    All I can say is wow ... did anyone give the Giants a chance?

    Good for them ... nice to see the underdog win when your dog is home for the fight.

    also, how do you get 'underdog'?

    giants were 94-68 this year, tigers were 88-74 (same record as the st louis cards)

    cards and tigers were the two worst w/l teams in the playoffs

    Because I saw lots of these before the series:

    ESPN people 22/27 picked Tigers and @ 70% of an ESPN poll picked Tigers.

    they bought into detroit's sweep over the yanks

    but when's the last time an AL team even won the ws? 2009 yanks?

    the smart money knew sf had the edge

    the long lay off after sweeping the stinkies killed the tigers just like it killed the rockies in 07.
