Fireworks exploding from the neighboring houses!  Cars honking as they speed down the street!  Screams!  Yells!  It is noisy outside!

(Poor li’l Gracie hiding under the dining room table, her tail between her legs!)

Series MVP Renteria ??? YEEES !!!

Lincecum was magnificent!  Hats off as well to Matt Cain (pitched Game 2) and Madison Bumgarner (pitched Game 4)!  All these guys are in their early or mid-20s.  Hope they’ll remain Giants for a long, looong time!

Bittersweet moment:  the last time self will see Brian Wilson cross his arms and point to the sky.

2nd night in a row, self did not cook dinner!  Hubby surviving on beer, chips, and salsa!

Bruce Bochy, you are genius!  Sheer genius!

Bochy for Governor!

(Lincecum in the post-game interview:  Wow, take a look at those arms!  For a skinny guy, that is some major, major musculature!)

Stay tuned.
