Everyone’s getting all end-of the-year now and the NY Times is no exception. Neither am I, for that matter, as you will see below.
The Times had an article yesterday titled Reliving the Best (and Worst) Ads of 2011 and it’s actually (yes, I’m surprised. I’m not the biggest Times fan myself.) a good, fun piece with the fantastic details of each campaign’s ad agency, when they could sleuth it out. I probably just liked it because it mentioned my favorite Chrysler campaign, but that’s beside that point.

This is, of course, more than a teensy bit bittersweet, seeing as neither Andres Torres or Cody Ross are Giants anymore, but the whole cuticles thing is probably the only reason I stuck with the Giants all last season and through this offseason.

Which is to say, for all those people listing all the big moments they will remember Torres and Ross for? This is mine.
