As a kid growing up in Northern California, I have always been rooting for the San Francisco Giants and 49ers. Although, the 49ers had their shares of glory in the 80’s and 90’s. Yet! The Giants baseball team came close 3 different times since moving out to San Francisco back in 1958. All those years of heart broken, the Giants finally captured that allusive championship trophy. I was lucky enough to witnessed history during the National League chase, what a year. Something about this team made a believer out of me and I’ve been telling all my friends that this team will come through. And they did!!
The Giants beat the Rangers in Texas on Monday night. On Tuesday morning they announced the time for the parade on Wednesday. That afternoon, I walked in my boss office and told him that I’ll be off on Wednesday. As a fan I was just so excited and looking forward to attend the 2010 World Series Champion Parade in downtown San Francisco. Everything in San Francisco is pretty much shut down on last Wednesday due to the parade. It was by far the biggest one event I’ve ever attended during my life time. They projected some where around 1.3 million people are out on the streets that day. I totally confirmed that numbers, there are so many people packed in along the 3.5 miles route of parade. I am glad that I got a chance to be a part of the history, who knows when they will get the chance to claim this victory again. It is been 52 years long coming and talking about bittersweet.
