The first game of the World Series between the San Francisco Giants and the Texas Rangers was a high scoring affair, one of the most exciting games I've seen all year. The Giants prevailed 11 - 7, but the Rangers showed themselves to be a tough team even in defeat. This won't be a cake walk for either team. Still, I am gratified that my team, the Giants, won the first game.
The Giants' "bull pen," their reserve of pitchers, wear beards, or at least, most of them do. Hence the Giants' slogan, "Fear the Beard," with many fans wearing fake beards in the stands. See video for more details.
