What was a girl to do Become a Braves fan Astros Marlins Not bloody likely.I survived. Only because I came home for the summer, during the peak of it all.Now, I find myself in the same pickle. I'm torn between the city I need to be in, and the city I need to leave. I didn't ever think the hardest thing to leave would be my boys My park My fries Especially after this season.Sure, we missed the playoffs.
But for the majority of the 2009 regular season, the Giants embodied the tale of "The Little Engine That Could". Sure, they frustrated me beyond belief, but no one ever thought they'd get as far as they did.I can't recall a season that has been more fun to watch. I thank the baseball gods that the it ended on a high note. And what made it the most fun Bleacher Report, of course. The nurturing community of my peers and fellow sports fans.So here I am, packing up my belongings. Picking and choosing which would go would be far too painful. And my roommate is a Red Sox fan, go figure.So, fellow Giants fans, I must say farewell. I can't ever forsake the men in black, nor would I ever want to. I'll do my best to spread our fan base.Here's what I ask of you: help me soak it all up Come next season, I know I'll be homesick for it all Link me to all your articles.
