I got an email today from Mrs. Flynn’s daughter. For those who don’t remember, Mrs. Flynn is the original Gamer Babe (the story is on my page: About Toni Cecchetti). If not the original, she’s at least a charter member. Mrs. Flynn is responsible for my love for the GIANTS. When I was a teenager, Mrs. Flynn was a GIANTS fan and she stayed a true GIANTS fan through thick and thin. Back then I liked whichever team fielded the cutest players. Even the–gasp!–Dodgers! Lucky for me, using the cutest guys as my measuring stick, I would still be a GIANTS fan. They are a nice looking bunch of guys, not to mention they are also a nice bunch of guys. It was great to hear from Mrs. Flynn’s daughter, a Gamer Babe herself. She told me that she appreciates my positive posts, because, as she said “I love my Giants and the exciting games they give us. Win or lose they are my team.” Mrs. Flynn’s granddaughters are also Gamer Babes. Colleen, Laura and Eileen often share, comment or like my posts. It is pretty cool to be part of the Flynn Gamer Babe tradition. In keeping with that positive spirit, here’s what I have to say about today’s game:
The GIANTS lost (I just eliminated the negative-Krukow style) Here’s the good news: they didn’t allow the A’s to sweep them. They didn’t even allow the A’s to shut them out. In the bottom of the 8th inning, Ehire Adrianza got a base hit, advanced to 2nd on Hunter’s base hit, and came home on Pablo’s RBI single. That put the GIANTS on the board. The final score was:
GIANTS 1, A’s 6
This one is behind us. We’ve still got tomorrow. Lots of baseball left. Let’s go GIANTS!!!
