Oh happy day!
At San Francisco's City Hall, one eventually gets used to the sight of statuesque brides in frilly gowns and strappy sandals clomping through the metal detectors. But a fella with a two-foot-tall, traffic cone orange hat, a matching scarf and a gleeful Jack-O-Lantern smile?

No, he's not here to sing at the Board of Supervisors meeting.

The San Francisco Giants World Series trophy was on display today at City Hall, and hundreds of fans crashed the seat of municipal government to get a gander. Here are a few photos of the gathered throngs.

Unlike most San Franciscans, the World Series trophy has its own car. Truck, even. We heard that, emulating Jeff Kent, it broke one of its limbs while washing that truck.

Giants fans are used to waiting...

This is as close as we could get to the trophy before the Sheriff's Deputy threw us out. You can see it in front of the umbrella.
