I went to my first Giants game in 1962 when my dad took me to the 'stick to see the Giants play the St. Louis Cardinals. I thought a lot about my dad last week during the Series -- he would have loved this!
And who says baseball isn't religious? My friend and seminary classmate, Sean McConnell, saw to it that Grace Cathedral in San Francisco was lit up with Giants' orange last week in celebration. He got a theater company with orange lighting gells that could be used on the cathedral's outdoor flood lights.
Congratulations Giants fans everywhere!
