Blog Photo - San Francisco fans outraged as AT&T Park used for Kimye proposalSan Franciscans thought it was awful when their defending world champion Giants fell 16 games out of first and next-to-last in the NL West in 2013. But that was nothing. Now Giants fans must process the humiliating development that their beloved hometown AT&T Park has been used as the site of Kanye West's marriage proposal to Kim Kardashian, and this loveless spectacle will probably be broadcast repeatedly on the E! channel.

Giants fans are not taking it well. And by "not taking it well", I mean "making cruel, juvenile and hilarious jokes about the size of Ms. Kardashian's rear end and generally questioning Mr. West' s sexual orientation".

E! Online broke the exclusive news that Kanye West used AT&T Park to propose to Kim Kardashian, presumably because E! broadcasts a television show about these two. Kanye is in San Francisco because he is performing a concert in San Jose tomorrow night, and it was Kim's 33rd birthday. Lurid details are provided by the San Francisco Chronicle's Leah Garchik, if you can stomach them.

Giants fans are understandably up in arms at the all-things-San-Francisco blog SFist. "The biggest loss of the year for AT&T Park," fumes one commenter.

"This stadium is unclean," complains another. "We've seen the last Giants World Series for decades. Curse of the Bimbino."

"Time to move to Portland," cracks an angry San Franciscan at Valleywag.

Ima let you guys finish but Twitter had the funniest and meanest Kanye proposal jokes of all time. Of all time!

Comedy Central tweeted, "'If anyone has any reason Kim & Kanye should not be married, speak now or forever hold your peace.' -Taylor Swift's moment of revenge."

MLB Jesus tweeted, "For defiling AT&T Park, let Kim get another Yeezt infection."

Darth Vader tweeted, "After Kanye proposed to Kim, he said 'We want pre-nup, we want pre-nup.'"

Good to see that Lord Vader is getting the hang of this Twitter thing!

"Congrats to Kim and Kanye," tweets Kirker Butler, "Finally, the two biggest asses in show business will merge into one."

San Francisco Giants fans will regrettably have to live with the ignominy of Kanye and Kim's wedding proposal, and Monday night's proposal will live in infamy for them. Or at least, it will live in infamy until three months from now, when the two of them inevitably get divorced.
