Reason #3: The Other Stuff
There are lots of reasons to watch your favorite team even if they’re having a tough year. As Giants fans, we’re lucky that we have even more reasons than other fanbases to tune in even if it’s a rout.
I know that not every Giants fan loves Kruk and Kuip as announcers, but I think that they are the best in the business. And you know what, they were the best in the business even before Vin Scully retired.
I’m not just saying that just because he was the Dodgers’ announcer for a century or whatever, I really never enjoyed the way he called games. Too many stories and miscellaneous anecdotes for my taste. Plus his voice was too annoying for me.
The only good thing he ever did, in my biased opinion, was call Dwight Clark’s ‘The Catch’. But anyways, Kruk and Kuip are amazing in my opinion. They make an otherwise boring game fun and entertaining.
Not to mention, Oracle Park is objectively one of the most picturesque stadiums in sport, and even watching it on TV is a treat. And beyond all that there’s still just the joy of sitting down and watching a ballgame.
Whether you’re by yourself or with some friends and family, baseball still brings us together and ultimately gives us something to do. It may not be the most exciting game to everyone, but if you love it then you can’t stand life without it.
Plus, being a fairweather fan is the worst. The fake Giants fans from the championship years have been burned off so only the truly allegiant are left and they’re some of the best fans in baseball.
So before you decide to swear off the Giants this year, keep some of the reasons I laid out in mind and keep on rootin’ for the home team.
