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.

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.
