Giants Barry Zito Pitches with Heart in World Series



It is always an uplifting experience when I see a real MLB World Series baseball hero, such as San Francisco Giants baseball pitcher Barry Zito, playing baseball with tremendous heart and momentum. I love the Rocky movies starring actor Sylvester Stallone. The film saga that begins with the character Rocky Balboa, the story of an insignificant boxer who ends up as a boxing champion and hero, deserves its wide appeal and critical acclaim. Barry Zito reminds me that Rocky is not merely a figment of Sylvester Stallone's creative imagination. The only difference between Rock and Zito is that Rocky Balboa is a boxer and Barry Zito is a baseball pitcher.

Thanks mostly to baseball pitcher Barry Zito, a lefty, Game 1 of the 2012 World Series on Wednesday, October 24, ended  with an incredible win for the San Francisco Giants against the Detroit Tigers and its star pitcher, Justin Verlander.

The final score of Game 1:
  • San Francisco Giants  - 8
  • Detroit Tigers - 3  
Avid St. Louis Cardinals fans are disappointed with the 2012 playoffs. St. Louis Cardinals fans may not want to admit the truth about the unbelievable pitches delivered by San Franciso Giants pitcher Barry Zito during the current baseball season. Yet, no one can deny that Barry Zito is presently the new MLB baseball hero of the 2012 World Series baseball games.

During Game 5 of the playoffs, Barry Zito struck out one St. Louis Cardinal after another, equaling a total of six St. Louis Cardinals hitters. Pitcher Barry Zito won the San Francisco Giants a rightful place in the 2012 World Series. Barry Zito continued to steal the show during Game 1 of the 2012 World Series.

Winning Game 1 was not an accidental win for the San Francisco Giants. The first baseball game of the 2012 World Series thrilled San Francisco Giants fans as they watched star pitcher Barry Zito pitch with tremendous skill and heart. Fans were also thrilled by hitter Pablo Sandoval's three amazing home runs and the unending and energetic momentum displayed by the San Francisco Giants.

What some baseball fans may not know is that Barry Zito has seen some rough times, yet he has never given up on his natural gift or the love of the game. Brian Sabean, the General Manager of the San Francisco Giants, says the following about Giants pitcher Barry Zito: "He's been through a lot, obviously. He took the beatings." Sabean also mentioned the following sentiment about Barry Zito: "In his own way he's never stopped believing and he's made changes. He's made changes when he had to."

In his own words, San Francisco Giants star pitcher Barry Zito says, "In this game, sometimes we forget at times what we're all capable of, and I think those are the times when we struggle a little bit." These profound words have meaning for every person who struggles to overcome difficult situations in life.

Romney Wins Debate with Style, Grace and Wit

The outcome of the first 2012 Presidential Debate met with similar reactions from numerous liberals and conservatives. Did I say liberals? You bet! Liberal Michael Moore stated that Obama's performance was lack-luster. In fact, progressive liberal Michael Moore literally exploded on Twitter last night when he admitted that Obama clearly lost the debate to Romney. Moore posted approximately 30 Tweets on Twitter, including the following remarks:

“Obama please be Obama! You sound like a Democrat (wimpy)." 1
“Romney looks like he's been lit different - brighter, sharper. You can see the difference by comparing their shirts." 2

Other commentators, including liberal Democrats and conservative Republicans, were quick to make positive comments about Mitt Romney's strength during the first 2012 Presidential Debate that aired on numerous televisions stations nationwide on Wednesday night. Various major news reports indicate that Mitt Romney won the debate in a grand style, convincing at least two thirds of American voters that he is the man who can get the economy rolling in positive territory.

Anyone who watched the debate knows that Mitt Romney appeared as a positive and knowledgeable candidate with a passion to restore jobs back to the many unemployed American workers. The other truth is that Obama appeared weak, confused, nervous and robotic. Mitt Romney displayed warmth, humor, wit and confidence, whereas Obama may as well have been a clone or an automaton. Romney even managed to squeeze in a humorous comment about Big Bird. Romney stated that he loves Big Bird, one of the animated stars of Sesame Street, but added that he does not intend to dole out money to support these types of PBS shows.


The first 2012 Presidential Debate is a clear indicator that Americans are fed up with four monotonous and unproductive years of Obama's mockery of leadership skills, Obamacare (Obama's Healthcare Bill) and all of  Obama's other socialist agendas for America. Mitt Romney has an excellent chance of winning the 2012 Presidential Election. If so, this means that Americans will once again have the freedom to choose their own insurance companies, or even decide they do not want to pay for insurance coverage. Americans will have opportunities to turn their hopes for employment into tangible jobs that pay them real wages. Mitt Romney won the first 2012 Presidential debate with style and grace as he managed to conquer the dull and witless tactics displayed by Obama.

Nancy Pelosi is "Just Wrong" about her Values

Nancy Pelosi inspired Democrats attending the Democratic Convention on Wednesday, September 5, with the following mantra: "It's just plain wrong." This is the type of chant that Democrats love to repeat. Pelosi erroneously stated that Republicans are against the reproductive health of women! She used these words instead of the abortion word. I have this to say to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi: "Ms. Pelosi, with all due respect, you are just plain wrong!" Many Republicans are against abortion, but abortion and reproductive health are two different and unrelated issues. Is it healthy to get an abortion? Are Republicans against women having healthy reproductive systems? This is either another false conspiracy theory or it is a deliberately misleading statement.

The Views Expressed by Liberal Democrats are "just plain wrong"

Liberal democrats believe that all of the ideals and values Republicans represent are "just plain wrong." Actually, what is "just plain wrong" is the prominent views of the Democratic party. Democrats simply do not understand the truth about many important issues. For instance, Tuesday's Democratic National Convention witnessed Democratic leaders boasting about the values and top political agendas favored by Democrats: abortion and gay marriage.

President Barack Obama is the First U.S. President to Publicly Support Gay Marriage

In fact, a point was made by one of the speakers at the Democratic Convention on Tuesday that Barack Obama is the first President of the United States of America to officially stand up for gay marriage. Yes, this is what Democrats offer to Americans: Let every woman have the right to get an abortion, and allow every gay man and woman to get married.

Agendas Professed by Democratic Leaders are not the Main Issues Facing Many Americans

These are evidently two of the most important issues represented by Democratic leaders at the 2012 Democratic National Convention. I'm sorry to inform Nancy Pelosi and those Democrats who agree with her unjustifiable diatribe that she, along with her fellow Democratic leaders, are all "just plain wrong" about Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan's plans to save America from economic disaster. Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan understand the issues that are important to the majority of American voters, and these two Republican candidates offer Americans real hope for their futures.

Pelosi Substitutes Reproductive Health for Abortion

Nancy Pelosi, the House Minority Leader, had the audacity to say that Republicans fight against the reproductive health of women. Nancy Pelosi expressed this sentiment at the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday. It is obvious that she was referring to abortion, but she did not have enough chutzpah to say the politically incorrect abortion word. Instead, Pelosi would have Americans believe the lie that Republicans want to damage the reproductive health of women.

Nancy Pelosi Must Get her Information from an Unknown Planet

I would like to ask Nancy Pelosi where she gets her information. It is news to me that women are protecting their reproductive organs when they have abortions. This is just one more lie stemming from the lips of Democrats at the 2012 Democratic National Convention. Truthfully, it is difficult to stomach the words that emanate from the mouths of some Democratic leaders.


Four More Years of Barack Obama's "Leadership" Means Four More Years of Unemployment for Many Americans

This is the bottom line: A vote for Barack Obama to reside in the Oval Office for "four more years" (another favorite Democratic mantra) is a vote in favor of abortion, gay marriage and unemployement. Serious American voters need to forget about Barack Obama sitting in the Oval Office for another four years. Americans need Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan in the White House. Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are more than capable of steering America in the right direction.

2012 RNC Speeches Captivate Republican Hearts

I spent much of the week watching the fantastic speeches given at the Republican National Convention (RNC) in Tampa, Florida. Ann Romney set the place ablaze with her speech. I am amazed at the eloquent words spoken by Condoleezza Rice and the wise words delivered by New Jersey Governor Chris Christie when he said that his mother taught him that respect is more important than love. Rick Santorum gave a moving speech in which he mentioned the plight of the unborn who are needlessly aborted.

All of the Republican senators delivered excellent speeches. Who could not appreciate the excellent speech delivered by Marco Rubio, the U.S. Senator representing Florida? Of course, Mitt Romney's outstanding speech was highly anticipated, and it did not disappoint the large crowd who interrupted it to unanimously shout "U.S.A." several times. A commentator mentioned that Mitt Romney wrote the speech himself. My opinion is that Mitt Romney's acceptance speech reflects the words of a humble and sincere man who wants to get America back on track.

My conservative friends on Facebook agree that the Republican National Convention was a huge success. Many Facebook conservatives are posting glowing comments about the various speeches, especially those given by Ann Romney, Paul Ryan and Gov. Mitt Romney (in that order).

If you missed any of the Republican National Convention speeches, you can listen to a few of them by clicking the following links:

Santorum Answers Questions at Town Hall Teleconference

I recently attended a live, one hour political telethon during which Rick Santorum answered questions. The political teleconference focused on the 2012 presidential election, and it was held from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Pacific Time on Thursday, January 5, 2012. The Presidential Series National Tele-Town Hall was sponsored by the Faith and Freedom Coalition, and my attendance was the result of an accepted invitation from a Facebook group I belong to called Conservative Republican Women.

Rick Santorum takes the time to answer questions during a hectic day in New Hampshire

Rick Santorum was late for the meeting because over 1,000 voters attended his New Hampshire rally that same day, and the senator stayed on a bit to answer questions before joining in on the teleconference. Those who attended the conference were instructed to press the star key, followed by the number three, on their telephones if they wanted to ask any questions. While waiting for Rick Santorum to join the group of several thousand interested individuals, a campaign representative politely answered some of the questions addressed to the Santorum campaign. Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum then joined the teleconference and replied to questions posed by various attendants.

Rick Santorum wrote the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban bill

The fact that Rick Santorum authored the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban bill, which was signed by President George W. Bush, was mentioned by one of the sponsors of the teleconference. This bill was designed to ban partial birth abortions. This Republican presidential candidate previously served in the House of Representatives and was the Senate Republican Conference Chairman. He also authored a bestselling book entitled It Takes a Family. Rick Santorum is the proud father of seven children, so this is a man who really does care about families and family values. His answers to questions were truthful, humble, yet filled with confidence. At the close of the Presidential Series National Tele-Town Hall, he asked those attending the conference to pray for him, his wife Karen and his family. He also personally invited voters who wish to offer him assistance during his presidential campaign to visit his personal website.

Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum practically tied the Iowa Republican Caucus on January 3, 2012, with Mitt Romney receiving receiving 24.6 percent of the vote and Rick Santorum receiving 24.5 percent. Mitt Romney is also a family man who is married to Ann, his high school sweetheart, and they are the proud parents of five sons and the grandparents of ten grandchildren. Both Romney and Santorum appear to have integrity, sound values and excellent Republican tenets by which they live their lives. Either one of these candidates far surpasses any requirements for a U.S. President who truly loves the United States of America.
