Which team is the better story? A's or Giants? Depends on where you're coming from.
(Full disclosure: I'm an A's fan and grew up in Oakland splitting time from metal shop going gaga over Captain Sal and Reggie Jackson)
I'm going out on a limb and will tell you the Bay Area sports media says the A's are sexier than the Giants. The A's are cardiac kids and the Giants are down home taking care of business.
I hate the split cap up above. You're either Giants or A's--can't be both. But I sense the Coliseum has tarped the imagination of even non-sports fans. Have you seen what the A's did? I know, the Giants are fun too. Speaking of fun, this area is on full-throttle mode. Adrenaline and fumes in Oakland, complete with pies and tarps. Business as usual in San Francisco.
Ken Korach, I envision a few more screaming calls tonight. Jon Miller, Kruk and Kuip: Are you ready for all this? (Giants fans, I have no idea what will happen in Cincinnati, but all this excitement in the Bay Area is good.)
Another Bay Bridge series? Why the hell not.
