Alyssa Nelson: In stitches over her Giants:
My name is Alyssa and I attended the Giants World Series Parade on Wednesday. Not anticipating the over one million people there, I couldn’t even get close to see my favorite players (or even hear them speak) in the parade or on the steps of City Hall. While trying to see the screen from what seemed like a mile away, some drunk threw a champagne bottle into the air and my chances of being hit (one in a million) came to life. I took a champagne bottle straight to the face and covered my face with my hands thinking my nose was broken. I realize I am bleeding and I assume it’s a nosebleed until my friend tells me I am gushing blood from my head. I was handed napkins and I make my way through the crowd saying “excuse me, I’m bleeding.” After I am told that I need stitches, I make my way back to the train to go home and the thing breaks down making it two an a half hours from SF to Santa Clara. Three stitches and a good story later, I now will have a replica of Harry Potter’s scar. Me and my family have been Giants fans for generations and I am so glad to have been a part of history. GO GIANTS!!!!

I got to San Francisco at 7 am and it was already packed. I luckily found a great spot at the very end of the parade on McAllister, here are some of the shots I was able to get. The crowds were worth it, it was an incredible day. Go Giants!
Tiffany Altamirano: Early Christmas gifts
My father and I are big Giants fans, he has been taking me to games since I was 5 years old. I (Tiffany Altamirano) am now 25 years old, and my father (Filmen Padron) is 56, every year the Giants would play we would always tell each other “we will get them next year”. It’s a such an incredible feeling to be able to not say those words anymore! To be able to experience the joy and excitement with my dad to be apart of the Giants glorious win will stay in my heart forever. My mom (Annie Padron) bought my father and I World Series tickets to Game 2 in San Francisco which were also our Christmas Gifts. My father and I enjoyed together the best day of our lives together. Than when the Giants won the World Series there was no doubt in our minds we where going to the parade to celebrate. My father, my husband (Jonathan Altamirano), our daughter (Lilah Altamirano, 2yrs.), and a good family friend (Steve Bailey) headed to San Francisco on Wednesday morning. We left Gilroy at 4:00am to be at the Civic Center by 6:45am, call us crazy but the whole day was worth being sleep deprived, because to see the happiness from my dad that day, is priceless. I am blessed and pray my dad and I will at least be able to experience at least one more World Series again.
