Why, Giants? WHY???

Today the Three Fat Birdies hit AT&T Park to watch the San Francisco Giants play the Arizona Diamondbacks.

 Some of you may be confused.  Why, you might be asking, would Three Fat Birdies, who spend their days crafting and baking, be interested in baseball?  Well, for one thing, there are cute boys involved:

And secondly, we here at Three Fat Birdies are friendly to all members of the animal kingdom.  Except of course for Arizona Diamondbacks, who are evil, terrible snakes who cannot be trusted.  Basically we're friendly to all species of animals who aren't threatening to knock the Giants out of the playoffs.  And we especially enjoy visiting the wildlife on the Giants team:

It all started so well!  Cody Ross started the game with a lead-off home run!  And Ryan Vogelsang pitched 7 fantastic innings.  But then things started going horribly, horribly wrong.  Somewhere in the middle of the 8th inning, I remembered that the Giants don't play baseball.  They play TORTURE-BALL.  We lost 1 to 4.

The moral of the story?  Sometimes even wearing your finest Orange and Black isn't enough to guaranty victory.  Not even when there are pom-poms involved:
