Best game I've ever been to, too
No pressure, Tim. Just do what any 26-year-old making his first playoff appearance in front of 43,000 screaming fans would do: strike out 14 fucking batters and pitch a complete game shutout and take the entire City and County of San Francisco onto your wiry, bong-wielding shoulders and basically give the most dominant pitching performance since.....uh, well, I guess since Roy Halladay's no-hitter yesterday. Damn you, Roy Halladay!
Oh, wait, this just in: Lincecum's win last night actually WAS better than Halladay's no-hitter. SUCK ON THAT, ROY HALLADAY!
I think Miss Kate sums it all up:
Holy shit. Best game I’ve ever been to.
Someday the gravity of what I just witnessed Tim Lincecum do will hit me (FOURTEEN STRIKEOUTS!), but until then, I’m just gonna revel in the amount of fun I just had and how proud I am of the San Francisco Giants and us fans.
Torture makes a loud crowd. I have never felt so close to 40,000 people. Pretty sure I high fived about 20,000 of ‘em.
Hey San Francisco: YOU ARE A BASEBALL TOWN. Don’t let anyone tell you different ever again.
Top five best nights of my life. GO GIANTS!!!
