Showtime Sports' docu-series "The Franchise" following the San Francisco Giants 2011 season came through Philadelphia last week for their series against the Phillies. Here's a trailer.

Showtime Sports’ docu-series “The Franchise” following the San Francisco Giants throughout their 2011 season came through Philadelphia last week for their series against the first-place Phillies. I’ve yet to see the series, but after watching the below trailer, this Wednesday night seems like a good time to tune in.

One of the best moments from the trailer for this week’s episode features the Giants stretching on the field at Citizens Bank Park before last Tuesday’s game when the following conversation happens.

Unidentified Giants Player1: “When you walked in, did you smell the champagne on the floor still?”

Cody Ross: “Really?”

Player1: “Yeah. You didn’t notice it? As soon as you walked in. Then I got used
to it. Smelled like my apartment in college.”

Nasty burn. Like
champagne to the eyes.
