We Care a Lot

Today is the San Francisco Giants' last game of the year in whatever they're calling their ballpark these days and therefore the last time that Barry Bonds will wear their home uniform. There are many people who will tell you that the team and its fans have moved on. But they speak from a place of ignorance. It means a great deal to those who have followed the Giants for the past decade and a half, so much so that the prospect of him sitting the contest out with the injury that has kept him out of the lineup the past two weeks was unbearable. He started the game, though. I wish I could be there to join in the goodbye cheers.
