killing me

This story from the SF Chronicle says it all.  Giants: why must you mess with my emotions?  You are like the cute boy who impressed me from the start, captures my heart, then backs away.  I am confused.  I am hurt.  I believed in you.

Yeah, I know that I’m being dramatic.  After all, it’s only the 3rd week of the season.  But, damn!  My love/hate relationship with my Giants is rough, and I’m sensing that this season is going to be particularly rough.

emotional rollercoaster

Here we go again.  I love baseball season, but oh how my heart suffers.  My emotional state day to day seems to correspond directly with how the Giants are performing.  They win: I am happy and the Giants are amazing.  They lose (oh just a Manny Ramirez  2 run home run in the 8th inning so the Dodgers win 2 – 1, DON’T GET ME STARTED): I am disgruntled and the Giants are the stinkiest team ever.

Yep, this is my life between April and as of lately, September, of EVERY year.  The irony is I would LOVE for this torture to extend to October, as that would mean the Giants are in the play-offs.  Sick, huh?  I know.

I got the fever

Wow… A week ago the last thing on my mind was Giants baseball.  Today, it’s all I can think about.  I was feeling pretty lukewarm about this season as it didn’t seem like the Giants had done enough to improve themselves during the off-season.  They did pick up a couple of new players to boost their offense (Aubrey Huff and Mark DeRosa), but no names that made you go “wow! the Giants really want to win this thing”.

However, as they say, chemistry is big factor and the 2010 Giants seem to have that certain “je ne sais quois” as is quite apparent after just 4 games.  4 games that they WON, I should say!!! I don’t think they’ve ever started off 4-0, so this is HUGE.

I must say I am thrilled.  It didn’t take much to get me back into the spirit, that’s for sure!  I truly feel like I’ve caught a fever and baby it’s HOT!
