Dude. Really. Magic inside. Or something. Fairy dust? MAGIC.
After jumping up and down and screaming YESHELLYESOHMYGODOHMYGODOHMYGOD and freaking out the dogs and maybe even in the neighbors, but still in the post game fog of staring at the TV muttering I can't believe it I can't believe we won oh my god we did it, I had the following conversation with my dad (who, for reference, was born in 1955).
Me (muttered, and mostly to myself): Finally. Fucking finally. We won a World Series in my lifetime. I can't believe it.
My dad: Your lifetime? YOUR LIFETIME? I listened to the entire 1962 World Series on the radio in my room when I was six years old. I have been walking, eating, breathing Giants baseball since I was a toddler, since my first game, since they first moved here, in 1958. Your lifetime? I'm just glad we won a World Series in my lifetime. You have plenty more lifetime to live there Missy.
