The Giants on Showtime

I'm sure plenty of you have heard about the new reality series that the Giants are going to be a part of on Showtime.

It's called "The Franchise" and it looks like it's gonna be awesome!  There is a preview below to get you pumped up for the series.  I want to watch it just so I can learn Andres Torres' workout routine.  The guy runs around his backyard in his bare feet throwing a cinderblock around and jumping up a hill!  This looks to be different than the show that MLB network did last year on the Phillies bullpen since it looks like it's gonna focus more on off the field stuff that the Giants do and their stories than "The Pen" did.

Plus the Giants team has more interesting personalities than the Phillies do.

I am going to have to get a subscription to Showtime just for this show!

For some reason there is a lack of official word about the show on Showtime's website (which is Sho.com and not Showtime.com as you would expect  it to be.)  Hell, this trailer is from some guy putting a video camera in front of his TV and recording it.  But at the end of the trailer it shows a sneak preview date of April 13.

So enjoy the video.  It will give you something to do for 3 minutes and 10 seconds while you wait for opening day!
