San Francisco Giants team at the White House today

Today, our beloved San Francisco Giants baseball team was honored at the White House by President Obama, for their 2014 World Series win.

Video of the event below…

For more, there is a fun article and photos (also funny) at McCovey Chronicles

It is amazing that the SF Giants now have three World Series titles, all won in the last 5 years!

Bay Area sports fans are in lucky, as today is also the first day of the 2015 National Basketball Association (NBA) Finals championship games, with the Oakland-based Golden Gate Warriors against LeBron James’ Cleveland Cavaliers. So…Go Giants….and Go Warriors!

  1. I’m embarrassed to say that I haven’t followed the Giants at all… No sports-watching in my life ever since I parted ways with my sports-watching ex! But I used to be a big Niners fan, specially during the Joe Montana/Dwight Clark era.

    • My attention to sports also started with the Joe Montana days too, Jane.

      I pretty much had to pay attention then, as that was what everyone talked about on Mondays at work… It took me many years to understand football, and then I became a big fan of the 49ers. Baseball took longer, but since they made it to the World Series over the last few years, it is easy to keep track of the team.

      My daughter and I used to watch the Sacramento Kings (my daughter played in a basketball league when she was a teen)…and just this year, Jeff and I started to become interested in the Golden State Warriors. They are a fun team, and the playoffs against LeBron James and the Cavs has been exciting. Two more games and they could be the NBA champs — first time in 40 years (not that the Bay Area needs anymore sports excitement…but it is very cool).

        • I’m sure you know, but just in case (and to record it on my blog, haha 🙂 ) the Warriors are the 2015 NBA Champs! Hurray! It was a fantastic series, and great times for Bay Area sports fans…though it will be interesting to see how the 49ers will do this year. OK, that’s enough sports for you, probably for the whole year…

          • The Warriors…that’s basketball, right?

            haha! Couldn’t resist. However, I’m still not so good…my friends are big Giants fans and I asked them if they are doing well in the play offs.

Now that you are here, I would love to know what you think...comments are always appreciated.
