Very Important Theatre, Vol. XII

In which we give thanks and appreciation for one of the best parts of being a Giants fan.

It's Duane Kuiper's birthday. For a few minutes yet, anyway. That's a video up there of him calling his only home run. Don't ask why. Don't ask how. Just know it happened in real time, in real life.

(Hat-tip to Carmen for the great video)

In honor of Kuip's service to humanity, here's a list of Giants pitchers who have hit at least one home run since the team moved to San Francisco:
