Remember the Giants former payroll secretary who was arrested for embezzlement? And who was caught, not because of someone’s shrewd eye, but because she forged letters explaining why she was getting all of those extra pay checks, thereby creating her own red flags?  Yeah, that was awesome.

Well, she’s going to jail for 21 months:

Robin O’Connor, of American Canyon, was fired by the team last July after it was discovered she had been transferring team funds to her personal bank accounts over the prior year. Prosecutors said she used some of the money to pay off debts, but also toward a second home in San Diego, spa visits, pet grooming, home improvements and travel.

She stole $2.2 million and has returned roughly $1.6 million of it. Which shows just how responsible she was, given that she was probably saving that money for retirement and thus had it ready to return. Much better than spending the whole shebang on pet grooming. $600,000 for that kind of thing is plenty.

In other news, Barry Bonds remains the worst criminal in the history of San Francisco sports.

      Also, “penis” is not a “cuss word.” Unless maybe you’re Rick Santorum.

      Alas, the Giants pointed the gun at their own head rather than Zito’s head.
