A Plethora Of Snotrockets


San Francisco Giants win. Los Angeles Dodgers lose. It doesn’t get much better than that.

Oh wait it does. Madison Bumgarner pitched today and he was in fine form. Bumgarner recorded the victory and in the process unloaded a colossal amount of snotrockets during today’s game. It was glorious. If you missed it then for shame.

It had been a long, cold snotrocketless winter but today’s game more than made up for it. Attaboy, Madison Bumgarner.

Bumgarner’s next start should be Friday, April 11 at home vs. the Colorado Rockies.  See you here or on Twitter for all the exciting snotrocket action.
