With high hopes of the Giants winning the World Series for the third even-numbered year in five years and a roller coaster of a season, fans in the Mission are remembering what happened the last time the neighborhood celebrated a victory like this.
Despite the SFPD’s precautionary measures to prevent Giants madness (including taking away trash cans), neighbors are predicting that, you guessed it, things are gonna get crazy if they win.
While this video was recorded on Wednesday (before the Giants lost two games), we think Missionites are still feeling optimistic about a win—and bearing down for what that may mean in the streets.
Last time the Giants won a partying drunken bunch of kids climbed our MIssion District roof and one fell off. Fortunately, no serious damage to the reveler, but I sure hope people have a little more sense if the team does it again.
Doesn’t look like it tonight. They might just start tearing stuff up out of frustration
Joy, happiness, loud yelling, cheering, low-riding, dumping berr all over yourself and others…this is all good.
Lighting stuff on fire? Is not. Last year, someone lit a tree on fire on 22nd street. The tree lit up as trees will, right on the sidewalk, right under a bay window.
We’re packed like sardines in wooden cans in this neighborhood, and it really really wouldn’t take much for several blocks to go up.
No fire. More joy. That’s my hope.
