|los Gigantes de San Francisco|
the league championship series have started in major league baseball. regardless of major league baseball being as mainstream as it gets, it's hard not to embrace this 2012 giants team that is filled with its share of magic and a cast of alternative characters.
after pulling of an improbable comeback against the cincinnati reds (down two games to none and then winning three in a row on the road to advance), they've earned the right to host the NLCS against last years champions, the st. louis cardinals. both of these storied teams have had the odds stacked against them in their quest to advance through the post season. it's only fitting that the last two world champions should meet.
the bay area is going to be rocking tonight as game one gets under way a little after 5:00 pm pst. you couldn't ask for a better setting than at&t park to kick off what is sure to be a memorable battle between two tested teams. this seven game series will probably produce some feverish entertainment along the way considering what's unfolded thus far in the playoffs. throw into the mix the fact that st. louis is a baseball city and san francisco belongs to the giants, and you have the recipe for an electric october atmosphere. for many, the national league is a purer form of baseball and with guys like tim lincecum (two time cy young award winner), matt cain (pitched a perfect game) and buster posey (nl batting champ), it's sure to be a thrilling series. it's time to get rowdy orange and black... go Giants!
