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.

  • U2 @ SAP Center in San Jose
    Last night U2 performed the first U.S. date of it’s Innocence + Experience tour at SAP Center in San Jose. All four band members were present despite recent injuries sustained by both Bono and Edge. The sold out show took audience members on a walk down memory lane as the band revisited their roots. The innovative stage and lighting used gave the arena show an intimate feel, and engaged audience members in all sections of the venue. Photographs by Sugarwolf.
  • Bay to Breakers 2015 - NSFW
    The 103rd annual Bay to Breakers 12K race was packed on Sunday despite the cold weather. With a starting point a few blocks from The Embarcadero, people dressed as bananas, Elvis and everything in between ran west through the city and finished at the Great Highway where breakers crash onto Ocean Beach.
