DETROIT — Three weeks ago, it seemed impossible. A week-and-a-half ago, it seemed unimaginable.

But after what the San Francisco Giants accomplished on a frigid Sunday night in October, maybe we should vow never to use those words again in sports. (Click to read the entire ESPN article by Jayson Stark at ESPN.com)
