Today was a special day in San Francisco. It was a day for the entire city to come together and celebrate with our hometown team: the World Champion Giants. The Giants ticker-tape parade marched through downtown San Francisco and I was lucky enough to have a front row seat for the show. It was an incredible sight to behold as 100,000+ plus people lined Market Street to cheer on the team. All I had to do was put on my Giants hat and I instantly had 100,000 new friends.

Some highlights of the parade included seeing the “Say Hey Kid” Willie Mays, Bruce Bochy with the World Series trophy, and San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom. I actually made eye contact with the mayor and gave him a thumbs up that even he would be proud of.

Of course the grand finale of the parade included the entire team. From my vantage point above Market Street I saw all familiar Giants faces: Cody Ross, Matt Cain, Buster Posey, Brian Wilson. I also saw the faces of all the Giants no one knows, whose names I’ve already forgotten but cheered for anyways!
