My Giants
You beauties
Behold your black and orange splendor
You are a great love
Memories stretching back to childhood
Mays, McCovey, Marichal and my first favorite
Cap Peterson
Cap Peterson?
Windy, cold Candlestick Park a hellish landscape for baseball
But my heroes played there
I braved it all to root them on
A child, a teen, a young man
Middle aged, married
With children
On to a new ballpark
A baseball palace
Still more frustration but no loss of love for this team
Finally a special group
Pitching so bewitching
Hitting most timely
A crafty manager making all the right moves
No bluster
Just Buster
No pain
Matt Cain
And the boss
Cody Ross
Someone tough
Aubrey Huff
No cryin’
Thanks to Brian
And him, oh him
Mighty Tim
Champs at last
What a blast
Glory glory 
A great great story
