Do you remember where you were when the Giants won the World Series? I know I do. And I'm sure we'd all have our own anecdotes and memories of that special moment in the life of a Giants fan. But Comcast SportsNet has taken it a step further with their 'Search for the World Championship Baby" as they try to find Giants fans that are not even born yet.
To commemorate the nine month anniversary of the Giants World Series win, Comcast is looking for a Giants championship lovechild, one that is born as close as possible to 7:54 p.m. PT on August 1, 2010; the official nine month anniversary to the minute of Brian Wilson fanning Nelson Cruz for the last out of game 5.
I'm sure there are some expectant Giants fans around the Bay Area right now that consummated their love of their team with a significant other on that magical a night, a night described like this in the Comcast press release:
Giants fans worldwide erupted in celebration. Over five decades of pent-up hope led to euphoria and heart-pumping delirium throughout the ranks of the Giants Faithful. Fireworks lit up the night, champagne corks popped, elation filled the streets and, no doubt, some people chose to celebrate more...privately.
Sounds like an introduction to a terrible romance novel...
But all innuendo aside, to enter the contest you must sign up online at CSNBayArea.com before July 31, 2011 at 5:00 p.m. PT. Parents will then have until August 15 to provide Comcast with all the official documentation, as well as the date and time of the child's birth to compete for the grand prize. The baby born closest to 7:54 p.m. PT on August 1 will be the winner of a $2,010 Giants gift card, a Commemorative brick paver at AT&T Park with the baby's name and the "Comcast SportsNet 2010 Giants World Championship Baby" title, as well as getting your baby's birth certificate autographed by the San Francisco Giants.
Not a bad way to be welcomed to the world is it?
