Congrats to the San Francisco Giants!! The San Francisco Giants swept the Detroit Tigers to win their second World Series in three seasons and seventh in franchise history!
The 2012 World Series matchup is set and the Detroit Tigers are bound for San Francisco to begin the latest edition of the Fall Classic. By virtue of outlasting the St. Louis Cardinals in the NLCS, the Giants own home-field advantage as the National League representative.
The Tigers and Giants will meet for the first time in the postseason.
The greatest show on TV premiers its third season tonight at 9pm on HBO. Boardwalk Empire. If you like any of the following movies, you will love Boardwalk Empire: Scarface, Goodfellas, Heat, Casino, Carlitos Way, The Departed. Boardwalk Empire has created some already notorious and notable characters from Nucky Thompson (the absolutely ruthless & crafty politician/gangster who makes most of his bread bootlegging liquor and don’t mind murkin’ a mufucka every now and then if necessary) Chalky White (the thick faced, take-no-shit-from-no-man country boy from the south who moved north to provide a better life for his family.) Arnold Rothstein, the very intelligent, cool and calculating Jewish gangster from New York who favors making money over murder. And lets not forget about Margaret Schroeder, the Irish ride-or-die bitch for Nucky who smashed the homie, gave away millions of dollars worth of Nucky’s land and still stands to tell about about it……well, at least up until season 3. Because its one thing we learned in the season 2 finale: NOBODY IS SAFE on Boardwalk Empire!! Anybody can get murked. RIP Jimmy.
See y’all tonight @ 9pm on HBO
