    Congratulations San Francisco - World Series Champions!
    Okay, this Texas boy is a bit disappointed, but I must admit that San Francisco certainly deserved this win.

    Congrats San Francisco! Awesome job! Wow!

    I was pulling for San Francisco, but had my doubts. I am now a believer. Before the series started, I thought the Rangers were gonna win it in 6 or 7. But, the Giants' bats were on fire and they had the pitching to match it for most of the series.

    As the Pet Shop Boys say... Go West... Congrats SF Giants! Well done!

    As a diehard Dodger fan since they came to LA in 1958, it is extremely painful to say, but Congrats to the Giants. Their dominating young pitching staff and timely hitting (especially from former Dodger and late-season pickup Cody Ross) were no match for the Rangers, who clearly were the best in the American League. This seems like a shift in the balance of power back to the National League, where it rightfully belongs.

    Congrats to San Francisco. Never thought they were a real competitor until game 3 in the NLCS. San Francisco has had many superior teams since I have been a fan, but this team seemed like they were on a mission. Just think of how much better they would have been if they would have bought some good players for the money they gave Zito and Rowand.

    The best part was watching the parade from my 22nd floor office window. I've never been at the top of a ticker tape parade before.

    I missed the parade as I no longer live in San Francisco. I am sure the excitement in the city was awesome. I have been a Giants fan my whole life and am still in shock that they found a way to win in such a dominant fashion. I wish I could have been there to see the celebration.

    Hey Chris,

    Sorry you missed it. It was pretty exciting. I come to work by BART and there was over 1000 people in line to get on BART that morning . . . in the Pleasanton station no less. Got here and could barely get to my office. (We are right downtown.) They say we have such a young pitching rotation that we could repeat.

    Where are you now? Come back for a game.

    Hey Glenn, I am in Denver now. I went to all Giants/Rockies games here in Denver during the season. That last series in late September was great. I also flew back to SF for game 4 against Philadelphia. That was one of the best games I have ever seen.

    I imagine the people who were not Giants fans where pretty POed about those huge Bart lines

    Ironically, I'm a Red Sox fan, but with them not having the best year, got to cheer for my home team. I'll only have to worry if the two teams play each other in the World Series and that's not expected to happen until the year 3034.

    Don't know why you would say that - an incredible load of injuries decimated the Red Sox this season, and they are still the most talented team in the AL - with their great pitching and a little luck on the injury front, they could well get back to the WS next season. The Giants, with, as you say, their great young pitching staff, and a key pick-up here and there, will be in the running for the WS again next season.

    Now my dreams series - Dodgers and Angels - that is another story (3034 - maybe)
