NL Series MVP Marco Scutaro
Yes Sports Fans, The San Francisco Giants have WON the National League Pennant by crushing the defending World Series Champion St. Louis Cardinals 9-0 in game 7 of the NLCS. They did it with shutdown pitching, immaculate hitting, amazing defense and a home crowd roar that'll make Tony Tiger's "They'rrre Grrrreat" sound like a purr.
I was at the Oakland Raiders overtime victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars yesterday and it was Extremely Loud. I watched the Giants/Cardinals tonight on television and it sounded louder than yesterday's Oakland coliseum, non-stop for nine innings of championship baseball. That's homefield advantage.
Giants fans should really take the next 48 hours to just sit back and enjoy this momentous sports accomplishment. Though you won't find too much written about it in the national media, or talked about on FOX Sports, you should know that the San Francisco Giants have added their name to the baseball history books by coming from 3-1 down in the NLCS, and 2-0 down in the NLDS. Nothing unusual for these Giants, they've been surprising us all season.

We're Going to The World Series!!!!!!!!!!!
