      There are a few other "Rivalry" threads here that this has spawned. Ever read those also?

      • Angels vs Dodgers

        The angels vs dodgers rivalry is pretty bitter. If you go to a game at dodger stadium dodger fans will get on you and harrass you if you are rooting for the angels
        Phillies Vs D-Backs

        Mason (5-3) Vs Nippert (0-0)

                I've probably glanced at a couple. What's your point?

                    Why would Giambi have a curtain call for a walk?

                      The guy takes a curtain call for pretty much everything else he does why would a walk be any different?

                      I was being sarcastic.

                            Since you've been vocal in your opposition to this thread, I was just mentioning that there are others, such as the Dodgers/Giants thread, which are influenced by this, the "grand daddy" of our rivalry threads.

                            That's why I think that this thread is great. People can relax, let their hair down, talk about other teams and make silly comments.

                            Not everyone enjoys this, but for the regulars, it's very much a fun thing. Everyone's different.

                            • Dodger/ Giant thread is the KING of the Current Event threads..........

                              • I'm amazed at how relatively LITTLE I've seen on this thread about the Giants-Dodgers rivalry. It's eons old, and it's intense. When Terry Forster served up the 3-run HR to 39-year-old Joe Morgan on the last day of the 1982 season, and the Giants hung on to beat the Dodgers 5-3 (with Minton nearly blowing the save), the fans at Candlestick reacted like they'd just won the World Series--even though it was the BRAVES who went to the playoffs as a result of Morgan's HR.

                                I will never forget that image. All those disconsolate Dodgers walking off the field, and the Giants' sound system, turned up to what surely must have been full volume, blaring Tony Bennett's immortal "I Left My Heart In San Francisco," while the tens of thousands of mainly drunk fans went berserk.

                                I would not have liked being one of the media people assigned to go into the Dodgers' locker room that day. Nor when Bobby Thomson's 3-run HR won the 3rd and deciding playoff game between them for the 1951 NL pennant. Nor when a 4-run rally in the top of the 9th did the exact same thing in the playoff in 1962. We may not be good at winning World Series (as in, 1 since 1933), but we're great at eliminating the Dodgers. (Oh, yeah, and rookie Dave Kingman's 2-run HR to take the division title from the Dodgers on the final day of the 1971 season.)

                                Giants fans remember these events like normal people remember their children's births. So yeah, Giants-Dodgers is a huge rivalry. Get the film clips of Morgan's HR and the fans' reactions to the Dodgers' walking off the field after that game. You'll never forget it.
