Attention 90s kids: The Giants made a “Full House” parody

27 Comments

I dunno. I’m not a 90s kid. The first time I saw Bob Saget he was telling SUPER off-color jokes about how he “married his girlfriend of seven years,” and then said that’s how old she was, he’s going to jail. The whole vanilla sitcom portion of his career sort of eluded me.

I was an 80s kid. I never got the appeal of “Full House.” I watched “Brady Bunch” reruns and shows like “Matt Houston” and “Hunter.” Someone give me a “Hunter” parody with Hunter Pence. THEN we’ll have something.

But I guess this is OK too.

Astros outfielder George Springer has set another postseason home run record. He swatted a solo home run off of Nationals reliever Tanner Rainey to lead off the bottom of the seventh inning, reducing the Nationals’ lead to 5-3. It marked his fifth consecutive World Series game with a home run, breaking a tie with Reggie Jackson and Lou Gehrig to set a new record, per MLB.com’s Sarah Langs.

Springer homered in Games 4 through 7 in the 2017 World Series against the Dodgers. The Astros, of course, ultimately won the series to earn the franchise’s first championship.

Springer hadn’t had the best showing in the 2019 playoffs, as he entered Tuesday’s action batting .152/.235/.283 across 51 plate appearances.
