It's been four months and 29 days since millions of Giants fans and players paraded through the Orange and Black-decked arteries of San Francisco, dangling red thongs, airing Prop 19-related grievances, spraying champagne, and raging in ways few bearded men have raged.

Yet we're still fairly new at this gloating thing, evidenced by a group of Giants fans -- calling themselves F*ck Yeah! SHUT UP! -- who plan to fly a plane over Dodger Stadium today with a banner that reads: "Giants 2010 Champs: BEAT LA."

This could go down as one of the boldest gloats in sports history, but it could still be better. Here are a few other ideas for the banner that could work -- or instigate a civil war in California.

Dodger fans: you're not #Winning

Aren't California divorce laws a bitch? (Or: Jamie McCourt never loved the Dodgers)

Kempwood just doesn't have the same ring as Mannywood

It doesn't work when you all wear thongs

I can see the smog of Orange County from up here

This plane will leave in the 6th inning with Dodger fans

Tommy Lasorda is turning in his grave... Wait, he's not dead yet?

In-N-Out's stock is plummeting now that Panda's on a diet

Pat Burrell has slept with more women than Mickey Rourke

Timmy said NorCal has better weed than you do, and he would know

Zito would be your opening day starter -- and bat 8th

While this might be admittedly a little cruel, remember: they'd do the same to us in a heartbeat. The San Fransisco Giants take on the Los Angeles Dodgers tonight at 5 p.m.

  • 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.'"
