Celebrating 35 (and Multiples of 35)

  It turns out that Brandon Crawford and Mike Krukow have the same birthday, January 21, and that Krukow is exactly 35 years older than Craw.

What Comes Next?

"What Comes Next?" is a song in the musical "Hamilton," and it's sung by King George III, who serves as the show's comic relief. George Washington, Alexander Hamilton, and their compatriots have succeeded in defeating the powerful British and winning the Revolutionary...

Happy TWG Halloween!

Happy TWG Halloween!

Why is there a picture of a very young Madison Bumgarner at the top of this post? Because Halloween is the anniversary of one of the coolest ever San Francisco Giants memories, non-trophy category. On Sunday, October 31, 2010, 21-year-old rookie Madison Bumgarner made...
