Tim Lincecum

One more round

Brian Wilson tried to make it a little torturous at the end there, but it wasn't.

Before the game, I thought it was going to be low-scoring (like pretty much everyone else) and when Timmy gave up 2, I just wanted the Giants to make Cliff Lee throw lots of pitches so he'd leave and they could score some runs on the bullpen. However, I didn't know that the Rangers are supposed to have a good bullpen. I just assume everyone's bullpen is shitty. :P As it turns out, there were so many runs I didn't know what to do with myself. I think Tessa is luck. Gotta get her to watch tonight's game too!

Did anyone see Timmy sidling up to Zito to ask for some weed in the top of the 6th? And by weed, I mean chewing tobacco (ewwwwww). It looked like a much shadier exchange than it was. :P I uploaded a video of it, but it's still "processing". How much processing is needed for a 30 second video???

[ Edit: Okay, it's finally done! (As usual with MLB clips, please don't post publicly, share by IM, email, locked post, etc. with this warning.)

See the shadiness??? :) ]

Tati got to see her favourites (Timmy, Matt Cain and Buster) and I was telling Tessa about her breaking Matt Cain's hand off and showing her the bobblehead and Tati wanted it, but I didn't want her to break Cain's hand again *shrieks* So I gave her Zito instead. :P But then she got confused and she started doing Brian Wilson's OMR salute he does after saves and... I've only shown that to her ONCE like 2 weeks ago! The brainwashing is taking! :)

Of all people, Joe Thornton got a hat trick last night! This captaincy thing is messing with his head. :P Also Joe Pavelski's wife produced a little person yesterday.

Brian Wilson

Giants articles

Articles for archiving. :)

Brian Wilson's beard is 100% unnatural. There's lots of footage/photos of him with scruff, it's so obvious. :P

See, this is why Buster Posey slash creeps me out. The guy is pretty much 45!

I kind of like him more when he struggles. Obviously I don't want him to go through every game like that, I like his "usual" dominant 8 inning 1 run 10 strikeout performances, but it's this kind of game where he struggles and then overcomes that makes me love him.

San Francisco

I left my heart in San Francisco

I forgot to mention that after Tati did the Brian Wilson post-save thing, I gave her the Brian Wilson bobblehead and she immediately started making him and Zito smooch loudly, muahahahaha.

While looking for Giants articles, I came across this one that's not so much about baseball, but a big gushy love letter to San Francisco. It made me a little weepy with love. :)

I think it's the description of how you have all these different things coexisting here that gets to me.

This just all sounds so awkward and uncomfortable. :( For me, that is.

Oh wow, it gets even more horrifying:

On what he told the Giants: "The first time I was up, I wished Posey luck and he wished me luck. Then I looked out at Lincecum and touched the bill of my cap, and he touched his in response. I had as special a relationship with Timmy as I have had with any pitcher. Maybe because he was so young when I began catching him and I became a mentor to him. We have texted since I was traded but I had not seen him or talked to him in person until the game yesterday. I had heard he had said really nice things about me to the press."

On what he told Lincecum: "When he came up to bat for the first time, I stood and told him, 'I want you to know that hits or no hits, win or lose, you're my boy.' (Lincecum said:) 'Hey, Be-Mo, I love you.' "
So to summarize, they looked at each other and touched themselves, and Bengie had a "special relationship" with Timmy because he was "so young" and then he called him his boy and Timmy said that he loved him. I think I watched an episode of SVU like this once.

Also, apparently Josh Hamilton smelled pot in the outfield, LOL.
"I could smell weed in the outfield," Hamilton said. "It was crazy. I was looking at the cops a couple of times during the game."

It was the second straight day Hamilton ran into weed smokers.

"My wife and I were walking down the street [Tuesday] and there was a guy smoking a joint with a cop 50 yards away," he said.
I don't remember ever smelling pot at a Giants game, but it is the World Series; it's a special occasion! Also, that's kind of more a Berkeley cop thing to do, I think. One of my friends was smoking pot in Berkeley and a cop asked him to go over the hill to a road that was less busy. :P
