  • Bruce Bochy’s championship resume ranks among game’s best (NBC on Yahoo Sports)

    30 Oct 2014 | 7:01 am
    He keeps a pretty low profile. It’s only on nights like Wednesday, when a party erupts in the clubhouse and the Giants are once again kings of Major League Baseball, that you really zero in on what manager Bruce Bochy has accomplished leading this club. With the Giants’ 3-2 victory over the Royals in Wednesday’s Game 7, Bochy became just the 10th manager in history to win three World Series titles. The other nine form a legendary list that spans the decades – Walter Alston, Sparky Anderson, Miller Huggins, Tony La Russa, Connie Mack, Joe McCarthy, John McGraw, Casey Stengel, and Joe…
  • Bumgarner rides to the rescue for World Series win (Reuters)

    30 Oct 2014 | 1:48 am
    By Larry Fine KANSAS CITY Missouri (Reuters) - The San Francisco Giants rode workhorse left-hander Madison Bumgarner all the way to their third World Series crown in five years with a Game Seven victory over the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday. Ace starter Bumgarner worked his magic as a reliever this time, coming out of the bullpen to throw five shutout innings and earn the save in a 3-2 win that clinched the best-of-seven Fall Classic. It was the eighth World Series title for the Giants and third in five seasons after victories in 2010 and 2012. ...

  • Ten best moments from the San Francisco Giants' championship run (Big League Stew)

    29 Oct 2014 | 11:59 pm
    The San Francisco Giants are back on top of the mountain in Major League Baseball. With a 3-2 victory against the Kansas City Royals in World Series Game 7, they earned their third World Series championship in five seasons and their eighth in franchise history.  For the Giants, it was their toughest postseason road during this recent stretch of success. As the National League's second wild-card team, they had to go through the Pittsburgh Pirates on the road just to make the NLDS. Once in the tournament, they eliminated the NL's top two seeds, the Washington Nationals and St. Louis Cardinals,…

    29 Oct 2014 | 3:25 am
    From The Independent, some news about The Pope:The theories of evolution and the Big Bang are real and God is not “a magician with a magic wand”, Pope Francis has declared. Speaking at the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, the Pope made comments which experts said put an end to the “pseudo theories” of creationism and intelligent design that some argue were encouraged by his predecessor, Benedict XVI. Francis explained that both scientific theories were not incompatible with the existence of a creator – arguing instead that they “require it”.Up until those last half dozen words, I…

    20 Oct 2014 | 3:16 am
    A few days ago the Post-Gazette editorial board published this:Conservative members of Congress may not be ready to acknowledge the reality of climate change, but the Pentagon sees it for what it is — a threat to national security. On Monday, the Pentagon issued a report assessing the immediate dangers of climate change. And here's the report itself.And this is from Secretary Hagel's forward:The responsibility of the Department of Defense is the security of our country. That requires thinking ahead and planning for a wide range of contingencies.Among the future trends that will impact our…

    Welp. This magical little creature is now five months old. FIVE. MONTHS. OLD. I don't really know how that happened. As of this moment, she's still very tall for her age. So tall, in fact, that she's wearing 12 month clothing. Her sister was always a big baby, but not like this. Alexis wore one size ahead all the way until she was four. Never two sizes ahead. Mila is a very proficient roller, but she seems to have derailed in her quest to be mobile. There is something about feet that captivates her muchly, so instead of figuring out how to get to that thing over there, she's now focused on…

    "F*ck*ng racist b*tch," the words reverberated through the dark, empty streets. What he didn't know was that I had no idea what he looked like. All I knew is that it was dark, I was alone, and there were footsteps behind me. I crossed the street to get away from the footsteps because that's what you do when you are a woman walking alone in the dark. You clutch your purse, put your finger on the panic button on your phone, and you cross the street. There's a video that hit the internet this week that shows a woman being harassed as she walks the streets of New York. There has been a lot of…

    When it comes to Halloween, I figure I get one shot. I get exactly one chance to pick out the most perfect costume for a kid. Once that second Halloween rolls around, kids have opinions and stuff.  When Alexis was tiny, that one shot was spent on a Screamapillar costume. It. Was. Perfect. The little girl who loved to scream was absolutely the human version of the Screamapillar from The Simpsons. Adorable but screamy and particularily nightmarish after the sun went down.  Then came Mila. I spent weeks pondering my one shot, but then learned something vital -- Alexis wanted to do…

    I have a confession to make. Sit down for this, please. You guys, I forgot how amazing Nutella is. I KNOW! I don't know how it happened, but I discovered that I had completely stopped dipping everything in Nutella. I was Nutella-less. Devoid of happiness. Lacking the greatest things in life. It wasn't intentional. I had just sort of stopped visiting the alter of Nutella. It took a request from the husband's co-workers to get me back on track. I'm there now, so all of the things involve Nutella. As they should. This is a variation of the Black Bottom Cupcakes that I have made over and over…

    First off....Where the hell has that team been for 4 years!!!??? Gawd dang that was an awesome win!!!!! Wow!! I haven't enjoyed a Steelers game like that in a long ...long time :terriblebeer:. I'm usually the 1st to call 'em to the carpet, so I'll be the 1st to congratulate the Steelers on a great win!!! Do I think Tomlin and Colbert can make this a common occurence....meh.... Hell NO! But, I wish they would. I would gladly eat crow to see the Steelers win, but on the same token, I can't sit back and accept what they have been of late and I believe will continue to be until changes are made.

    Has anyone noticed the focus that Huntington seems to have with the Cleveland Indians and to a lesser extent the Yankees? Just recently, for example, we signed or traded for Stinson, Sellers. We released Axford, Gomez. Just some recent samples. Burnett, Martin were Yankees. Again, just samples. There are 29 other teams out there. Am I over-analyzing or does Huntington, who CAME from Cleveland have blinders on?
