True. Anybody who thinks that any other team wouldn't of grabbed Bonds if they had a chance is just dumb though. He was a beast.
Of course plenty of teams would have wanted him. He was a fantastic player. I don't hold anything against the Giants for carrying him. He was one of my favorite athletes in the mid 2000s. I just think the Phillies have a better squad this year. It has been amazing how the Giants have changed their roster throughout the year, though. If anyone told me Sandoval would struggle but the Giants would still go to the NLCS when the season started, I'd probably laugh at them.

Ben Gibbard? They couldn't book Tony Bennett?

Seriously...lol. Wtf. Ben gibbard is a singer/songwriter, not a singer. It seems like singing an event/venue like this would be so so awkward.

i really liked how natural, genuine, and modest both ben and zooey were when they were singing.

usually, their is someone wailing or trying to hit the highest pitch note as possible while straining words and that is just annoying.

i think you saying him doing it acapella would be weird, is way weirder than that would actually be..

are you saying that you think he has the type of voice that is powerful enough for a commanding national anthem without instrumental backing? or that all national anthems are done without instruments? regardless, i'm curious to hear how it will sound. whatever, i don't watch baseball.

edit: just watched it. and it was weird. i love death cab though.
