Giants to Update Stadium Championship List 'Any Day Now'

When your humble narrator first began attending baseball games at Candlestick Park, the sign outside the stadium told you everything you needed to know about the San Francisco Giants' place in this city.

After you stopped off at Piccolo Pete's, walked under the fetid overpass, climbed through the two parking lots, and reached the stadium, you were greeted with a large sign by the stadium parking lot: "WELCOME TO CANDLESTICK PARK. HOME OF SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS, SUPER BOWL CHAMPIONS 1981 AND 1985." In a small corner of the sign was the following afterthought: "HOME OF S.F. GIANTS."

Things have changed. SF Weekly has learned that, later this week, the Giants will be adding the 2010 to the list of championship years decorating the exterior of AT&T Park.

So, the photo adorning this article may end up being one of the last ever taken of the team's honor roll sans a San Francisco Giants world title. Here's our (bad) artistic rendering of what we'll all soon be gazing at as we enter the ballpark:

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
