San Francisco Giants to celebrate World Series victory with parade Wednesday

No matter what happens on election day, when Gavin Newsom and Abel Maldonado duke it out for the lieutenant governor’s spot, on Wednesday morning the tall San Francisco mayor with slicked back hair and lofty ambitions will attend at least one victory party -- the one the city’s throwing for the San Francisco Giants.

The team gets a ticker-tape parade to celebrate its first World Series championship since moving west from New York in 1958. The route begins at the intersection of Montgomery and Washington streets in the Financial District, hangs a right at Market Street and ends up at City Hall. It’s the same route team members followed when they arrived in the city, the one they took in 2008 to commemorate 50 years here in Baghdad by the Bay.

Once the team arrives at the Civic Center, two days after beating the Texas Rangers, 3-1, in the final championship game, Newsom will present the boys in black and orange with the key to the city. By then, he should know if he still needs it.
