Glorious Snotrockets


The San Francisco Giants did many fine things tonight. They scored 9 runs and pummeled the Dodgers (ew). They stayed 1 game ahead of the St. Louis Cardinals in the race for the second Wild Card spot. Buster Posey and Angel Pagan took down two idiots who ran onto the field. And God er I mean Madison Bumgarner blew snotrockets, hit a two run double and won the game. Oh and this also happened:



Very cool and congratulations Mr. Bumgarner!

Obvious tweet is obvious:

Bumgarner’s regular snotrocket screencapper  @SanDiegoGiants was on assignment Friday night so his partner in crime @iamjerklord filled in for him and did such an admirable job that:




First snotrocket of the game:



Sly and tied snotrocket in the top of the 2nd inning:



Very rare and sure to be a collector’s item – the only known split screen snotrocket screencap in existence, with Bumgarner blowing a snotrocket while sharing the screen with the Dodger’s Yasiel Puig (ew):



Classic front-facing nose bender of a snotrocket:



Slick snotrocket in the bottom of the 4th inning:



Another at-bat snotrocket, this time in the bottom of the 6th inning:



Top of the 7th and leading by 6 runs snotrocket:



Grab some pine Puig, you just got snotrocketed:

Take heed of my tweet edition:



Madison Bumgarner’s next start should be…? At this time it’s still not 100% certain that the Giants will be appearing in the postseason. We’ll find out in the next couple of days. In the meantime stay strong, support our Giants and most of all give thanks that Madison Bumgarner exists.

Soggy Snotrockets


The San Francisco Giants were in Philadelphia Wednesday night. Also in Philly last night: a 59 minute non-rain rain delay, then some actual rain but no rain delay, some lightning

Giants-2014-07-23-vs Phillies-Lightning


and a whole lot of snotrockets.  Plus a fabulously pitched game by Madison Bumgarner. Plus a Giants win. But the snotrockets, you say. What about the snotrockets? Of course. Here we go.

Here are Madison Bumgarner’s snotrocket totals and other vital statistics for Wednesday, July 23, 2014 on the road vs. the Philadelphia Phillies:

  • Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific inning was the 8th in which he blew 6 snotrockets.
  • Bumgarner’s 18 SNR (snotrockets) in tonight’s game is his highest total of snotrockets blown since 05/25/14 (19 SNR vs. the Minnesota Twins).
  • Madison Bumgarner now with 275 snotrockets in this 2014 season.


The world’s record holder for most awesome Bumgarner snotrocket screencaps, @SanDiegoGiants, produced some rainy day winners last night. Settle in and enjoy, you’re going to be here a while,  because like I mentioned earlier Bumgarner produced a metric ton of mucus in last night’s game. Bonus: Giants catcher Buster Posey made a special guest appearance in several snotrocket screencaps. Here are Bumgarner and Posey and a snotrocket in the 2nd inning:



And another one immediately afterward:



A solo snotrocket also in the 2nd, after pitching a scoreless inning:



Would a little rain affect Madison Bumgarner’s dedication to the job of snotrocketing? I think not:



An at-bat snotrocket in the 5th inning:

Bumgarner keeping up his steady snotrocket pace, this time in the bottom of the 5th inning:



Bumgarner showed no signs of slowing down as the game wore on. In the 8th inning:

Tweets-FL-Snotrockets Fast Furious


Bumgarner was busy in the 8th, with runners on base and snotrockets in the air:



Even though it was a stressful inning Madison Bumgarner’s the best and he always finds the time to snotrocket:



The last snotrocket of the game was again witnessed by Buster Posey:



Bonus screencap: Bumgarner found a new place to wear his glove:

Snotrocket screencapper extraordinaire @SanDiegoGiants tweeted some great Bumgarner snotrockets from yesterday’s game. I like the interesting composition on this one:

And then everyone’s favorite, the classic double snotrocket:


But of course you want close-ups. Left nostril:


And the right nostril:


Madison Bumgarner’s next start should be Tuesday, April 22 on the road vs. the Colorado Rockies. High altitude snotrockets! See you here or on Twitter for all the exciting snotrocket action.
