I was only a year old when the Giants last won the World Series in 1954, an important win to the biggest Giants fan I knew -- my Dad.
Since then, the Giants have made the Series four times, and they beat the Texas Rangers tonight for their first championship since that win over Cleveland 56 years ago. This was the most unlikely of teams, compared to the stars on the teams in 1962, 1989, and 2002.
Which makes this World Series win tonight the best of all. And what makes baseball the best of all sports.
I can now stop trying to write the perpetual angst poem about the Giants.
