giants1San Francisco, Nov 4, (THAINDIAN NEWS) It seems all the die-hard San Francisco Giants descended on downtown San Francisco on Wednesday as the city geared up to welcome its heroes after their scintillating victory against the Texas Rangers in the World Series 2010 earlier this week. The victory parade which lasted for about 90 minutes witnessed all the imminent players of the team who had played a major role in ensuring their team’s victory ride across the city in motorized cable cars as thousands of enthusiastic supporters thronged the roads to catch a glimpse of their favorite stars.

Although city officials refused to divulge the exact crowd size, it was surely one of the biggest gatherings that San Francisco has witnessed in a long time. As the players cruised from the Financial District to City Hall, hundreds of thousands of onlookers cheered boisterously and packed the victory parade route converting it into a sea of people. Downtown San Francisco resembled a carnival as the entire parade route was beautifully decorated with confetti raining from the skyscrapers as the crowds gave a thundering applause to celebrate their home team’s stunning World Series victory. Some of the fans adorned beards to express their adoration for star reliever Brian Wilson while some wore long-haired wigs to honor Tim Lincecum.

After the much-anticipated World Series victory parade reached its conclusion at the Civic Center on Wednesday afternoon, San Francisco Giants general manager Brian Sabean told reporters that his knees were going weak. He added that his heart was racing and he had a lump in his throat at the spectacular reception that the fans of the team had given them.
