Curtain Call: The Nation's Newspapers

Okay, so it's not really front pages from all over the country, but "The Bay Area's Newspapers" didn't have the same pop.

The barricades are gone, the crowds are dispersed, and pieces of orange-and-black confetti littering Market Street are probably the only tangible signs of Wednesday's parade. And that was that. The parade and speeches capped off this weird, wild season not just for the Giants but for major league baseball. The 2010 season goes into history, and we get a brief breather for the winter before the crescendo of spring training begins.

We've shared some laughs, some tears and more than a few exclamations of "FUCK!" along the way, but you know, I couldn't pick a better group of people with which I'd rather suffer through the torture than the McCoven. Let's take a last look back at this cast of characters called the 2010 San Francisco Giants and that wonderful symbiotic relationship between team and fans.

Another turning point, a fork stuck in the road
Time grabs you by the wrist, directs you where to go


Everybody!

It's something unpredictable, but in the end is right
I hope you had the time of your life


YOU'VE BEEN GREAT! THANK YOU, SAN FRANCISCO! GOOD NIGHT!
