fall classic rewind

well, congrats to the no-cals.  good pitching beats good hitting and all of that.  since the giants had last won the world series (1954), the dodgers had won all 7 of their titles (1955, 1959, 1963, 1965, 1981, 1988).  however, the giants have been to the series 3 times since the last time the dodgers were there.  another item of interest, the giants had lost three straight world series appearances since 1954 (1962, 1989, 2002) before winning this year.  the dodgers had suffered a similar streak, losing in the world series in 1974
and 1978
that last one was particularly painful as the dodgers won the first two games and then lost 4 straight.  i was hoping for a similar scenario this year after the giants won the first two games.  no such luck, though.

wait 'til next year!
