Barry Bonds remains ringless, while the Anaheim Angels replaced their halo with a crown. Garret Anderson's bases-clearing double in the the third inning snapped a tie as the Angels captured their first World Series title with a 4-1 win over the San Francisco Giants. CNNSI.com's John Donovan laments that Game 7 lacked a fairy-tale ending.
