Go San Francisco, Go Barranquilla, Go Giants!

On Monday, the San Francisco Giants baseball team made history when they won their first World Series since moving to San Francisco in 1958. While the win took place at an away game against the Texas Ranges, our city instantly erupted into celebrations which continued through Wednesday when the team was welcome home to an amazing ticker tape parade.

MY TAKE: Here in San Francisco, it was an amazing week. Enhancing the moment was the ability to share it with our family and friends in Barranquilla Colombia where celebrations also occurred (this coastal city is the hometown of Edgar Renteria, the Giants Most Valuable Player for the series - his 3-run home run locked up the championship for the team). In addition, a World Series win is generally quite good for the local economy. Yahoo!
