This, that and the other thing
So the Giants win their second World Series championship in three years Sunday night in Detroit, and as you'd expect, all the talk Monday morning on the national TV and radio sports shows was about the Giants.
The New York Giants.
Seems the football Giants holding off the Dallas Cowboys is a bigger deal than San Francisco winning another baseball championship.
The San Francisco Giants are getting little credit for sweeping the Tigers in four games. Detroit is being blamed for the loss more than the Giants are being praised for the win.
The Tigers were sluggish after their long break following the American League Championship Series. Their hitters lost their timing. Their pitchers lost their sharpness. The Giants? They were just hot against a cold team nothing more.
Considering the Giants' ticker-tape parade will be held on Halloween, it might be fitting if the players dress up as Rodney Dangerfield.
They get no respect.
Barry Zito finally enters the last season of his seven-year, $126 mil- lion contract with the Giants. After winning 15 games in 2012, he could be even better in 2013. Twenty wins? It's not out of the question. The question is, do the Giants re-sign Zito?
It's taco day in America from 2 to 6 p.m. today thanks to Angel Pagan's stolen base in Game 2. Taco Bell will give away Doritos Locos tacos. It's further proof that béisbol is no longer as American as hot dogs and apple pie.
What to watch
NBA, Celtics at Heat, 5 p.m., TNT: The Heat gets its championship rings before tipping off the 2012-13 season.
If Barry Zito pitches well in 2013, should the Giants re-sign him?
