Sports craze in San Francisco

Postby Prasadachitta » Sun Oct 24, 2010 6:19 am

I dont follow sports so its rather startling when people spontaneously go crazy all over the neighborhood. People are honking, shouting, blowing horns, and generally acting a bit silly. I was walking home and people kept shouting at me while offering me a high five. At first I resisted but then I just started slapping hands.

:woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo: Well why not?

When I hear the word "sports" I involuntarily zone out and don't hear what's being said for a few seconds.

Thanks Bhante. :smile: Well - that IS worth going crazy over, sort of like when Australia wins an international cricket test (which we haven't done for a while). :jumping:

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

It was an exciting series. The San Francisco Giants beat a stronger Philadelphia team in six games, the last win coming in Philadelphia. The score was tied, 2-2, until late in the game (8th inning) when Juan Uribe hit an opposite-field home-run into the right field stands. Philadelphia threatened in the last inning, but the Giants held on.

Now the Giants must face the Texas Rangers in what Americans like to call the "World Series." LOL

Go, Giants, Go. :woohoo:

The SF Sangha ("Giants") wins Game 1!!! :clap:

The lowly Giants pushed the previously untouchable Cliff Lee, well, off the cliff before the 5th inning (or so I hear).

I only got to see the a bit of the game after Uribe broke the game open with that three-run blast.

I am 10,000 kilometers away, but the excitement is palpable.

C'mon, Gabe! You have got to be excited now! We need updates. Details, man, details!

Apparently winning the world series means that people in the winning city get to block intersections shoot illegal fireworks and throw bottles all over the place.
:woohoo: :guns: :shock:
