I’m at the risk of turning my blog into a sports page. I’m also aware that I’m one game away from either seeing history being made from the Giants (given the rare occasions a Game 7 winner-take-all championship has been won by away teams), or seeing them lose like hell and me looking like more of an ass than I already am.
Yeah, I’ve seen the stats in these kinds of Game 7s, and how it favors the Giants, well…let’s just say it makes the rectum of a warthog look quite appealing.
Yeah, I’m also aware of the last time an away team won a Game 7 on the road in the World Series. I think only four guys on the this orange-and-black squad were alive. Also, disco music is cool.
On top of all this baseball mess, girlie will be taking her butt to L.A. 12 hours from now for her birthday vacation. I was going to go a day earlier, but decided to stay around town in anticipation of seeing (and maybe hanging with) some people going crazy on the streets. (I don’t live in SF, but my town is quite the hotbed of Giants fans.) Instead, crap to the tenth power. I also stayed because I was being a superstitious twat and thought staying home = Giants clinching win. Happened in 2010 and 2012. Thought it would happen this year, because, you know, “even-year magic.”
But now I’m getting tired of worrying over this team. It’s also cramping my birthday plans here. Guess this is what I get for being born at the end of a month where a World Series may involve one of your favorite teams. This is also what I get for following a baseball team in the first place. (For the record, it’s all Tim Lincecum’s fault. That summer of 2010, that long-haired Hapa honey came my way and had me spellbound.) I’m still gonna root for these Giants, win or lose 15 hours from now. And since I’ve only been a fan for a good four years and haven’t followed them during times when they have lost the World Series (yet? :O), I have to say I’m fucking spoiled with these guys. Because you can’t get any better than seeing your team win two championships and three pennants in the past four years. Fuck, the damn Dodgers and A’s would kill for that. Hell, I’m also a Penguins fan, and despite all the hockey heads picking them to win the Stanley Cup every year, they still only have that one ‘ship, five years ago.
Yeah, I know the Penguins won a Game 7 away from home in the Finals five years ago. And I also know that 30 years ago from then, the Pirates won a Game 7 away from home in the World Series. And I’m not writing all this to bring a little luck to the Giants. Hell, they don’t even wear gold-and-black and aren’t from Pittsburgh. So that means they’re SCREWEDOHSHIT.
I can’t even hate on the Royals (even up to now) because they’re actually not a team to hate on. They’re not as hate-inducing as those media fucks of FOX, MLBN, BSPN, and the rest that continue to rim out the hell out of the Royals. (Yes, we get it–they’re good. That’s why they’re in the World Series, duh.) If there’s one silver lining in the otherwise bullshit media coverage, it’s that I’m thankful for not continuing with completing my Journalism degree. Because if I did, I may have to end up taking a media job where I have to kiss the ass of someone/something that doesn’t deserve it, while intentionally ignoring the ones that deserve some respect because the people above me told me to.
This 2014 Giants team, given how things have played out for them this season, should not be here. This World Series. This Game 7 of a World Series. Once NL West leaders early in the season, they eventually saw their arch-rival Dodgers take that division lead and that crown, and settled for a #2 Wild Card spot at season’s end. They weren’t given a chance against the Pirates in the Wild Card game. Same thing in the NLDS & NLCS. And even in this World Series–the one they’re not supposed to be a part of in the first place. (And, hell, you gotta give the Royals mad props, too. They too aren’t supposed to be here. Two teams that shouldn’t be in a World Series, that’s still not going to get as many viewers as the latest Nicki Garbaj video? Talk about a major troll job going on in baseball.)
I’d go on about this damn team, but I feel like if they do lose tomorrow, this entry alone will solidify my LOL ass-ness. (That, and it will prove once and for all to never, EVER allow life jokes like Kimbecile K-trash and Kuntface West in your park during a WS. I saw that bullshit fuckery go down in Game 5, and knew that this was a curse far worse than a Sports Illustrated cover.) Oh well, if the ship goes down, at least my eyebrows will be bangin’. I just got a good wax job where I got them thin. I’m not a fan of bushy brows.
I’m also not a fan of worrying about sports teams where all I can do is hope for the best when shit gets thick. I’m gonna enjoy my 7-hour drive to L.A. later today, not worry too much over this Game 7, and focus on a
whatever happy birthday to me the next day. See you in maybe 10 days. I’m on vacation after this entry.
And this is all that matters
