Let’s Go Giants!
The opening game of the World Series is underway! Huge crowds of fans have been streaming into the neighborhood all day to cheer on the San Francisco Giants. As our office is only a block away from the ballpark, we are right in the thick of it, so it was crucial to outfit our storefront accordingly this morning.

Now, as our online community manager, I spend a lot of time on Facebook and Twitter. I was so inspired by the awesome Giants-themed logos created by SFMOMA and the Exploratorium that I decided to take ours to a whole new level for the World Series. Three words: FEAR THE BEARD!
For all the hardcore baseball nuts out there (and truly old-school Giants fans), I thought I’d leave you with a little World Series trivia from Obsessed with Baseball:
