Fans in Boston are the worst and don't hesitate to even attack the Lakers' bus after beating the Lakers.

I was going to say the same thing. Let's have the "World Series USA" and then the "World Series Open," but first we're going to need standardized rules and playing fields. Baseball in the USA is very different from Japan.

Also, I was in Boston when the Pat won the Super Bowl for the first time. On the T, right after the game finished. It was noisy, sure, but there was no hint of violence or scariness, and I was still able to sleep in the hotel that night..

If this is Boston being quiet I sure as hell don't want to them to get loud.

There was some unfavorable activity last night too. Without knowing the facts, Im inclined to blame those Anarchists who seem to show up everywhere just to cause trouble!!

Congrats to the Giants and my favorite city, San Francisco. I moved to SF in 1999 from NYC (Yankees are my favorite team), and the Giants instantly became my favorite National League team. I still remember watching the last game at Candlestick on TV, and then watching them fly homeplate to Pac Bell Park which obviously wasn't finished yet. I thought that was so cool. Then I remember my first time in Pac Bell, I was blown away by how beautiful the stadium is, without a doubt, the nicest stadium in the league, due to the looks, and the location.

I started getting into the history of the Giants, and started to fall in love with the team. I remember finding the announcing team boring at first, and then started to really like the tandem. I remember being really heartbroken in 2002, losing the World Series in 7 games to the Angels, the prior year, my Yankees lost in 7 games. These last two years have made up for those heartbreaks.

Congrats again SF Giants, The BEST TEAM IN BASEBALL !!

Hmmmmm. Well the team does love him and shows support. Its the fans that don't like him. He did help us get us to where we are. At one point, he was unstoppable.

Not many humans can sit on the bench and get paid $136 Million ya know.
