Does the joy in San Francisco today remind you of Red Sox Nation in 2004? Check out the San Francisco Chronicle and note these reactions:
It took the Giants 19,193 days to bring a World Series championship to San Francisco, five decades of pent-up hope passed through generations that erupted in horn-honking, stranger-kissing, heart-pumping delirium Monday night.
There were tears of joy and surprise as fathers hugged sons and mothers whispered in children’s ears that they would never, never forget this day.
Strangers high-fived in Civic Center Plaza, where thousands huddled together in the orange glow of City Hall to cheer every swing of a Giants bat and each one of Texas’ 27 outs.
