Viva Gigantes!

Romo & Posey
world series champions again! that makes two in three years. mad props to the Giants and to the city of san francisco. what a ride, thanks for taking us on the journey. the 2012 giants persevered and came to life when the stakes were highest. the Giants organization outdid their rivals when it came to making the right moves off the field and in the club house. scutaro became the "blockbuster," pence turned into the pre-game preacher, the pitching staff was tweaked and impeccable during the postseason, panda hit .500 in the series with a babe ruth cameo and above all, the TEAM came first, everyone made sacrifices to achieve the greater goal. this was a team that had commodore, character and confidence in becoming what jim leyland called, "the main attraction." they provided results, how could you not get behind this team?

these Giants proved that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. there were multiple heroes throughout the postseason. much of the roster reflected a more homegrown approach. the management also sprinkled in a few key additions and trades. there were other times throughout the year that made the outsiders doubtful. but if we as a generation look back at this world series champion, we will do so with fondness. this team performed at a 1966 orioles level when acknowledging the dominance of their pitching. when we reminisce about the excitement playoff baseball runs can create, the 2012 Giants will rival the paths taken by the 2011 cardinals, 2004 red sox and the 1985 royals...

orange and black, trick or treat, october is the time of fall classics and halloween... was it destiny? because there's a strong likelihood we'll hear the word dynasty being thrown around now and this group of Giants definitely earned it. we rode the wave of six elimination games into flying out on brooms. i tip my SF cap to the manager, bruce bochy and to the entire 2012 san francisco Giants, congratulations. world series champion again!

it turned out to be a giant year ~eightychoices
