It’s that time of year again. San Francisco goes seriously deliriously Orange.
It can get very obvious.
It can get very subtle (check out the shoelaces!).
As unbusiness-like as Orange might seem, businesses resort to it.
Orange Season always starts in March. And these guys always start it:
No idea why the whole city has gone so flipping orange over the G-Men this year. Everyone knows that 2015 is an odd-numbered year, which means that the St. Louis Cardinals will win the National League pennant, because the Giants only win the World Series in even-numbered years in what might be the first example in American professional sports of a shared dynasty.
But still the City of San Francisco goes orange and black in support of the team.
If you hail from St. Louis, remember this: while I do not hesitate to congratulate the Cardinals for this year’s pennant, I do not hesitate to remind you that 2016 is our year. But you probably don’t mind. After all, 2017 is your year, too.

PS–I wonder how Austin, Texas or Denver, Colorado or Knoxville, Tennessee look during football season?
