On November 1, 2010, a dream was fulfilled for a baseball franchise that moved to San Francisco in 1958. That night, the San Francisco Giants became the World Series Champions, and an entire city rejoiced. I personally will never forget that night.

The Steinborn Lift was originated by Henry “Milo” Steinborn, an old time strongman in the 1920’s. He was one of the first men ever to squat with 500 pounds, which is even more impressive from the standpoint that he loaded and unloaded the barbell onto his shoulders unassisted.

Today, Patxi’s had a special fundraiser. 10% of all their proceeds would go towards the JCCCNC for the Northern Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund. So, we decided to buy a half baked deep dish pizza, fire up the barbeque grill and cook the pizza on it.

Taking a break from the AFI 100, I decided it was time for me to watch one of the only John Hughes films I had not seen. This is the fifth film he directed. The ones that came before were “Sixteen Candles”, “The Breakfast Club”, “Weird Science”, and “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”, and all of those movies are ones that I love. This is definitely a departure from the teen angst films he had become known for making.

Today was a gorgeous day. It was mild outside, and I wanted to take a walk to Golden Gate Park. One of the places I’d always wanted to check out in the park is the Japanese Tea Garden. Originally built as part of the World’s Fair in 1894, it’s the oldest public Japanese garden in the United States.

Like I said in yesterday’s post, the Giants-Dodgers rivalry is the oldest in baseball. I was born and raised as a Giants fan.
