As you may know, the Giants won the World Series last night. Three times in six years! I cried. I cried because of that same now pointless muscle memory that just keeps sucker punching me in the face.
After my World Series post the other day I did some further research on this whole Tiffany’s World Series charm business, and thanks to Pinterest found the 2010 and 2012 charms. I checked Tiffany’s just now and the newest one isn’t out yet. But I’d probably consider getting it for myself when it is.
Enjoy some Tiffany’s charms and then game day pics of my dad and me. It gives new meaning to “throwback Thursday”.
Even my dogs are fans.
My dad’s like “I’ll smile, but there’s a game going on, you know.”
I think this is opening day 2013. Yep, my dad tucked that doofy flag in his shirt collar. He had kind of a silly side to him once in a while.
I have no explanation as to why all my selfies mirror image themselves on my iPad. But this was from Metallica night! We both look tired…from rocking out so hard.
The irony that our last game together was an A’s game. SMH. I just noticed the guy sitting behind me is totally peering over my head.
That’s right, FANGLES. Fan gear + bangles = fangles dammit. Today is a good day for fake words.
As I mentioned in my earlier post the San Francisco Giants won the wild card game last night against the Pirates. I, naturally, am a Giants fan and frequently wear my black + orange gear, but while I was be-bangling myself this morning I realized I have no “official” gear. Well, except for ballcaps and hoodies. But what about official Giants jewelry? Does it even exist, you may wonder. And I am here to say, YES! It exists! Errgghh but it’s not that great
My favorite isn’t even a bracelet.
It’s a very simple, pretty 14ct gold SF pendant and it costs $917.99 because $920 would just be too much. Seriously, what do merchandisers have against round numbers? I know it’s a psychological sales technique but really? Does this *actually* sell better when priced at $917.99 vs $920?
The next best is on the complete other side of the spectrum. It’s the money clip. Psyche. It’s the cuff made from an actual baseball for the very reasonable price of $11.99
To find something unique and special, Etsy.com is the destination. Or crazy. Don’t forget to find something crazy… Errhh ahem. Sometimes Etsy is a total strike out for being crazy crafty and not enough Crazy Crab (I see you, fellow Giants fan! THAT’S what’s up.)
So what to do? Custom, that’s what. And Etsy has a plethora of custom options. Here’s just one $24 example (Pittsburgh, because I’m an asshole)… I recommend requesting San Francisco or Giants or Go Giants or Gigantes or Humm Baby (my fav because I may be an asshole but I’m old school).
