During a brief summer between childhood and puberty, many many years ago, I thought to myself, "Someday I will have sex and the San Francisco Giants will win the World Series."
Many summers and falls have gone by and many baseball teams have gone to win the championship, but until last Monday the Giants had not won since 1952. I had heartbreaks in 1971, 1987, 1989, and worst in 2002 when we were 5 outs away and lost it all over the next two games.
When I was small I lived in Cuba and Cubans back then, before Castro, loved the New York Yankees. You can see many references to it in Hemingway's Old Man and the Sea where the fisherman thinks much about Joe DiMaggio.
It is easy to be a Yankee fan.
Go Giants, a team with great pitching and no super star profesionals who made it a real team effort.
