The Real (or Desperate?) Ballplayers of San Francisco, Feat. Lincecum with Snooki Hair

This just in: the Giants are going to have their own reality show next season. Reality show.  Diamond Girl is mildly disgusted but also mildly intrigued.  I do have a few questions:

Who’s going to rock the Snooki hair-do?  Barry?  Or Timmy, since he’s half-way there already?

Is it going to have an alliterative name like, “Geeping up with the Giant-ashians”?  Or they could name it the Real Ballplayers of San Francisco (as opposed to, you know, the fake ballplayers.  And the fake housewives, for that matter).  Will there be the quintessential meltdowns there always are on contest shows?  If so, my money is on J-Sanch as the perfect candidate.  Will there be fights between the neat freaks who want the clubhouse clean and the guys who couldn’t care less?  Will the cameras be let into closed door meetings with Brian Sabean?  Because that may be the only thing that will incite me to watch.

J-Sanch next season…?

I’m going to have to get on YouTube or Hulu and watch some Hard Knocks to get a sense of what this is all about.  Somehow I don’t know if the “poof” would fit underneath a football helmet, so I doubt they included that mandatory aspect of reality TV.

p.s.  Rangers?  If you’re out there reading this, I respectfully suggest that you extend JD’s contract.  Pronto.  I think it’s a very important thing y’all need should deal with sooner rather than later.  But that’s just me.

To Watchers of Glee and Why Diamond Girl is Disappearing to the Deserts of Africa (aka, NYC)

Sorry for the third person deal in the title, by the way.  It’s incredibly cheesy and corny but necessary in this situation.  Forgive me, please.

Graphic designer nightmare.  Those colors really clash.

Anyway, that was a good game.  A very good game.  I love it when they win low-scoring games, because that feels like the real Giants and if they’re going to win it all, I think that will be how.  (Not jinxing anything by saying that.  Can you even jinx something without believing in jinxes?)  But I was sort of annoyed the entire game because it was an afternoon game reportedly because of a Glee re-run this evening.  Glee re-run.  I’m not a Glee watcher or a Glee hater.  I am generally ambiguous on the topic.  But seriously.  Playoff baseball is important in a way Glee re-runs are not.  Just to add insult to injury the broadcasters kept hyping the show.  And the fact that a random football game got more TV viewers than a historical pitching matchup in a playoff game?  I’m not usually a confrontational person but I would like to confront people who watch football or Glee over baseball.

Anything can happen in baseball, obviously, and the Phillies and Yankees are far from eliminated, but who actually thought we might get a Giants vs. Rangers (and therefore Buster vs. Bengie) World Series, when Bengie got traded to an AL Team?  I think it crossed all our minds but we didn’t think it could really happen.  It could really happen.  And it is Totally Time for Texas, so…

Speaking of the Bronx Bombers, I’m heading out to Yankee Town (NYC)  tomorrow morning for a week and will have limited internet (aka, few or no blog posts) and probably no television (aka, I will not be able to watch games).  You would think I’m going to the desert in Africa or something, from that description, but I’m going to be living in the Stone Age in one of the world’s biggest cities.  Life is weird, sometimes.

I’m planning to make the most of the trip and take a tour of Shea Stad–sorry, City Field. (Update: just realized that silly auto-correct changed it from Citi to City.  Yeah, I know it’s not spelled that way.  But instead of changing it I would like to display the beauty of auto-correct.  Observe and enjoy.)  I also may attempt to climb the fences of Yankee Stadium because they don’t do tours doing the postseason and I’m not buying tickets because I’m hoping to spend my life savings on something a little more worthy.  (What’s more worthy than MLB postseason tickets?  I’ll get back to you on that.)

If anyone has any on-topic (baseball related) or off-topic (not baseball related, ::cue gasps::)recommendations for places to go in NYC, feel free to leave ‘em in the comments.  And I will be back here to tell ya’ll about my idea for a Long Hair vs. Short Hair World Series, sooner or later.

X’s and O’s to all,
