Just before the Giants won the game last night, FOX tried to put their championship in perspective. Specifically, they explained to viewers that the world was a very different place in 1954, the last time the Giants won the World Series.  Here was the on-screen graphic they used:

It was a different world! Indeed, it was an alternate universe in which the St. Louis Cardinals — who, last I checked, played west of the Mississippi River — didn’t even exist!

Joe Buck grew up in St. Louis, so I can only guess that steam was coming out of his ears as he read that graphic.
