On the cover of this week's Sports Illustrated, there is a picture of Madison Bumgarner holding his World Series MVP aloft, with a backdrop of confetti and a bright orange poncho.
@SFGiants Not only are you on our Twitter 100 list, but #MadBum is on this week's cover! pic.twitter.com/0296lUw9Mq— Sports Illustrated (@SInow) November 4, 2014
If you would have shown this issue to someone back in June or July, you would have blown some minds. "Holy crap," people from the past would say. "It's going to rain this year?" It's true. Also, the Giants won the World Series, and Madison Bumgarner is on the cover of Sports Illustrated, holding a shiny, shiny trophy. It's not the first time a Giants pitcher has been on the cover.
That's Charlie Brown-quality AAUGH right there.
And it's not the first time a Giants pitcher has been on the cover celebrating something exciting.
But it's the first time Madison Bumgarner has been on the cover. Rest of the world, Madison Bumgarner. Madison Bumgarner, rest of the world.
Take a moment to revisit this post and giggle a bit.
