Return of the Giants Playoffs
There's nothing better than baseball in mid-October if your home team happens to be in the playoffs.
After winning the World Series two years ago for the first time ever in San Francisco, it feels strange and unnatural for the Giants to be back in the postseason again so soon. Longtime, dedicated San Francisco Giants fans were used to their team being almost as hapless as the Chicago Cubs.
I am not complaining. Buster (Parker) Posey is a genius athlete to watch, and the late season additions of Ryan Theriot, Marco Scutaro, Xavier Nady and Hunter Pence feels magical. This could be fun.
