Giants Fans to Fly Banner Over Dodgers Stadium
|Not the world champions|
The group -- called the Faithful Supporters of the World Champion San Francisco Giants -- is tapping all fans to help raise money to fly a banner three miles above the Chavez Ravine stadium where the Dodgers play. The banner will read "Giants 2010 Champs: Beat LA," and fly over the stadium for the Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday games for an hour and 20 minutes.
"It is a great way to pay tribute to the World Champion San Francisco Giants while giving the other organization a taste of what it's like to be World Champions: something they haven't tasted since 1988," the group says on its Web site.
The group is asking for pledges to help pay for the team-spirited banner -- and members are already 52 percent toward their goal of $8,000.
"In this hostile environment, The World Champion San Francisco Giants will need the support of the World Champion San Francisco Giants Faithful," the Web site says.
SF Weekly's sister paper in Los Angeles is taking it hard. LA Weekly confirmed that the Dodgers stadium is a hostile environment, saying "damn right, wussies."
