Big League Stew - MLB

SAN FRANCISCO — Giants fans may have been put out when Phillies fans got personal with Tim Lincecum(notes) in the NLCS, but this bar on my walk to AT&T Park today proved that some San Franciscans aren't above going below the belt with an October opponent. Why didn't they just offer him a free ride to the Tenderloin while they were at it? 

Below, find a few more pics as San Francisco got ready to host its first World Series game since 2002. Luckily all of 'em are a lot more clever than taking aim at a guy who's battling an addiction.

This guy gets an A+ for best repurposing of last year's Halloween costume.

That you, La Bamba?

The battle between Texas and California isn't only happening on the field.

Actual exchange between me and this guy:

Me: "Hey, isn't wearing a pumpkin on your head really uncomfortable?"

Guy (after removing pumpkin and looking me in the eye): "Not as uncomfortable as living on the streets, man."

Me: "Oh." (awkwardly searches pockets for change)

McCovey Cove was packed hours before the game with big boats ...

... and little boats.

After this picture was taken, I narrowly escaped being the victim of a vicious banjo attack.
