Most Recent Site Update: Saturday,
December 18, 2010... seriously!
The 2010 San Francisco
Giants are the
World Champions of
All Time, Space, and Dimension
Alert! Alert! Alert!
- I do not plan to add any more material to EEEEEE! Nor am I looking
to update the notes below. My Giants
blog still exists, but I’m now doing all my writing on
a more general website and companion blog, Ruin
Your Eyes. I hope you’ll visit.
Most Recent Stuff, Sadly
There’s an end-of-season postmortem for 2008 plus some other relatively
recent stuff. I hope to update the blog more avidly in the coming months.
But then, I always hope that. I hope lots of things.
The only baseball team of which to be a fan is the San Francisco
Giants. Thatís a given. But the cost of being forever correct, as Giants fans
inherently are, is to suffer. A lot. And loudly. And, apparently, without end.
No major league baseball team has gone without winning a World Championship
in its current city longer than the San Francisco Giants. Even Cubs fans, whose
team last won it all in 1908, have to count at least one among them, somewhere,
who remembers their team doing the Big Dance on the Mound. But San Francisco
Giants fans? No. Evidently itís against the law or something. Or so
I thought until November 1, 2010.
To find out a bit more of what weíre about, please read EEEEEE!
-- An Introduction.”
I usually announce updates on the Giants
Usenet newsgroup. If you’re a first-time visitor, or even if not,
please drop a note on the blog
to let me know what you think.
Important notes (well, important to me,
anyway, at least when I wrote them; at the moment I’m not bothering to
go through them or add better notes):
- Guess what? Instead of doing season notes, Iíve followed the suggestion
of a brave few who figure I ought to turn this site into some kind of blog.
So Iíve done that: From now on the “fresh” stuff will be at EEEEEEgp.blogspot.com,
which you know if you read the stuff above. I don’t figure to add much
to this site, which really has become an archive of the material I (and others)
wrote between 1996 and 2005. The last major thing I added here was The
2005 Postmortem! You might find it fun because of the Sports Illustrated
Baseball game angle.
- I still get e-mails from readers—believe it or not, new readers
sometimes—which have the effect of making me feel a little guilty for
having let EEEEEE! lie fallow for so long. I hope to rectify that fairly
soon, but then I always say that. But at least I should do a new logo or something.
Meanwhile, the navigation bar to the left will bring you to tons of stuff,
mostly written between 1996 and 2001, Iím sorry to say.
- The XBL,
tragically, seems to have died on the vine, or at least gotten ill and grumpy.
That doesnít mean itís done for yet, though. On the other hand, it also doesnít
mean thereís anything new there. I look at it wistfully every so often, so
hey, you can too. The XBL was my spoofy response to the XFL, which has now
become so lost in the mists of time that nobody remembers it.
Well, Iím trying to add this Google-based search engine to the site, but it sure doesnít seem to come up with much.
