Former San Francisco Giants closer Brian Wilson, signed a Minor League deal this past Tuesday (July, 30) with the Rival Dodgers.
This had all the Social Media outlets going crazy, people wishing bad things on Wilson (myself included, before I took a step back) hoping that his career ends before it starts back up etc. I didn’t think much of this, people are upset and rightfully so, he crossed enemy lines and signed with the enemy.
Burning Wilson jerseys, wishing injury and social media outcry is the buzz right now, but how far is too far?
I myself am a much invested Giants fan, more Orange and Black in my closet than anything else in my wardrobe. In this collection is my road grey Wilson jersey. As I look at this jersey, and the corresponding pictures of Wilson in the Dodger blue it does suck but then I do the adult thing and reminisce about the good times.
That image in 2010 of Wilson striking out Ryan Howard in the NLCS, then Nelson Cruz in the 2010 World Series, the salute to hi...

For me, the news that Brian Wilson chose to sign with the Dodgers of his own volition...

Former San Francisco Giants turned Los Angeles Dodgers closer Brian Wilson definitely walks to the beat of his own drummer. He proves that everyday with that epic beard of his his. The spandex tuxedo is a pretty good indicator. His 'date' with a Sasquatch is pretty telling as well.
As the latest piece of evidence we have this--his photo-shopped image of a special Dodgers...
Brian Wilson is a Los Angeles Dodger.
That doesn’t make me angry, just sad. I hate to see any great Giant to go on to wear the Dodger Blue, but him especially. I could handle him on just about any other team than the Dodgers.
