Tuesday BP: The man, the myth, the legend of Game 7 Madison Bumgarner

With the Royals in town, what better time to re-live the magic that was Madison Bumgarner entering in relief in Game 7 of the 2014 World Series

Good morning, baseball fans!

What a weekend. I know it’s Tuesday, but it’s my writing-Monday (well, I mean, I do write these the day before so it is currently also my actual Monday, but I digress). It’s always a great time to watch the San Francisco Giants beat the Los Angeles Dodgers, let alone a sweep. You dream about these things, but they don’t often happen. So I hope you guys had as much fun as I did watching it!

Turning now to the series at hand, the Kansas City Royals are in town. And to keep the good vibes going (I hope, like I said these are usually written before night games the day before) I thought we could go down the nostalgia road and remember the awesomeness that was Madison Bumgarner nearly single-handedly crushing the hopes and dreams of the people of Kansas City with his entrance in relief in Game 7 of the 2014 World Series.

Here are a couple of my favorite videos, feel free to share your own!

The moment Bumgarner exits the bullpen to take the mound.

And the full game, if you’ve got the time!
