As a native of the Bay Area, I'd like to take the time to take a break away from politics and just congradulate the Giants for winning the World Series two times in three years. It would have been interesting for the Detroit Tigers to win the World Series but no biggy, at least they went to the World Series. And that's a great motivation for Michigan because they can continue to shut Mitt Romney off for saying, "Let Detroit Go Bankrupt." (oops, sorry. I shouldn't have talked politics. hahaha)
While the Tigers previously won four games in a row, the Giants beat them four games in a row in return. I guess that's what the Tigers and others in the American league get for shutting out the A's as a lot of us in the Bay Area were DYING to see another Battle of the Bay (without an earthquake of course).
Here is the great video showing why Giants fans should never stop giving up:
12:17AM EDT October 29. 2012 - DETROIT – They took the hard, winding road to the World Series, then discovered the direct path.By the way, did any of you guys see Pablo Sandoval winning the SWEET car from General Motors? He won that, in addition to a big trophy! Jealous!
The San Francisco Giants, who survived six elimination games in the playoffs, closed out a four-game sweep of the Detroit Tigers with a 4-3 victory in 10 innings Sunday night to win their second World Series in three years.
Marco Scutaro drove in Ryan Theriot with a two-out RBI single in the 10th for the winning score. Theriot had opened the inning with a single off Detroit closer Phil Coke, pitching his second inning, and advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt.
