San Francisco Giants
Dishonesty weighs heavily on the soul, and also on ballpark walls, apparently. The bronze plaque that commemorated Barry Bonds’ record-breaking 756th homer is missing, and the Giants say they have no idea who took it. May we suggest stronger glue? Mix up some Elmer’s with some HGH, that oughta do it.
Giants And Tigers Announce Justin Verlander And Buster Posey Mega-Contracts, Remind Us That Contract Signings Are Incredibly Boring Events
The Tigers and Giants both had big contract news to announce today – the teams locked up stars Justin Verlander and Buster Posey, respectively, for a combined total of nearly $350 million. The news was so big, in fact, that the teams felt the need to commemorate it with photos. Those photos, though, only show that when it comes to these sorts of stories, pictures are worth significantly less than 1,000 words.
Those San Francisco Giants are just so damn zany. Lest you forgot, the reigning World Series champs are full of eccentric characters, like the freaky franchise Tim Lincecum and the Reverend Hunter Pence. Here they are, doing their best impressions of each other.
“Giants, Romo Agree To Two-Year, $9 Million Contract” Says Unintentionally Confusing Headline Everywhere
YouTube user Extra5our chronicled some of the rioting that occurred in San Francisco following the Giants’ win over the Tigers, and this particular video is fantastic. In it, he films a MUNI bus stalled on the corner of McAllister and Larkin, with orange and black-clad fans gleefully using it as their own personal jungle gym. But one commuter can’t be bothered by all of the mayhem going on around him: he sits there, stonefaced and texting, while his fellow San Franciscans go to town. More, after the jump.
Thanks to their unexpected sweep of the Tigers, the San Francisco Giants are your World Series champions for the second time in three years. And you’re going to want to watch the parade live, right here. Why? Welp, if we’re using 2010′s parade as a barometer, things are about to get creepy. The parade starts at 2 PM Eastern. Video, after the jump.
After the San Francisco Giants won the World Series yesterday, they partook in some classically bro-y celebratory tactics – group dog piling, champagne, the works. Here are some of the best photos from the brofest.
It’s a tradition nearly as time-honored as championship sporting events, if significantly less noble: fan riots centered around those championship sporting events. So when a team wins the World Series, fans get crazy. Last night in San Francisco, it was no different. Video evidence after the jump.
Chinbutted, really. Erin Andrews was down on the field conducting post-championship interviews when she spoke with San Francisco 2nd baseman Marco Sctuaro, a man involved in his fair share of kerfluffles this postseason. But he was caught up in plenty of heroic moments too, posting an impressive .328/.377/.391 for the postseason.
Didn’t watch any sports last night? Oh. Well then. Guess you don’t care about things like the clinching game of the World Series (though we guess you’d be in some good company if you didn’t care about the World Series), or two of the best quarterbacks in football facing off. Your loss. But if you’ve seen the light and regret what you’ve done, we’re here to help: read after the jump to catch up on a pretty loaded Sunday night.
