The long awaited flag raising of the 2012 World Series Champions flag was this afternoon. I’m sure there will be a video coming out of the whole thing, but until then, you got this. It all started when a tugboat with some SF Fire Department heroes were escorting the flag out to the park.
They then handed it off to some fans who would carry it on to the field
As you’ll see below
Then players and Giants employees walked to meet those fans carrying the flag out in Angel Pagan-land
Bruce Bochy and company greeting some of the fans
The transfer to Matt Cain
Funny note from the Merc’s Bud Geracie
Original plan called for Bochy to raise flag, but it was determined by the time he got up the stairs, it would be a night game. #sfgiants

Climb the stairs, everybody!
Except you guys.
Thumbs up for an awesome raising of that flag by Hunter Pence, our alien overlord.
This image perfectly shows how the Giants are champions, and the Dodgers are in last
I think Boch approves
And, the new wall decorations
A fantastic ceremony where I probably only cried 2,453,988 times.
