I bought new sunglasses at the always fantastic H&M yesterday. I called them my Victoria Beckham shades, but after last night’s game, I think they might actually be rose-colored.
These may look black to you, but trust me, they will make you see the world (and especially Giants) in a whole new, home-run-hitting light. But! In case you are considering coming to steal them from me after my tirade about their awesomeness, know that I am highly trained in the fine art of… origami. Not a good idea.
Madison Bumgarner rocked pretty much everything, including hitting his first Major League home run to tie up the game in the third inning. It was the Giants first long ball at home since Gregor Blanco did the feat – yep, homers are a feat ‘round here – on May 14th. Not to be one-upped, Brandon Belt hit another one later in the night and along with Madison’s 12 strikeouts over nearly eight innings, they led San Francisco to a 6-3 win over Houston, who might be AL or NL at this point. I’m not entirely clear on that. (Just. Kidding. People. With. No. Sense. Of. Humor.)
According to the San Francisco Chronicle, that right there was the longest at-home homer drought since the Astros in 1990. History just happened here, guys. (Also, yes. Astros. Who we’re playing. I bet they have an innate remembrance of that, even though none of the players are the same, so they subconsciously felt badly for the Giants and allowed those home runs. This makes so much sense now.)
According to Dave Flemming, I tweet too much like a valley girl. Victoria Beckham sunglassed valley girl, I might add.
p.s. Melky is back! Melky is back! Melky is back!
Why the Astros Helped the Giants Break the Drought (Don’t Worry, It Was Subconscious)
