What amazingly lucky fans we are. I’ve gotten to blog about two World Series wins and now, two World Series parades. I want to pinch myself, because that is marvelous and crazy. Hats off to the 2012 Giants – an absolutely wonderful team that will leave us with memories for years to come.
After the parade was over, we got to walk down the middle of Market and confetti fell like snow. Truly magical.
And why yes, I am carrying a coffee cup in each hand in my photo-op with The Adorable Little Brother. No parade would be complete without two coffees. Money on Hunter Pence agreeing with me.
It’s foggy. And rainy. And Cliff Lee still hasn’t signed anywhere. So it’s the perfect day to be nostalgic. I was looking through my New York photos from October and found this one:
One of my favorite parts of baseball is when relievers- especially closers- come up to bat. So I pulled out my iPod and took a picture of Brian batting in the NLCS, against Philly. (Correct me if I’m misremembering and it was against Atlanta.) It was such a fun moment and high-tension series. In a way, I think beating Philly was more of a triumph than beating Texas. And I think the photo’s kind of great. The Beard + Batting Helmet.
Now that I’ve gotten the nostalgia over with, it’s time to sit back and wait for Cliffy to sign. With the Rangers, of course. And he will decide a six year deal is better than a nine year deal any day. Positive affirmations, only!
Who else is kind of diggin’ the sunglasses?
