Giants Fever Sweeps Over Civic Center – A Huge Crowd Already This Morning – All the Good Vantage Points are Gone

Wednesday, November 3rd, 2010

Well it’s still early but there’s already pandemonium on the streets of San Francisco over the Giants winning the World Series 4-1.

As you can see, spectators are already lined up, camped out. The parade and celebration will soon begin.

And Placido Domingo, the greatest opera singer in modern times, is in the house.

Our SFMOMA has an idea about the ideal viewing spot, but I don’t think anyone will be allowed up there but police snipers, prob:

“Clark” and “Lincecum” just came by BART:

If you have to watch over the office while your colleagues join the madding crowd, feel free to take in the action on UStream.

In the meantime, just crank up the Giants-themed smooth reggae from Michael Franti and Spearhead.

Congratulations, GIANTS!

¡Enhorabuena, GIGANTES!
