niners win

it wasn't a pretty first quarter, but we rallied in the end. we have a mini lead over the seahawks after they fell against the cowboys.  i think that's the first time i've ever rooted for the cowboys. seattle defense wasn't looking so hot. up next for the niners is a doozy - denver.

fltgc: west 24th edition

i haven't been able to keep up with my friday lunch time gallery crawls due to work and spending most lunches at my desk. that's sad. so this trip back to art crawling during lunch was most satisfying. it's great to get out of the office and just be transported into another space of creativity. it was especially true for jacob hashimoto's skyfarm fortress. i had just missed his gas giant at moca in june, so happy to have been able to catch the site specific piece. while on west 24th, i popped into metro pictures and mike weiss gallery. the latter was another make-up viewing as i missed tom fruin's kolonihavehus at the dumbo arts festival and the original watertower in dumbo. a treat to see the dutch masters version.

here we go again

Ezra Shaw/Getty ImagesEven with the Giants' backs against a literal wall,
players such as Hunter Pence came through.
late into early this morning, i sat with fists clenched watching the giants get the last out in the ninth inning to propel them into another nlcs. i was like my fellow giants pals and new pals at a local watering hole in bed sty. a round of shots were had in celebration. what is it about even years and the giants? it's truly tortuous to watch these series but somehow you can't not watch. in 2010, i was up at the dead of night watching in london. 2012 it was brooklyn but pre-sandy. coincidentally, i've also traveled respectively to dc and pittsburgh to see the g-men lose to the two teams they've beaten this fall to get them to the nlcs. lessssss gooooo giants!

road to torture

so that was fun last night. mad bum (top) shutdown the pirates and the brandons (crawford and belt) took care of putting up runs. so we go in with the lowest odds of winning it all. for some reason i like where we are. i like being the underdog and folks aren't completely counting us out. we are a battered bunch but we have heart. with bated breath i'l looking forward to the torture to continue as we go up against the heavily favored nationals. orange october continues.

niners win (finally)

so that was nerve wracking, but we got a win behind some decent defense and frank gore shown in yesterday's game.

after the first half, i had drafted the following. i didn't post it because the faithful in me still held out hope that the niners could finally score in the second half. thankfully they did, but i still think everything i wrote in the first half still rings true, so here it is:

maybe shar's a greedy gal, but my faith has waivered with my niners. i have to remember all the rough years with jeff gracia and alex smith. when notions of playoffs and super bowls were far fetched. shar has been spoiled the past few years with playoff births and a trip to the super bowl (albeit our first loss there.) we have an athletic, "superstar" quarterback in kaep but has he been overhyped? it's looking like it but i'm hoping he proves me wrong. what has always been the heart of the team has been the defense but in these first four games they have looked lackluster with key players hurt or suspended. and coach harbaugh, who i've compared to coach taylor of fnl, has let his emotions overshadow clear discipline. he lost me a bit after he built up alex smith's confidence only to replace him with kaep. i guess that happened to matt saracen on fnl too. clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose... niners need to work on the first two because whose got it better than us? it's looking like somebody and not nobody
