posted by Brian Poulsen on October 28, 2002 10:44 AM
Good call Nick. In fact, I can’t think of a better way for that series to unfold than it did. Talk about heartbreak.

walt, doesn’t sam owe you something?
Posted by Rachelle Bowden on October 28, 2002 11:48 AM
Actually Walt would owe Sam something.

I think walt has to replace the giants on his upper logo with a dancing monkey or something.
Posted by Rachelle Bowden on October 28, 2002 12:25 PM
I agree.. I want my dancing monkey
Posted by Sam Oh on October 28, 2002 12:57 PM
I would owe Sam something. If I’d agreed to his bet. But since the terms were never laid out in full, no such agreement took place. =-) Hence, there will be no monkey.

I think Alphonse and the bears say it best.

Where’s Derek? He deserves to deliver an “I told you so” as well.
Congratulations to all the Angels fans.

Now we turn our attention to the NBA.

:P Hibernate until spring training. Or at least March Madness.
Actually, go 49ers!

I must say it was quite an exciting series. I was ready to turn it off by the middle of the 6th game when I (and probably everyone else except the hardcore Angels fans) thought the Giants had it wrapped up. I read an article somewhere that NorCal’s psyche would have been damaged by a World Series win anyway — so it’s probably for the best.
But yeah, bring on basketball!
(And as for football, ahem, I’m making my prediction right now that the Chargers will be the first team to play in their home city’s Super Bowl…)

Didn’t the 49ers play at Stanford? Which is basically the home city, for all intents and purposes.
Posted by Sean Peisert on October 29, 2002 1:11 PM
It’s a stretch, Sean. But within the metropolis, I guess. Technically no, though.
Posted by Derek Gomez on October 29, 2002 2:13 PM
Home city or home stadium?
Posted by Scott Yager on October 29, 2002 3:11 PM
Yeah, good point. Even though Palo Alto isn’t in SF, it’s even a farther cry from their home stadium. If [when] San Diego makes it to the Super Bowl in 2003, it’ll be in their home stadium too.
