Mayor Ed Lee has officially declared it San Francisco Giants Pride Week, which means starting today he wants this city to be all orange-and-black all the time -- or at least until the end of the World Series.

The mayor doled out a few ideas for Giants fans to show they're excited to kick Detroit's ass, but nothing that your grandmother wouldn't do -- wave a flag, don a T-shirt, drink a beer. But that's just not going to cut it, if you ask us. We want to see your Giants edge, we want to see your Brian Wilson cuckoo.

So here's some of our ideas of how you can prove to the rest of San Francisco that you are, indeed, a devoted Giants fan.

  • Men, slip into a spandex penguin tux, snap a photo, then make it your OkCupid profile picture

  • Get drunk and spend your entire paycheck on Giants crap for you and your dog

  • Buy a UAW worker an Anchor Steam

  • Teach your dog how to say "Go Giants" and then put it up on YouTube

  • Spray paint your neighbor's house orange and black

  • Pin It

  • Arcade Fire at Shoreline
    Arcade Fire opened their US tour at Shoreline Amphitheater to a full house who was there in support of their album "Reflector," which was released last fall. Dan Deacon opened the show to a happily surprised early audience and got the crowd actively dancing and warmed up. DEVO was originally on the bill to support Arcade Fire but a kayak accident last week had sidelined lead singer Mark Mothersbaugh and the duration of the west coast leg of the tour. Win Butler did a homage to DEVO by performing Uncontrollable Urge.
  • Comic Con 2014

    Comic book enthusiasts, Cosplayers, TV and movie fans, and celebrities descended to sunny San Diego for the annual gathering at Comic-Con International.

    Whether hitting up a panel to check out The Simpson's announcement of a cross over with Family Guy or Futurama. Or hearing a new movie with Sam Raimie based on a video game or accidentally rubbing shoulders with Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) in cosplay, being a cosplayer, San Diego Comic-Con is the place to be.
