Giants... 2010 World Champs.

TL is a big sports guy.  He loves 'em all - especially football and baseball!  As the Giants approached the Post Season this year, he started going to more games... and started chaining me along with the spirit of the orange & black :)  It was such a wonderful few weeks watching them win and make it all the way through to the World Series.  We had plans to attend games 6 or 7 if they came back to SF, but they ended up winning in Texas.  So, we headed over to SF for the victory parade... wow!  It was packed full of people, spirit, and excitement.  Definitely a once in a lifetime experience.

I've been to my fair share of SF parades and festivals... but never have I seen the streets so crowded with people.  It was estimated one MILLION people came out for the parade.  Incredible.  I'm not usually a huge fan of being packed like a sardine in a group of people, but this was an exception.  During the parade, TL lifted me up so I could see the players ride by on their trolly cars.  It was SO cool :)  

Thousands of pounds of confetti was thrown off the top of the buildings... it littered the streets like a snow storm!
It was a sea of orange & black!  This is 2 hours before the parade even started.
I love this guy... we had so much fun together! 
Even the SFPD horses had Giants hats on... this is a side picture!  (So cute)
It was SO loud... it gave me goosebumps.  (Turn down your volume)

These pictures don't do it justice... there were hundreds of people lined up behind us.  It was nuts!

The parade really renewed my spirit for the city.  It was really cool to experience with TL and something we will never forget! :)

Yay that's exciting you could share that together. When the Phillies won a few years ago, my family in the people in our area just went crazy!
