Like a bunch of other people in the greater Bay area, I have not been a faithful Giant baseball fan for years and years and years. But because I am married to a guy who pays attention to the Giants, I have been made aware of their accomplishments (or lack of same) for years. Again, like so many others, I started paying serious attention in August when things started looking up for the Giants. As the season began closing down, I became more familiar with individual players and their stories. And then I got hooked.
I got hooked on their stories. I got hooked on their humility. I felt their determination. I got hooked on their teamwork. NO one is the star. Everyone is the team. There is something wonderfully delicious about being a part of something much bigger than you are. Those players might inspire the rest of us. Embrace something bigger than you are. Become part of a team that won't stop believing. Be a misfit. Be a winner.
