Of Rainbows And Snotrockets


In the early part of tonight’s game vs. the Diamondbacks a rainbow appeared over AT&T Park. Giants broadcasters Mike Krukow and Duane Kuiper were agog, as was the Giants TV director who as usual seemed interested in anything other than the game itself. Endless shots of the rainbow were shown on TV, to the point where I wondered if the game had been called on account of rainbow. Then just when people had calmed down and play on the field was being shown again a second rainbow appeared and everyone simultaneously peed their pants and wept uncontrollably over the sight. Or maybe it just seemed that way. Anyhow, I tuned in to the game for snotrockets, not everlasting rainbows, double or otherwise. So without further ado here are Madison Bumgarner’s snotrocket totals from tonight’s game:

  • Madison Bumgarner snotrocket (SNR) totals tonight: 5 SNR ― 0 vs. lefties, 2 vs. righties, 3 other. 1 double SNR.
  • Other Bumgarner snotrocket (SNR) totals of note: the 5 SNR in tonight’s game were the fewest amount of SNR blown during a game in 2012 since Bumgarner’s 1st start of the year (vs. the Diamondbacks in Arizona – 6 SNR on 04/07/12).

Note: there was 1 double rainbow and 1 double snotrocket in tonight’s game. What does this mean? Nothing. I just thought I’d mention it. You’re welcome.

Bumgarner’s next start should be Wednesday Sept. 12 vs. the Rockies at Denver. High altitude snotrockets. Looking forward to it.
