The post-season was thrilling from beginning to end. The team faced down do-or-die, win-or-go-home scenarios five times, then proved that they deserved to be in the World Series by sweeping the Detroit Tigers.
Now Giants fans have a chance to show the team our appreciation for taking us all to the pinnacle.

The parade will start at 11 a.m. at the foot of Market Street, proceed all the way to McAllister Street where it will turn right, the end at City Hall and Civic Center Plaza.
San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee plans to present the Giants with a key to the city and honor them in a celebration featuring speeches from players, coaches and dignitaries.
The mayor said the city is "ready for a great, great celebration" that will be "a family-friendly event," a stark contrast to raucous celebrations after Sunday's series-clinching win that led to 36 arrests and destruction around the city.
He said Wednesday's revelry will be "a day to relax, reflect and just celebrate our heroes."
Market and Mission streets will be closed to drivers between Justin Herman Plaza and Van Ness Avenue from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. for parade and construction-related activities.
