Pitching for the Domincan Republic, at AT & T.

“The emotion is unbelievable when you play for your country,” he said. “Everybody was watching us in the Dominican.”

Afterward, everyone was partying. Asked how long the celebration lasted, Casilla flashed a wide smile. “Oh!” he said. “Nobody was sleeping.”

When you want to stay up all night and celebrate, what will you wear?  How about these gorgeous pieces from Stella & Dot?!

Romo is Starstruck!

Sergio Romo looked like an adorable, giddy child this weekend, holding his autographed football after the 49er game.

He says he was “starstruck,” meeting his favorite football players, and likewise,
the Niners were starstruck meeting our amazing closer!

I’d be starstruck if I met Sergio Romo, too…but until that happens…

What’s Theriot gonna wear tomorrow?!

Hunter Pence famously delivered the extemporaneous speech of a lifetime to his teammates, as they prepared to face the Reds in the Game 3 elimination match.  His passion earned him the role of Giants pre-game orator and Chief Inspiration Officer.

“I’m not ready to go home yet!  I want one more day with you guys!  I want to see what Theriot is gonna wear tomorrow!”-Hunter Pence 

And, what are you going to wear tomorrow when you celebrate Thanksgiving?

Baer Essentials

This week, Larry Baer, the Giants’ President and CEO, sent out a truly gracious letter to the fans.

Here’s my favorite part, which actually got me a bit verklempt.

“As I watched manager Bruce Bochy and his staff spill onto the field, I imagined what was happening in San Francisco. All of us who traveled to Detroit – including every player and coach – knew Coit Tower, the Ferry Building and City Hall were awash in orange light. We knew that fans had filled every inch of Civic Center Plaza to watch Game 4. We knew that throughout the Bay Area, living rooms and pubs were packed with people wearing Panda and Baby Giraffe hats, fake beards and “Vogelstrong” bracelets.

We also knew that no matter how talented the players or how ingenious the manager, no team can win a World Series Championship – much less two in three years – without a little magic.

Our magic is you.

I wish you could hear how our players talk about you, not just with each other but also with players on other teams. Brandon Belt says base runners on first base tell him they’ve never heard a park as loud as AT&T. Hunter Pence says that Giants fans are “the ultimate motivator.” Matt Cain calls you their 10th player.

So believe me when I tell you this: Our players carried all of you with them onto the field at Comerica Park. And they were unbeatable.”

Baer.  He’s essential.

Here are my  current Stella & Dot bare essentials! Cute and dependable, just like the Giants.

Of Civics and Celebration

Yesterday, I felt more like a True Blue American than I do on the average day.

I voted AND served Jury Duty (which was actually incredibly interesting!)

On route home from the Court house, I passed San Francisco’s City Hall, which is decked-out from the World Series celebration.

I love that they changed the banners from this year’s Giants campaign, “Together We’re Giant,”  to “Together We’re Champions.”

I think that same motto could apply to Barack and Michelle Obama.

What will you wear to celebrate this victory?

I think it calls for something BOLD and BLUE.
