Everybody Dance!

Giants fans always have a little bit of Chex mix lying around, just in case of an emergency pity party. We whine. We curse. We grumble. We're Giants fans, and it's in our blood. This causes problems with the Red Cross, but they can usually pasteurize the stuff out.

There it is, the standard five-game winning streak post. The idea of the semi-colon smiley face is not in the bylaws as of yet, but has a good chance to stick around.

Your turn. This is the thread for ridiculous optimism, deserved or not.
