The Giants bring the Trophy to San Francisco (photos)

If you’ve been reading my Twitter updates, you know there was a moment early this morning that I felt like I would not be heading to San Francisco to witness the first Giants World Series Championship parade.

But even on minimal sleep, my brother-in-law and I made the trip and let me tell you, it was awesome.

The day started with an hourlong train ride and continued with a stroll around AT&T Park in San Francisco’s China Basin. After taking some pictures along the waterfront of McCovey Cove, we found ourselves near the Player’s entrance where … players were arriving for the parade. We saw World Series MVP Edgar Renteria, Matt Cain, Tim Lincecum and Hall of Famer Willie Mays all arrive in personal vehicles.

Along the parade route, things were nuts. An estimated 1 million people jammed the city. People were watching from windows and rooftops, from trees and even on top of buses.

And some people called in sick …

.. to see the Giants. The World Champion San Francisco Giants.

Here are a few images from the parade.

And pretty much every player on the roster. Although not all of them were facing us.

Barry Zito. That sign sums up his role in the postseason.

Andres Torres ... who was too suave for the float.
