They Might Be Giants

Congrats to the local baseball heroes, the SF Giants, who became just the third team to come back from a 3-1 deficit in a league championship series to thump the Cardinals and pitcher Kyle Lohse, who grew up and went to high school up here near Chico. Should be a good matchup between the Giants and the well-rested Tigers, who dispatched noted assclown Donald Trump's pet Yankees.

So here's to what should be a good Series. The Giants have the upper hand on classic goofball personalities, with Posey, Panda, Pagan, Romo, and the rest of the weirdbeards. The Tigers are peaking at just the right time, and Verlander is the proverbial fireballer of the moment, with a 7-game playoff wininng streak going right now.

Either way, of the final four teams, this was the matchup that America wanted, whether they knew it or not. The last thing you needed was to watch the Steinbrenners bully, borrow, and derp their way to yet another store-bought champeenship. Buckle up and watch people actually have fun playing a kids' game, rather than some button-down pseudo-corporate dress-code bullshit.
