Last night, OpenTable’s HQ hometown baseball team, the San Francisco Giants, won the World Series. Yay, Giants! Are you sad the Series is over? I am. In fact, I’m sure I speak for everyone at OpenTable (except for Chip O’Connell. Sorry, Chip!) when I say that we’re all sad it has ended, but only because we’d like to relive the last minutes of Game 5 again. And again. And again. And… sorry, I digress. So, you’re sad the Series is over. On top of that, this weekend is the weekend that we turn back the clocks, and that’s always an agent of sadness, what with it getting darker earlier EVERY SINGLE DAY until December 21st. Boo!
