Giants Are Done; Life Can Go On

No Gravatar

As the avid sports fan, I’m in a quandry at this time of the year.  Yes, I’m a Bay Area sports fan: 49ers, Raiders, Giants, A’s, Warriors  (it is possible to like both sides of the Bay).  This time of the year, I would never have to worry about the Giants going too deep – well, until last year, that is.  Normally, they’re done by what – say, August?  I can then get on with my life – worrying about the high season at the Chateau, harvest and holiday preparations.  Last year was tough; the Giants went all the way to the World Series, so I had to balance my time between them and the Chateau.  Sadly, this year the Giants are already out of the running.  It’s funny how our expectations of them are so great now that they’ve won; their failure to get in to the post-season is a horrible let down (when in the past 40 years, having a +500 season was an achievement).   Even at the point where there were 14 games left and they were like 8 games out, people were still optimistic that the Giants could pull it off.  Come on!  Let’s be realistic.  Now it’s time for me to move on.

Anyways, I can rant all day about sports…but, I now get my life back early and can concentrate on the harvest and activities around the Chateau now.

That is, until the new Fall season of shows started back!  Damn that tv addiction….
