our good friend alyssa milano stands behind her giants in game 1 of the world series tonight.
this will probably be as good as a pitching matchup that we’ll see in our lifetimes with timmy the freak taking on cliff lee at 5pm PT tonight. when tim lincecum and his 5-11, 170lb body tried to enter the giants clubhouse at ATT park the first time, they thought he was the bat boy.
we’ll need contributions from everyone to beat the rangers. the shaky offensive performance in the NLCS will not be enough to win. buster posey, pat burrell and aubrey huff need to be more productive for sure.
i went with marcos and isaac to the city today to watch the blue angels performing for fleet week. i had forgotten he saw them before, but i figure he would enjoy it more now that he is older and also is starting to like the car/plane/train type of entertainment.
isaac and marcos are waiting for the show to start. marcos has some ear protection so the thunderous afterburners of the F/A-18 Super Hornet don’t blow his eardrums out. i suppose i am getting old and going deaf because the planes don’t seem as loud as they used to be when i watched them fly at moffett field back in the day.
the blue angels came and did their usual array of precision flying and acrobatics. will they move to the F-35 at some point after flying the F/A-18’s for 20 years already?
when the planes left the immediate vicinity of marina green to circle back for another flyby, marcos took the opportunity to jump in the sand and play. i guess he’s still at that age where playing with tiny, ground-up rocks is more exciting than seeing a supersonic fighter jet doing barrel rolls at 400 feet above the bay.
tim lincecum fanned 14 braves last night in game 1 of the NLDS. it’s impressive because i was only 90% of his skill when i was 170lbs (playing with a tennis ball)(against sub-par competition)(in milpitas).
then, i saw a picture of his hand at the high point in his release. look at his thumb!
WTF is that? it’s like some mechanical bionic triple-jointed appendage.
where would the giants be without their stars tim lincecum and buster posey this year? at home hanging out with the DODGERS!
