My screen name is the truncated name of an outdoor public swimming pool in Vancouver. Seriously, don't ask. My real name is Jeremy.

Have loved the Giants through thick and thin since the mid-1990s.

The Buck Doesn't Stop Here (sadly)

Joe Buck signs contract extension with Fox, will continue to call ruin regular and postseason baseball games until at least 2014.

MLB Gameday on the new Apple iPad. Holy. Freaking. Crap. This will be THE new must-have for all McCoven in 2010. Hanging out in your mom's basement has never been so cutting edge!

OT: Donations for Haiti Earthquake Victims

[Making this a FanPost just to give it exposure higher on up on the home page...] I wish I could focus on Giants baseball today, but I can't. I made a donation to this wonderful organization today,...

OT: Open 2010 World Cup Drawday Thread

(Posting this about 19 hours early...) Greetings, McCoven futbol fans, and those of you looking for a work distraction between the end of the Tiger Woods Affair and the start of the Winter...

A Trippy Little Film

Great little animated short recounting Dock Ellis' no-hitter-on-acid. Not Giants related, but very entertaining.

Poll: Which of the Yankees' free agents....

...will Brian Sabean try to sign this off-season? Will he sign Jose Molina, re-sign Bengie, and give us 162 games of Molina catchers behind the plate? (Buster Posey could always play at third, or...

5th Annual GRANT APPRECIATION DAY

This would have been funnier a year or two ago, but I still lol'd.

McCovey Night: The Visual Evidence

OT: Top 10 (favorite) albums of the decade

Since it's the All-Star Break, with four straight days of no Giants games, it's time for the off-topic equivalent of rosterbation. Namely, what do you think are the 10 (or 5, or 3) best albums of...

Romo to be activated Friday?

Welcome news, but who goes? I'd love to see Aurilia retire but I'm guessing Frandsen's going back to Fresno. Or would there be some other move?

The Giants in Seattle (with pics)

This is a bit late in being posted, but given how many Giants fans were in Seattle over the weekend for the interleague series (it must have been at least a few thousand), I was somewhat surprised...

World Series Games to Start Ealier

No pun intended, but it's about freaking time.

I must admit, I LOL'd when I first saw it.

Interesting ESPN profile of Kim Ng, the Dodgers assistant GM (and hopefully the future GM of the Giants).

The bizarre 2009 schedule

(This might not be fanpost worthy but I couldn't quite shoehorn it into a fanshot.) Has anyone taken a close look at the 2009 schedule for the Giants? I hadn't done so until last night, while...

OT: The Goal of the Year?

I thought PacBell Boozer and some of the other footie fans would get a kick out of this (no pun intended). Pretty great goal by Grafite in last weekend's Wolfsburg-Bayern Munich match.

RIP Voice of "San Francisco Giants Baseball"

31

Sad news: Brian James has died of a heart attack. He's the guy whose voice we've heard the last few years, doing a brief pre-recorded intro about the Giants' opponent, right before Jon or Flem or Kuip comes on the air. Also the guy who did voiceovers for all the KNBR shows.

I feel badly for anyone who's gotten swindled, but seriously...the dude only has $13? Maybe he can borrow some scrilla from Vijay Singh. Oh, wait....

OT: In Praise of Greg Maddux

Wasn't on the site much yesterday (jury duty, natch), but I guess in the rush of the Winter Meetings, the retirement of Greg Maddux got overlooked. Probably didn't help his cause with the McCoven...

Dynamic Pricing of Giants Games

Interesting concept. Hmm, I wonder which sections they're referring to when they talk about "a few tough-to-sell upper-deck outfield sections"...

Obama invited to throw first pitch at White Sox Opening Day

It would be really great if he suddenly chose that moment to throw a 100-mph fastball at AJ Pierzynski's noggin. Can Giants fans dream? Yes, we can.

Why the Dodgers Should Not Be Allowed on TV

12

Oh. My. God. Possibly the worst moment in the history of broadcast TV. It's like the worst acid trip you've ever had. If the Dodgers are allowed to win another World Series, then the terrorists have won.

Kim Ng for Mariners GM?

Great for her if she gets an interview, greater still if she gets the job, although I'd prefer she be one of the candidates to replace Sabean.
