Remember Mission Street after the Giants won the World Series in 2010?

How about 2012?

And, after the 2014 Pennant Win.

Well, this anonymous six-year-old is pleading you not to destroy the neighborhood, okay? Okay.

  1. i hope popeyes gets destroyed personally. Jack Spade, Soda, landlords, and developers are all not as bad as that shithole

  2. Whether that’s performance art or from a for real six-year-old. I wholeheartedly agree with the sentiment!

  3. This is so obviously staged by some adult, I mean sure, what happened in 2010 shouldn’t be allowed to happen again but “anonymous 6 year old” uhh humm!! I mean clever adult looking for a viral news story sounds more like it.

  4. “Undoubtedly, he – or his parents – remembered what happened after the Giants won the world series in 2010 and 2012.”

    Since ‘Joey’ was 2 and 4 at the time, it’s a fair bet this note posted at Popeye’s had absolutely nothing to do with Joey and everything to do with his parents. Not that it’s a bad message — just that I’m oh so tired of cliched ‘sweet innocent children’ making statements that clearly come from the mouths of adults.
