    Here are some pictures from when the (nee) NEW YORK GIANTS baseball team brought their second World Series Trophy in 3 years back to Manhattan. Once a New Yorker, always a New Yorker. Some people had to wait over 5 hours to get a photo ! Former CEO/Owner Pete McGowan came over and actually thanked my wife and I for coming ! (Also, I think 'the big hurt' Frank Thomas was there, even though I equate him as a Chisox. If it was him, he is one huge dude to say the least.) Buster Posey did not come by while I was there; we were told he was at the Yogi Berra Museum that afternoon

    It was mentioned frequently that day that the Giants had now won as many WS trophies the past 3 seasons as the Mets have won over the past 51 seasons.





    right after this picture, 2 NYPD ran over from their car and took pictures with it. A female officer said she was a NYY fan but never saw the trophy; the other cop said he was a Met fan and will never see the trophy period.


    They let me try a WS ring. It was actually a 2010 model since the GIANTS did not give the 2012 rings out yet.



    This was before the WS trophy was set up for picture taking. My wife and I were allowed to hold it and raise it up, but we were caught by surprise and did not have the camera ready, so we had to settle for this:



    wish we had turned a bit so the "NY's" on the jackets would have shown up. There were a lot of NY Giants jackets and hats mixed with SF.
