Hundreds of Giants fans lined up past Juan Marichal, over the Lefty O'Doul Bridge, and snaked close to "Weed Rock" to be the first to pick up a World Series Championship T-Shirt.
When it comes to Giants paraphernalia, this city's fans have demonstrated that, if you hawk it, they will come. The cultural relevance of a black fake beard is mayfly brief. But, hey, you paid for it.
Come what may, however, the Giants are World Champions. That'll be the case forever and a day. But these people wanted their T-shirts. Today.
