  • Watching the Giants Victory Parade now from Mkt. St. in SF, it looks so much like Mardi Gras with floats, cable cars, & sooooo much noise!! Sr. Team Advisor Willie McCovey coming by, Say Hey Kid Willie Mays too, both retired nos. by the team, driving by in vintage '50s Cadillacs with the huge tailfins to commerate the 1st Giants WS win since 1956, everybody going crazy in The City!

    Giants had the whole pkg. with the beards, the slogan (Sweet Torture), the Cy Young Award winners, nobody but nobody picked this team to win anything back in the Spring/Summer -- The East Coast pundits who dissed them can eat it, there's SF Mayor Gavin Newsom, he won the Lt. Gov. of California race yesterday too.

    On Monday night when they won you could hear people honking & screaming all over the Bay Area at around 8 PM PDT, I haven't heard or seen anything like that here since the 49ers took their 5th Super Bowl win in the 90s.

      Cause there hasn't been anything Champion-worthy enough to talk about.

          That was a really nice touch to have Willie Mays and Willie Mac near the front of the parade and then have Will Clark, JT, and Richie after it celebrating the history of the team. I wish Barry was there.

            Where is the best place to find the gear? Should I just go to the stadium? Is there a shop set up there? It's close to my classes so that would be nice.

            • A funny sight coming home. Three Giants fans were sitting in Union Square dogging this Padres fan. All he could do was smile and walk off, his back turned, with a light Arsenio Hall fist pump saying "we'll be back" while the fans continued to torment him. I tried not to laugh, but I couldn't help it.

              I also find it amusing that some people in the city that I've encountered who aren't Giants fans or perhaps fans of any sport in general are complaining about the noise and the celebration. A small part of me inside feels like they need to be ***** slapped. One of the most pivotal moments in the history of the city has occurred and you have the nerve to complain. It's one day of the year and a celebration of the Giants world championship isn't going to ruin your little lives. I'm not that big a fan of baseball, but I still had loads of fun and understand the importance this title means to the city. And I have just as many obligations as the next average joe.

              • I can't believe free agency starts this Sunday! There's a rumor that the Giants may be involved in the Carl Crawford sweepstakes. Out of the names out there, he definitely exciters me the most as he has power, speed and plays very good defense. He looks like a no-brainer for an everyday LF, with them re-signing Babe Ross and playing him in RF. Torres will be in CF, and Rowand and Shierholtz will continue to be in the rotation providing good D and timely hitting.

                Crawford would help us with some much needed steals and provide some protection for Huff (assuming he is re-signed) and Posey.

                  I live in Santa Rosa and got my gear at the mall. I think team store (by the stadium) would be best place to hit in San Francisco. I also believe there is a Giants team store by SFO as well that has a ton of gear.

                    Yeah it is fast this season. Funny that when that final out was made that a few of the Giants automatically became free agents. Would love to see SF make a run at Crawford. But I have a feeling that the bidding will get out of control for him. Maybe instead look to trade Sanchez, with his value high, for a bat like Prince or Uggla. I think it was Jayson Stark who said Sanchez for Delmon Young could be possible.

                    Baggs says he (Huff) is going to get an offer made soon. They are going to be in talks with Uribe and Rent got his opition declined.

                      Street vendors setting up as early as possible in the South Bay, I saw 3 on Friday just around SJ, Palo Alto on the El Camino, etc. & various ppl. wearing them

                      They can't rush Giants WS champs t-shirts, flags & caps out there fast enough. They will be a big stocking stuffer item in the Bay Area this Xmas.

                      • And the title defense begins.

                        Huff re-signed to a 2 year deal with club option for 3rd year:

                        YES!


                        It was also awesome to see 3 members of the World Series champions placed among the top 13 in voting -- first baseman Aubrey Huff (seventh, with 70 points), catcher Buster Posey (11th, 40) and closer Brian Wilson (13th, 28).

                        • Hai gaiz ... The Giants won the ************* World Series. I feel like I need to post about this quite often.
                          The Brian Sabean sig is no more. I disagreed with you on so many levels. And then you went out and built a dynasty. I am lame.

                              I frequently gloat to my students that their Rangers lost to my Giants.

                              Also, my computer's background on the projector is a large SF logo.

                                It's strange how different it is to be in off-season mode as the defending champs. When news broke, last week, of the Braves getting Uggla for a blue light special deal. Pre World Series win WWBBD would have spent a week cursing out inanimate objects around the house for how terrible Sabs is for not getting a deal done. But now I just shrugged at the news and carried on. This must be nirvana.
