Nothing doing in Ninerland, so we might as well bask in the Warriors 2nd championship in 3 years. As a kid growing up, you hope to see your teams win it all, and as Flav posted on his blog, those of us who have been around here for a while have witnessed quite a few banner-raisings. With the Niners 5, the SF Giants 3, and now the Oak/SF Warriors 3, that’s a grand total of 11 championships from 1975 to 2017. Throw in the Oakland A’s 4 and Oakland Raiders 2 and the number goes up to 17 in 45 years. No mean feat.
What is crazy is I’ve been around for just about all of the playoff success of all these teams. I’ve told my son over and over not to take this success for granted. The Giants may not win another World Series for 50 years. The Warriors look like they have a solid team for the next few years but this poses the question, when do the 49ers return to the pinnacle? Are we on the right track? I’d like to think we are, but as we all know, it isn’t easy. We got oh so close in 2012, and looked to be poised for a few years of greatness, but we also got to see how fast this shit can unravel.
Anyhow, enjoy the bask, raise a drink in honor of the Warriors, and bring on the football season!
