Lincecum may be a Washington grunge head, but he wears bow ties -- so he defies stereotyping!
My (more or less) objective view of the Series players is that they are both excellent teams this year. The Rangers deserve a huge round of applause for beating the Yankees. That in and of itself is HUGE!
If it wasn't for the TX flags waving, you really wouldn't have even known that you were in the Lone Star State. Unlike Phillie fans, I felt the TX fans were very well behaved and not redneck.
But the Giants definitely have their share of "characters" and renegades. Kinda remind me of the Red Sox of 2004. I hope they never lose that individuality!
