Here we go.  Lets all flashback shall we to a mere 2 years ago when San Francisco Giants won their first ever world series since playing in San Francisco.  It was hard to tell wether people had put up halloween lights or if it was all 100% Giants support.  My guess would be the later!  Anyway, unless one was here in SF when the team came back and had their parade, you just could not know how truly electric this city was.

Until that day, i did not see all of the useful benefits of professional sports teams in general.  I saw it as an avenue of entertainment.  It is.  However, there are few avenue’s of entertainment or anything else for that matter, has ever had the power to unite so many different people to celebrate the same thing city wide.  Any race, any age, any sex, any scene, any looks, any personality any diversity you can think of was blotted out and became no factor.  We ALL celebrated when our awesome and kooky Giants made us so proud.

 

All walls came down.  Homeless people, bankers, hipsters, foreigners, kids of any and all ages, women, men, trans, 10 or 100 were freely talking to each other without hesitation.  No fear, no judgement, no attitude.  Just excitement about the same topic.

 

I have never seen anything else do this so widely.  Gay pride.. awesome of course, but it is still attended more widely by the youth, activists and people who still can get up by 8:00am on a sunday to go dance to house beats. (i used to but this damn thing called old age really sucks!).

 

There was the 75th anniversary of the Golden Gate Bridge which was really cool but not so effecting.

 

20 year anniversary of critical mass!  Now, that was THE SHIT!  But i know that we (on bikes) were not united with all demographics of the city (especially the yuppie stressed out drivers except for those few that just oozed super cool!).  The energy was as electric if on the ride, but i know how many people out there dont understand it and hate it, so it is not going to win for bringing the city together by one event.

 

I suppose the only real contender would have to be after the 89 quake.  But if fear is added to the equation, it takes a little bit of the joy out, but the giving helpfulness of all during that event was incredible and everyone could feel it.  Like a smooth working society without (for a second) the hands of government and laws policing you and the society ideals that make people behave just so as to not look un-couth!  It was just neighbor helping neighbor and it was efficient.  We all took a lot of silent pride in that cooperation that we envolved ourselves in.  It was amazing!

 

So, back, remembering 2012 and its electric city filled with pride and super festive atmosphere that the Giants lit on fire under this town are getting me really excited again.  To think that that elation that lingers for a couple of days after could befall upon us once again this year…. I WANT IT!!   I would not be too pressed to say that i think WE ALL DO!!

 

GO SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS ALL THE WAY TO 2012 WORLD SERIES CHAMPS!!
