I never thought we'd be here, on the precipice of watching the San Francisco Giants win their first World Series ever. But having blown past the Phillies with a couple of decent starters, just enough offense to win, and hot biorhythms from players like Cody Ross, it does indeed appear that the Giants are a team of destiny, and the 2010 World Championship will be theirs.
Man, that would be a disappointment for us Dodger fans.
And so, we Sons are going to pull out the last arrow in our quiver. We will sacrifice a Son in order to have the Rangers win the World Series.
You read that right. At the last SoSG staff meeting, we all drew straws, and one of us drew the short straw, and therefore agreed to be served up to the baseball gods in order to keep the Giants from winning. If the baseball gods will take our sacrifice as a worthy gesture, then we are happy to submit. The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the one Son. (Plus, with the spiraling costs of health care benefits, our CFO thinks it's a fiscally prudent idea.)
It's going to be painful, of course. No one likes to lose a brother. But we're desperate. And I mean, Donner Party desperate (though we're not going to eat him, just sacrifice him).
Stay tuned for more info tomorrow morning.
