Scuba Diver Gets in on Giants Pride

By now you've probably seen a splattering of World Series victory lap photos. Here's an unusual one to add to the mix: A decked-out diver in the tank at The Cal Academy of Sciences.

World Series: An Epic Battle of Good vs. Evil

We here in San Francisco all love our Giants, but I think I can speak for the entire city when I say that even we are surprised by how ruthlessly we've been creaming the Texas Rangers in the World Series. The Rangers, who beat the Yankees to take the American League pennant, are the odds-on favorite in Vegas, and no one honestly expected our little misfit band of Giants—half of them picked up mid-season in random trades—to take the Series in four games, but it's looking like that's exactly what might happen.

Dallas Reporter Newy Scruggs Thinks We're All Potheads

Gawker has a hilarious post this morning of a broadcast from before last night's game by Dallas NBC sports reporter Newy Scruggs. Basically, he thinks we're all potheads. "People are nice here...they want to see their team win, but they're all half buzzed out." Watch the clip.

Required Pre-Game Watching: Brian Wilson's Jim Rome Interview

For those who haven't already seen this classic, it's required watching before Game One. Commenter natedgg99 hits the nail on the head: Brian Wilson's a real-life Kenny Powers from East Bound & Down. Watch and soak up some quotes for the ages. Go Giants!

World Series By the Numbers @ Public House & Mijita

Okay, so you've been scrambling to plan your own barbecue celebrating the Giants smoking the Texas Rangers in their World Series showdown. You need a few cases of beer, a couple of pounds of meat and veggies and other accoutrements, right? Well, that's absolutely nothing compared to the World Series prep Public House and Mijita (ground zero for drunken revelers) are putting on for the first two games.

Here's our "World Series By the Numbers" down at the ballpark, courtesy of John Epperheimer, Director of Operations at both restaurants:

World Series Tickets? Upwards of $500. Kayaking in McCovey Cove? $100.

World Series tickets are going for upwards of $500 for standing room only. Bleachers? $900.

You can get a prime seat in McCovey Cove for less than $100, but it involves kayaking. We're sure it'll be crowded in those waters, but it's certainly an appropriately San Francisco way to take in our first World Series in 8 years.
