Tue, 15 Sep 2015 02:21:09 EST Triple Crowned - the giants 3 times world series recently stumbled into this book that is so impressive I just had to share the info. It is a publication by the BayAreaNewsGroup and is very thorough in its coverage of the Giants historic season. As you know, the Giants accomplished the amazing feat of winning the World Series 3 times in the last 5 years – 2010, 2012, and 2014. The book title is: <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> TRIPLE CROWNED <BR> <BR> The San Francisco Giants’ Incredible 2014 Championship Season <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> It is 1...

Feel so much better getting the sugars out of my food choices.:) <BR> Mon, 1 Sep 2014 17:07:16 EST Long Time Giants Fan My early memories of the Giants is going to Candlestick Park with my father and sisters and watching Willie Mays in Center Field. Although I'm not "new" to SparkPeople, this is the first time that I've attempted to actively participate by doing the food and exercise logs. I've recently celebrated my 56th birthday by joining a gym and I've started to go 4x's a week. <BR> I'm still working on my personal page and I hope to have a picture of me in my Giants jersey up soon.

Are you making resolutions? Are you waiting for the 1st to put them in action or have you already started them? Fri, 27 Dec 2013 21:03:45 EST Redesigned Nutrition Page This was posted by Coach Tanya about the changes on the nutrition page that happened today <BR> <BR> This morning we launched a slightly redesigned version of the nutrition tracker. The changes entail: <BR> <BR> 1) An overall visual redesign. We simplified the colors, and a few other things. The goal was to better match the redesigns recently launched on pages like our homepage and Start page. <BR> <BR> 2) As part of the redesign, we moved a few things around the page: <BR> - The biggest i... Fri, 22 Nov 2013 09:30:57 EST Holiday Challenge The holidays are upon us. This time of year can be hard to stay on track when it comes to eating healthy and exercising.

We can start counting the days to when Giants baseball season starts! <BR> <BR> I can't believe that thursday the Giants and As will be playing here in the bay area! <BR> <BR> I have no idea when I'm going to actually be able to get to a game as I'm still recovering from surgery and will be for the next few months, but I can at least be watching games on TV! <BR> <BR> What is everyone looking forward to this season?? Fri, 22 Mar 2013 19:14:05 EST Fun workout songs This is a fun site to download (FOR FREE!) mashups! <BR> So if you're looking for something upbeat and something new to workout with, you may want to give this site a try. What you do is right click the song, then "save target as" and I put mine in my music folder. Then when I open my iTunes, I add the song to my workout playlist I have going on there. You can also just do the normal select click and just listen to the songs on the site. <BR> <BR> <link> </link> ...

But I wanted to hear about everyone else who is participating! :) <BR> <BR> (I will be having foot surgery, both feet one after the other, over the span of this summer into fall....that is, if insurance will get off it's butt and approve it already!) Sat, 14 Apr 2012 14:06:12 EST Funny online Giants stuff Thought I"d start a new where we can post some links to funny Giants stuff we find online...because we all need a smile and giggle sometimes. <BR> <BR> I'm now following this GIants comic called "Grabbing some Pine" and it's updated after every game so far... <BR> Sat, 14 Apr 2012 14:04:00 EST 2012 season Ok, I have been bad team leader and have been off Spark for a while, but I am back! <BR> <BR> Good news: Timmy is signed for two more years! <BR> Bad news: We're still paying for Zito! <BR> <BR> Spring Training is just around the corner, Fan Fest is even closer! <BR> Anyone going to either? Thu, 26 Jan 2012 12:27:42 EST "The Franchise" showtime series So so so....Wednesday is the first night of the series. Now, based on the preview show, I think this may actually be a good series. <BR> Unfortunately I think that the show has reulted in majorly lame fans at the ballgame, you can spot them as they hold signs with tag lines from the Showtime show, such as: "GOT HEEEEEM" <BR> <BR> SO in the spirit of things, I thought I would start a new topic so we can all dish about the show...the good and the bad Tue, 12 Jul 2011 01:09:35 EST 2011 Season Ok, so we're off to a rough start.... <BR> Zito looks like he may perform the same this year...bletcht! and Runzler...I mean...really?!? get rid of him already. <BR> <BR> I am excited about this Mr. Belt character and hopefully we get Wilson and Ross off the DL like NOW! <BR> <BR> I wonder how long it's going to be that Cain maintains no one scoring off him? Tue, 5 Apr 2011 15:15:13 EST Will Clark Happy Birthday Mr. Clark!! <BR> <BR> Being my most favorite Giants player I've enjoyed watching him thru the years, also knowing he'll never make it into the hall of fame but also knowing all of what he did in baseball he did naturally with the talent he was given... the true Natural. <BR> <BR> Can't wait for the season to start... Sun, 13 Mar 2011 14:08:55 EST 2011 Giant Race Hello fellow fans!! <BR> <BR> I was wondering if any of you are planning to/are interested in participating this year's Giant Race? I had such a great time last year, and I'm hoping to make it even more fun this year with some fellow sparkers! <em>220</em> <BR> <BR> The race is August 27th this year, and everyone who finishes gets a Timmy bobblehead! Of course, you can also get cheap tickets to see the game that night, too. <em>300</em> <BR> <BR> Here's the info: <BR> http://www.facebo... Thu, 3 Mar 2011 14:12:42 EST Spring Training Baseball I"M FREAKING OUT!!!!! BASEBALL SEASON IS UPON US!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! <BR> <BR> So in the spirit of things, I thought I'd start a new topic "Spring Training Baseball" so we can start to talk about all things Giants yet once again! Fri, 11 Feb 2011 01:54:44 EST Do you watch Saturday Baseball? Just wondering if anybody watches the Fox Baseball coverage? <em>38</em> Thu, 27 Jan 2011 13:43:04 EST Giants to have their own reality TV series Ok people, mixed feelings on this one... <BR> Showtime is going to be airing a reality show all about our Giants. <BR> <BR><BR>m/us_baseball <BR> <BR> Thoughts? Comments? <BR> Sat, 15 Jan 2011 14:46:50 EST Any goals you have during the off season? One of my goals is to fit into the VERY cheap "fear the beard" shirt I's a little snug right now, but come next baseball season I want that thing to be loose and comfy! Tue, 30 Nov 2010 13:58:39 EST Reactions to WINNING the World Series! I can't even explain how excited I am! <BR> <BR> Best quote so far: Sabean: "We have a lot of characters, and they have a lot of character" <BR> <BR> I feel like I have left my body! <BR> <BR> (more reaction to come soon, but wanted to start this post!) Tue, 2 Nov 2010 16:59:17 EST Your Favorite (Healthy) Orange and/or Black Food! Black beans <em>300</em> Thu, 28 Oct 2010 00:23:02 EST World Series Here We Come! Watching the Giants last night in the ninth inning was a nail biter - I was so glad when that last strike was called and so glad when they won!!!! <BR> Today I found out that I am going to Game One of the World Series!!!!! I'm SOO excited - my husband and his baseball fanatic friend have lined up tickets so we are going on Wednesday! I've never been to a World Series so I can't wait! <BR> GO GIANTS!!!!! Sun, 24 Oct 2010 22:18:05 EST Your Feeling About the Giants Winning the Pennant! I feel good; I knew that I would now. <BR> I feel nice; like sugar and spice. <BR> So good! So nice! <BR> I GOT YOU!!! <BR> <BR> WAY TO GO GIANTS!!!! Sun, 24 Oct 2010 11:30:17 EST Favorite Player? Will Clark <BR> #22 <BR> Will "The Thrill" Wed, 13 Oct 2010 21:50:38 EST Am I competitive??? yup! Ok peeps....look at the category points leader board thingy....we are #9 right now, the Braves Sparkteam is right behind us...UMMMMMM are we gonna make sure we beat them??? HECK YA! <BR> <BR> Get yo spark points on! Fri, 8 Oct 2010 23:19:45 EST Yes, I'm STILL a Bonds fan... an angry one, too. And I think steroids should be legal, 21 and over, like alcohol. <BR> <BR> And I think Pujols has gotten ahold of some good undetectable stuff, but at least he was nice enough to share it with Ortiz this year. Allegedly. <BR> <BR> And I don't understand why everyone is fine with A-Rod's steroid use but Bonds couldn't play his last two seasons. <BR> <BR> And I think the MLB owners knew what was going on, especially Bud Selig. <BR> <BR> And even if you're against steroids, you should agree... Mon, 13 Sep 2010 06:34:29 EST Beating the Dodgers Last night and the night before was great! Cain and Sanchez both pitched great games! Keep supporting the Giants - we need to pass up San Diego and keep on going! <em>244</em> Mon, 6 Sep 2010 10:37:22 EST Giants Rumor Mill So....a friend of mine has a theory: that the Giants are prepping to trade Johnathan Sanchez for a bat. <BR> Comments? Mon, 19 Jul 2010 02:07:20 EST Have you seen this t-shirt? If anyone sees the "I haight LA" tshirt for sale, let me know where! (there's a haight st. sign over a heart) Fri, 16 Apr 2010 01:46:28 EST How 'bout them Giants Right now the season opener home game is tied...and our win streak is on the line....
