San Francisco Parade: They Can Get Used to This
Two years prior, it was Aubrey Huff's rally thong that most were enamored with. This season, Huff was nothing more than an afterthought. This year, Marco Scutaro, the beloved trade-deadline acquisition will be very well received by his hometown fans. However, those destined to be well-represented today are Pablo Sandoval, the World Series MVP and Sergio Romo, who already tweeted a picture of himself, E-40 and Baby Bash on the bus to the parade.
Kung Fu Orange and Black Panda hats will be floating along the streets on almost every fans head. Tim Lincecum's season of struggle has already been forgotten due to his completely dominant bullpen duty throughout the Giants run to the championship. Madison Bumgarners two awful starts over the first two series are now overlooked due to his incredibly dominant performance in Game 2 of the World Series.
These Giants make things happen - that's why they have the best fans in the world, because they show up knowing that something great will take place. They embody their team more than any other fan base in baseball because they never lose hope. An 0-2 deficit in the NLDS just meant the Giants would have to win three straight in Cincinnati. Giants and their fans believed it would happen. Down 1-3 in the NLCS? Fans were already prepping for a return to San Francisco in Games 6 and 7 because they know their team.
Fight until the death. Never say die attitude. These fans deserve a parade, as do the players and a terrific manager in Bruce Bochy - who should now go down as a Hall of Famer. He pulled all the right strings all season long and even convinced Lincecum, a two-time Cy Young award winner, to be their long/middle reliever. AND IT WORKED!
