The San Francisco Giants are 2014 World Series Champs!
And what a game 7 it was! The final score ended up being 3-2…very fittingly a close one for what’s been a close, back-and-forth series.
Why I’m a SF Giants Fan
I became a passive Giants fan when I moved to the SF Bay Area in 2007. After finally going to a game at AT & T Park, I began to really like the Giants. Then, after watching the Giants clinch the 2010 World Series victory on a huge big screen in front of SF City Hall with ~ 10,000 other people, I became hooked on the Giants…an official fan. (for the record, I sat much closer to the big screen than the pic below)
Then the Giants won the World Series (against Detroit) again in 2012, further solidifying my luv.
But this year’s win was something extra special for me. For some reason, I really got into baseball this year more than I ever have. While living in the Bay, I watched almost every Giants game, either on TV or in person. Doing that, you can’t help but get attached to the team and the outcome.
Likewise, earlier this year I got to go watch pre-game batting practice live, right on the field! That’s something not many people ever get to do, so I was stoked! Meeting Hunter Pence was also a cool experience that day. What a nice (and tall) dude that Hunter is.
So anyway…after being so invested in Giants baseball this year, it was so very cool to see them come out on top. Especially considering they ended up barely making the playoffs as a wildcard team.
Yeah….I’m kinda stoked :)
