This morning I woke up with a nasty cold. It was bound to happen, everyone in the house has been sick for days. But duty called, so off to work I went. When I got to the Staten Island Ferry I noticed an unusually large number of school-aged children. At first I thought it was a class trip, but then I realized that they were all wearing a similar uniform. Of course, today was the ticker tape parade for the Giants.
Don’t misunderstand, I support the team. If it were the Yankees I might just have been out there with them. It’s just that I was sick, and I was in no mood to hear a few hundred people screaming “LET’S GO GIANTS” in my ear for 30 minutes. The worst part was that since I was sick I came home early and had to ride the boat with more Giants fans on the way home.
