Some wag in the comments section of McCovey Chronicles pointed out that 11-01-10 is "54" in binary. Clever chap. The Boys of November straddled the Great Divide between the World of the Living and the World of the Dead by winning back-to-back games in Texas on both Hallowe'en and All Saints Day. The orange & black unis had to help, eh? (Día de los Muertos is on November 2nd--The Day After.) So, how do you feel, my friends? I'm still a bit numb. I've been mainlining Giants since April, and that doesn't count the angst and anticipation of the off- and pre-seasons. Going cold turkey is a real bitch! I'm nowhere near ready to fire up the hot stove--there is too much joy to be had here in Mudville to worry about 2011. I want to wallow in the glory of a World Series championship and bask in the happiness it brings me. I turned 50 last November, and I turn 51 on the 13th. The 2010 Giants gave me a damn fine birthday present, don't you think?
Oh, and the Giants open at 10-1 to repeat.
