for heavens sake, lighten up a little. Evenyone needs some enjoyment and escape in their lives, whether it is watching sports, going to the movies, listening to your favorite CD or going to a concert. All entertainers are over paid, that's no secret, but it is still a wonderful form of entertainment. So, don't enjoy yourself, give your money to your favority university for scholarships!!!

That game was truly amazing! It says a lot about the Giants bullpen when they pull the starting pitcher after just two innings and are able to hold the Phillies to just 2 runs. I was so nervous that last out with Wilson pitching with two men on. That game was typical Giants torture baseball at its finest, but I was loving every minute of it.

Go Giants!!!

Awesome game. Wilson sure silenced all the typically unclassy booing Philly fans. Would have been nice for them to clinch it at home, but a win's a win. This WS should be pretty great.

A Giants fan rooting for Dodgers? Dodgers are our biggest rival! We should never root for them.

There is no money wasted. Its a big sports business. It creates jobs along with excitement.

Losing homes has nothing to do with this. Maybe they should have taught twice before buying a home they could not afford to begin with.
