Election Day - November 2, 2010

The San Francisco Giants powered by their great pitching staff won the 2010 World Series.  It was their 6th World Championship and first since 1954.

In 1954, Dwight Eisenhower was President, gas was 21 cents per gallon and future U.S. Senator Edward M. Kennedy was graduating from Harvard.  Without the help of Willie Mays, the 2010 Giants peaked at the right time and defeated Rangers‘ ace Cliff Lee for a second time.

Today is election day throughout the United States.  Exercise your right and vote.
