The Giants Did It! And We Have New Pets.





Kayla has the day off from school today.

Dave just took her to the pet store to buy a pair of goldfish.

K: (bats eyelashes) "Daddy! I know. Let's get one orange and one black and name them Panda and Posey."

Girl knows how to work a joyous situation.

I mean.

How do you say no to that?

We were up past bedtimes last night driving around the city.

Rally rags and signs out the car windows.

Mini-fireworks displays around the neighborhood.

Cheering with new friends as they poured out of the bars and restaurants downtown.

Ashlyn shouted, "The Giants did it!"

We're picking her up from school today and driving up to the city as a family to welcome our team home.

Hopefully our new fish friends will still be alive when we come back.

I'm predicting Panda might eat Posey.

But we'll see.

All I know is that it's a fun time to be a Giants fan.

And I have 3.8 pounds to lose from dip intake.

Well done, boys.

You did it.


  1. worth the 3.8lbs of stress eating.

  2. i'm pretty sure the highlight of the win was when ashlyn finally, FINALLY, stopped antagonizing me with tigers, and was cheering out the window for the giants.
    i'm so glad she hopped on that bandwagon.
    welcome to it, girlfriend.
    tigers, out.

  3. you realize i don 't care about such things... but your enthusiasm is so contagious that now i do. AND nate thanks you. ;) we love you guys sooo therefore, consequently... we love that the giants won. :)

  4. I love the idea of the goldfish! How cute! I'm happy for you all too. Eric was bummed about the Tigers losing. I'm so glad we can focus on football now. Go Niners! :)

  5. SO FUN!!! SO AWESOME! I love that your goldfish are named Panda and Posey! Adorable! :)

  6. Fell asleep before the last out but I slept in peace. They were the team of destiny from Cinncinnate to Detroit.
    Bothcy showed that a real team is not made of money but of club house team work.
    They may do it next year, but I get ahead of myself.

  7. I thought of you when I heard the results on the radio this morning:) We're hunkering down and prepping for Hurricane Sandy here on the East Coast. Enjoy your sunshine out there! :)

  8. Hi friend! I love your blog, and when someone nominated me for a liebster award, I couldn't help but jump on the love train and nominate you as well. Details on my blog if you want to participate. :)
