Haight Street Near Fillmore Street, 29 October 2014, 9:11 – 9:42 p.m.

Standard

Good Evening:

The San Francisco Giants won their third consecutive even-number World Series tonight (2010, 2012, 2014), and the city has not celebrated yet. The scenes at 22nd & Mission, 4th & Market, and near the Giants ballpark have gotten a little exciting, both good and bad exciting, but the intersection of Haight and Fillmore once again managed to walk the fine line between raucous and calm. The police stood around, taking pictures not for evidence but for their collections, and didn’t even do anything when someone set off professional grade fireworks twenty feet away from one of their cars.

Some pictures of the fun and baseball games.

For those of you living elsewhere I hope these give you a sense of the scene and the crowd tonight. After the street party, I did the same thing any other San Francisco Giants fan did: bought a role of paper towels. Because we’re a wild and crazy bunch here in San Francisco.
