Fifty years ago this month, the Giants lost the World Series to the Yankees in seven games. I was hoping against hope that the Giants would face the Yankees in this World Series and give them a drubbing. However, the Yankees were swept by the Tigers, who in turn were swept by the Giants. So with the awesome superiority of the Giants well established beyond all doubt, I am forced to give up my fifty year old dream of revenge against the Yankees.
As for Detroit, I feel for their fans. Giants fans know how it feels to be swept, as the Giants were swept by the Oakland As in 1989. We know how it feels to see your team lose, as the Giants were beaten by the Anaheim Angels in 2002, when a win seemed almost certain going into the last three games. It is heartbreaking, as it is very difficult to get to the Series in the first place. I hope they get another chance at a Series title, and soon. As long as it isn't against the Giants, I will root for them!
