Win and we're in!
Well, well, well. What do we have here? I'll tell you what.
Our beloved San Francisco Giants are on the verge of the playoffs! It's been waaaay too long since we've been relevant in October, and I think I can speak for everyone reading this when I say: I AM FIRED UP.
As I write this, the "Magic Number" is at one. That's it. Win and we're in. Go big or go home. Do or die, win-- or cry.
Although we are technically not in until we win that last game against the pathetic Madres, I can't even fathom a situation where we're not in the playoffs.
Cue the Gavin Newsom soundbyte. It's gonna happen!

Hilarious. I never thought I'd ever find a use for one of my sworn enemy's videos, haha.
Anyway, this team is special, and I've said it from the get go this season. Despite the fact that this team, as the incorrigible Mat Latos pointed out, has gone through significant changes this season, they've been the "comeback kids" the whole time.
For all those stretches where we couldn't score runs, there were always comebacks and walkoffs mixed in.
There have been a lot of special moments this year, and a lot of special players have really come into their own or rekindled what they once had.
Anyway, once this whole thing becomes official, we can hash out details like playoff rosters, 3 man rotations, and who's ass we're going to kick to get to the NLCS. Until then, enjoy clinch day, watch my 2010 highlight video, and enjoy the last 4 homers hit by our boys in orange and black. Burrell through Posey.
