Day 285 - Lisa

So now we know the Giants will be play St Louis for the National League pennant.  For any old-time Giants (pre-Bonds or World Series team) this brings back bitter, anxiety filled memories of 1987.  When we lost the pennant to the Cardinals in a bitter fight.  There's the Atlee Hammaker curse, the Ozzie Smith loathing, the ghost of Terry Pendleton, the Roger Craig/Whitey Herzog fights. (lol)  It goes on an on.  Something tells me this is our year to put it all to rest.  Man, I hope so.  I loathe St. Louis!  We need a lot of Hunter Pence inspirational speeches to get through this one!
