I see more orange people.

I walked down to the Civic Center to join the SF Giants World Series Celebration...


As promised - a photo essay of a happy day in The City on the day after the mid-term election.















It was fun to see the crowd and experience the scene, but...

... it was a lot more comfortable watching it at Shanghai Kelly's with a perfect Guinness pour. I had to leave when the TV broadcasters started going on and on about the "long suffering Giants fans" deserving this title. Hey I am happy to celebrate with my adopted city on a great World Series Championship. But, as a Cub fan, nothing grates on my nerves quite like hearing anyone else moaning about a World Series drought.

Haley's comet has come and gone twice since the last time the Cubs won the World Series.

Nuff said.

More pics on parallel universe blogs here and here.

Nice. You lasted longer than I did, which was all of about 30 minutes, before walking to the Bell Tower on upper Polk Street. It was a blast watching it there, since the event in the plaza was more made-for-TV just in terms of sound and sight lines. Glad you enjoyed my neighborhood.

Yeah, your neighborhood is always entertaining. I think this is the third or fourth time time we've both blogged the same Civic Center event. And I walked past you at the Bell Tower to get that beer at Shanghai Kellys. At some point, I expect we will experience a head on blog collision. Hopefully that will not open a rift in the intertube space-time continuum.

Dear mw: Actually, I'd like to play golf with you at Sharp Park sometime. I love that course even though it's hard.
