That's awesome!

I was at the Civic Center in the City...Couldnt stay away-this is a long time coming for SF.

And it was uber convenient on BART from Rockridge.

I just watched KTVU for a while and they showed Chestnut Street, it was totally packed with people and they blocked traffic and a bunch of people got on top of two stopped Muni buses, LOL!!! It's really quiet here in Oakland but that's ok. I sure picked a time to move out of SF.
Well, I don't even have any Giants' gear so I wore my A's cap and didnt encounter any rudeness whatsoever in the City-LOL

I say let them have their moment-they finally deserve to celebrate!

Even the sports bars in Los Angeles were packed with cheering customers & that's amazing considering how much the Giants are hated here.

My wife and I were at ATnT park right after the win and just got home. The crowd just gets bigger and bigger even we left 2 hours later. What a great night to be part of? The crowd is crazy and very friendly.

Congrats SF Giants! Yes, I am a bandwagoner but a great way to start it. Now I got my LA Lakers and SF Giants to cheer for.

To EastBayDefecator and FootballGeeK, go suck on an egg will you?!?

LMAO... I'm a woman who doesn't care enough about sports to even know that, let alone to be called an "ingrate" for (jokingly) dissing the Padres. Honestly, I couldn't even remember who played in San Diego when I started typing that. Sheesh, some people take this game WAY too seriously!

And what ever happened to good sportsmanship? Would a simple "Good job, guys!" be so difficult?

SF and LA do not go together! I would stick to GS Warriors!

BEAT LA!
