Tipping Point...
The Giants have done the unthinkable… After losing two games at home, they shocked the Cincinnati Reds by taking three games in a row at their ballpark.  It was every bit as riveting as the World Series.  Now they’ll move on to the NLCS on Sunday, a prospect thought to be extremely remote last weekend.  To me, the low point was in Game 2, when Jose Mijares slammed his glove down in the dugout, the picture of frustration and hopelessness.  But here comes Reverend Hunter Pence, who joined the club barely nine weeks ago.  His impassioned pre-game speech did something.  I can’t explain it… except it seemed to bring this disparate bunch together, and the results speak for themselves.  Yeah, Reverend Pence was the Tipping Point in a series that won’t be soon forgotten.  Oh, and Buster’s grand slam didn’t hurt, either.

The First Playoff Game...
Thanks to the Minnesota Vikings for that humiliating beat down, which was directly responsible for the video game scores that would follow in the next two wins.. 79-3.  Yeah, the experts are still fawning over New England, Houston, the Bears, Atlanta, the Ravens and of course the World Champion New York Giants.  The 49ers?  Strictly second tier.  As for the Giants, who come to Candlestick  Sunday, Jim Harbaugh will say they’ve got an elite quarterback, all the weapons, and they’ll give us all we can handle.   Only this time, he’ll actually mean it.  Yeah, it’ll be the first playoff game of the season.  At least it’ll feel like it.  By the way, if you can’t get excited about the New York Giants taking on the 49ers, take a cab to the airport and catch the first flight to Palookaville… cuz you don’t belong here.  Ted Robinson and Eric Davis will have all the action… 1 o’clock Sunday on ESPN 1320.
