Photos: Giants Win World Series Game 2

The Giants won 2-0 on Thursday and Editor Jacob Bourne was there to witness it.

The magic number is two. Two more wins until the Giants are World Series Champs for the second time in three years.

The G-Men took care of the Tigers 2-0 in Game 2 on Thursday, and I got the chance to be there, taking it in from right field above the strike out Ks. Check out photos from the game above.

DO WE NOT STAND FOR THE STAR SPANGLED BANNER ANY MORE?? I was in a local drinking establishment last night and when our National Anthem was being played before the game I could count on one hand the number of people that stood up to respect our flag. I guess the taste of beer is better than the taste of freedom. I wonder which one we could live without longer. As much as I like beer, I'd prefer freedom. We live in the greatest country in the world, bar none. People have fought and died for the right to honor our flag. Ask any Vet and they'll back me up.
Mayra Flores de Marcotte October 26, 2012 at 05:03 PM
@Blake: I don't think we are simply talking about a baseball game anymore ... What do you think changed in our country that priorities and, as Frank said respect have changed?
Don't Tell Me What To Do October 26, 2012 at 05:04 PM
While there is no formal policy on this issue, Air Force protocol says its rules regarding standing and saluting or standing & placing hand over heart "appl(y) when the music is live and does not apply to broadcast music, such as radio or TV." If it's good enough for the military to think standing for The Star Spangled Banner isn't required for TV broadcasts then it's good enough for me. "People have fought and died for the right to honor our flag." - - -> While that sounds great, I hope that's not really true. I hope my father died for something much more than a flag. I'd say he fought for people to have the right NOT to honor the flag, for people to have the freedom to make the choice whether to stand or sit for the National Anthem because that's freedom.

Hey Dude . You sound like the typical American who is , or was, so conditioned and associated with the military and politics , that your view of the world is pathetically parochial. There is no such thing as absolute freedom anywhere in any country on Planet Earth. Some countries have more freedom for citizens that others . Some countries have very little freedom as in case of Afghanistan a medieval country, or communist ruled China, which is our main source of manufacturing. But Canada is a so-called free country, as is France , as is Japan as is Sweden..etc... . India the world's largest practicing democracy is free, as is our country the USA . All these countries have various forms of so-called freedom. And what about England our mother country who's language we use.. As for national anthems, every country has one, even the communist ruled China, from whom we borrow $billions, to pay for wars in IRAQ and Afghanistan, because we are going broke with a $16 trillion dollar national debt. I feel that all national anthems are like religions, used for crowd control. And used by political and military scoundrels to entice the masses to act like flocks of New Zealand sheep. Think "lobotomy" Dude
Robert Livesay October 26, 2012 at 05:14 PM
Frank you are correct. We have a former Poet Laureate that calls the American Flag "silly, tricolored rag". Go figure Frank. Yes he does have freedom of speech. But as I have said before that can come with consequences. I sure hope he figures it out some day.
Robert Livesay October 26, 2012 at 05:20 PM
I find it hard to believe that folks are saying what they are saying. But I also must remember this is a very Liberal/Socialist town. Frank I stand behind your statement and proud to say I believe in and love America.
Tom October 26, 2012 at 05:27 PM
If you want to see why a good example of lack of freedom look at China: http://news.yahoo.com/china-blocks-york-times-website-article-132900309--finance.html The ugly truth is the higher ups are getting rich in this so called communist country where everyone is equal. They lie and cheat even when caught. They are no good at baseball either unless they are allowed to lie about their age in the LLWS.
T. Gunter October 26, 2012 at 05:34 PM
Not that there are many TV stations that sign off any more. But, whenever I come across one that does, as they are playing the Nat. Anth.; I will rise up from were I am, regardless of the time, regardless of how drunk I am, and I will give a strong military salute. Often times I will even cry afterward. It helps me sleep better.
Robert Livesay October 26, 2012 at 05:40 PM
Good comment T. I thought you did not drink anymore. Is that true?
Dept. of Misinformation October 26, 2012 at 05:50 PM
You both sound drunk and belligerent to me.
Barb Valley October 26, 2012 at 05:53 PM
@Frank: I've been in restaurants when the Anthem was playing on TV and I've been in the car when it's been playing on the radio. Neither condusive to standing. You'll be pleased to know that when I'm at home and the Anthem is broadcast I do stand as does anyone with me the time.
Barb Valley October 26, 2012 at 06:00 PM
@Don't Tell Me: I am sorry for your loss and grateful for your father's service.
Sean October 26, 2012 at 06:16 PM
I've never heard of standing for the National Anthem when it was on TV or the radio.
Barb Valley October 26, 2012 at 06:16 PM
Now that the Giants will be playing at the AL team's home they'll need a DH. I've heard Sanchez's name as well as Huff's. But what about Arias?
Jacob Bourne (Editor) October 26, 2012 at 06:23 PM
Arias is a great pick. Sanchez can provide a bit of power but no speed. Can't be Huff. Probably not Theriot since he doesn't hit for average.
Galactic Cannibal October 26, 2012 at 06:39 PM
Tom Dude ..I want to respond to your comment "The ugly truth is the higher ups are getting rich in this so called communist country where everyone is equal. They lie and cheat even when caught. " ------------------------------------------------------------------ Here in the good old USA we mirror what the Chinese do. Except we are hypocritical about our actions. We also like and cheat in the U.S. ..... example we attacked IRAQ who did not attack the U.S. and used a lie (WMD) to start that war. Then we asked the Chinese for money to pay for that war to kill 000's of IRAQI's. But worst than that, we use CHINA for 85% of our manufacturing needs. Have you ever visited CHINA Dude ?? I have several times . And one of the things I remember was the vast number of Chinese who spit gobs of mucus on the streets and on footpaths. Its very disgusting . But then again their roasted Peking Duck is mouth watering, and so greasy you come back for more. Their beer is pussy piddle. But climbing their Great Wall is the best work out you will ever experience, as no two steps up, or down, are geometrically the same. Chill out Dude
DJ Funk October 26, 2012 at 06:47 PM
I would put Arias at 3B for defense and use Sandoval as the DH. Let's go, Giants!!
Tom October 26, 2012 at 06:51 PM
I go to China every quarter. I am VERY well versed in what is going on there. They are blocking the WWW so that their own people cant see what is going on there. Nice try at comparing them to us.
Barb Valley October 26, 2012 at 07:23 PM
I like the thought of using Arias at 3rd and Sandoval as DH. Makes a lot more sense than using either Sanchez or Huff. We're only two deep at Catcher and has seen his best days. We'll have to see what Bochy thinks.
Tom October 26, 2012 at 07:33 PM
I went to game one and it was so much fun. The crowd was having a love fest. Detroit now faces a must win game on their first home game. The Giants in reality need one of the next three. I like the odds.
Jacob Bourne (Editor) October 26, 2012 at 07:35 PM
That's smart. I liked seeing Arias at third in the ninth last night. Pablo makes some great defensive plays, but Arias is not as much of a wild card in the field.
Galactic Cannibal October 26, 2012 at 07:38 PM
Response to Tom ... Tommie Boy.. Hey Dude. WOW the Chinese are blocking WWW...yes they are So why is WAL MART . and the rest of the USA Commerce , buying from CHINA those evil communists. And using China's low cost labor to manufacture 85% of all our wants (needs) Like I said in previous posts , hypocrisy and greed rule our country their USA. We are no better or worse than others . Reason is we are all humans. So get our the Betsy Ross fly it, and stand to attention as you play our Nat Anthem Just like the Chinese do theirs ... See the Chinese in Tiananmen Square http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5WHo7ehqEVs Have a nice day dude. Try buying a Cuban Cigar and see what happens to you , in our so called "Land of the free" You will get time in U.S. jail for buying a Cuban Cigar ,,, the best cigars in the world I would say..
Dorothy Coakley October 26, 2012 at 08:04 PM
Tom is right...odds go to the Giants. Gonna be one grand Hallowe'en in SF this year.
Eat Crow October 26, 2012 at 08:31 PM
I am a vet who did time in the Middle East and Balkans and I honestly never heard of standing for the National Anthem when you see it being performed on TV or when you hear it on the radio. With that said, that was a nice pre-game tribute they did for vets. I, for one, truly appreciated it.
Barb Valley October 26, 2012 at 08:41 PM
My son and his friend were able to score SRO tix for 'only' $115 for Game 6 of the NLCS. He posted videos to his FB page and said the crowd was unbelievable. I can just imagine what it sounded like for Games 1 and 2 of the World Series. It was pretty noisy here at our house!
Dan Perez October 26, 2012 at 10:23 PM
If we win game 3, it is over for the Tigers. What makes it so great is that no one expected us to be here at this time of the year. Like the 49ers, the Giants have a way of pulling our strings. Never count them out!
Joe Feltcher October 26, 2012 at 10:55 PM
"We"? What position do you play Dan?
James Nelson October 28, 2012 at 03:49 AM
The Tigers are giving it up like on Prom Night, Easy little .... LOL

Going with Theriot in Game 4: a good idea.
