Attendees to the Giants parade included the mayor, Gavin Newsom, one of the senators, Diane Feinstein, and the icon of Giants baseball, Willie Mays. Eventually, Brian Wilson (the beard), Barry Zito, Pablo Sandoval (the panda), Madison Bumgardner, Buster Posey were all on display. They each got their own end of trolley-style bus in which to bask in the glow of being the first Giants to win the World Series in 56 years.
The World series starts in just a half hour, with the San Francisco Giants (!!!!!!!!) taking on the Texas Rangers.
Tim Lincecum is pitching tonight against Cliff Lee, followed by Matt Cain to finish the first 2 games in SF, and Jonathan Sanchez + Madison Bumgarner to lead off games 3 & 4 in Texas.
Ex-Giants catcher Bengie Molina played the majority (barely over half) of this season with the Giants, and is now catching for the Rangers, meaning whichever team wins the World Series he will walk away with a shiny new ring. Lucky him!
