Giants

NY Times: “It was their first championship in 56 years, and their first as a San Francisco team. And team they were — not a consortium of superstars, but a smooth blend of rising stars and nonstars, of rejects and never-beens, modestly compensated by Yankees and Red Sox standards, but hard-working and well-anchored by a staff of awesome starting pitchers, all in their 20s.”

The Giants are proof you don’t need the NY Yankees roster of super stars to win a World Series. A bunch of work-a-day guys. I love that, and wish we had more of that in today’s professional sports.
