ESPN’s Pardon The Interruption featured a segment about famous duos yesterday, a mixture of Hollywood and the Sports World. I was hoping they would mention Abbot and Costello but I guess it wasn’t in the cards.
Anyway, it got me to thinking about Giants’ equivalents.
John Day and Jim Mutrie.
The founding fathers. The course of New York’s and the National League’s history is different without them.
McGraw and Mathewson. Team and room mates. There’s no Giants dynasty without them.
Mays and Durocher. Genuine affection.
Clark and Thompson. Came up together. Spent 8 seasons as right side regulars. Embodied Giants' youth movement. Made pennant clinching play in 1989.
Magowan and Sabean. Give ‘em lots of credit for turning Giants around, but where would they be without Barry?
Me and my wife. She puts up with my crazy love affair with the Giants and baseball. Where would I be without her?
