[UPDATE: Oh yes, the birds, too – I forgot about them.]
Get up to speed right here on tonight’s surprise fireworks show in the Music Concourse for the benefit of the San Francisco Giants and Major League Baseball.
Per the SFGiants:
“If you’re in The City and you hear fireworks in a minute, don’t be alarmed, it’s just the #SFGiants private World Series Gala at GG Park.”
But, uh oh:
“Seeing complaints from people in SF about the Tuesday night Fireworks. Giants better win the World Series for the city after this one!”
“Oh apparently it’s some fireworks show for the Giants over GG park? Effing stupid. I’ve never seen a city so obsessed with a sports team.”*
Here’s the video.
Can you hear the chants of, “Let’s go, Giants?”
And here’s the view from Fell Street:

And here’s the mise en scene with Sutro Tower in the background.
This show was scheduled to end at 10:25 PM but concern over area NIMBYs pushed things up a half-hour or so.
