  • what do you call the players?

    the murph man, longtime giants equipment manager mike murphy, calls matt cain "candy cain."
    so, me and my "big man cain" are out. cause whatever the murphman says, goes.

    how do you fellow giants fans refer to the giants players?

    some of mine:
    alou is moises, always
    benitez is benny
    bonds, bb
    durham, ray-ray
    feliz, petey
    lowry, smooth
    niekro, kid
    schmidt, schmiddy
    vizcaino, vinny
    vizquel is either omar, or just "o"
    winn, dwight
    worrell, timmy

      Last name, or first name if it's a famous first name.

        What about Sparky, Butch or Rex? No offense, WCOB, but you make 'em all sound like your puppies. In fact, I've had a few dogs with some of those names.

            the Stick!

            ah candlestick park in the evening. what was that award they would hand out to the fans around the 7th inning, 'the croix de stick' or some such name?
            that is paying your dues indeed. bring a blanket and jacket and some gloves.

                Man, i still recall going to a FOURTH OF JULY game that was going to have a celebration afterwards. Around the 7th inning it was damn damn cold. Again, this was the 4th of July!
                But an awesome fireworks display.

                  "the coldest winter i ever spent was a summer in san francisco."

                  whether or not mark twain actually stated that, it is true for much of the three months.
                  we locals simply layer.

                    Like I said, no offense intended - just a friendly dig. Sorry you took it the wrong way. I won't post in your forum anymore. :atthepc

                      dude, you can post here. anyone can.

                      but when it's popping off or even close to it, i take exception, here in the giants forum.
                      one of the reasons for team fora is that fans of a team can share without the popping off stuff.
