A Giant Banner - "Beat LA" @ Opening Day


Not trying to avoid this story. It's just something that doesn't really bug me. I don't even think it's news worthy but I keep getting e-mails about it. Especially from Giants fans. (Yeah they love this blog)

From Mark -

Hey Roberto, you're scared or what? Just post our big plans already. Giants taking over! Opening Day here we come!

Whatever.

Mark is talking about Giants fans planning a flyover at Dodger Stadium on Opening Day. A giant banner will fly over Chavez Ravine that will say "Giants 2010 Champs: BEAT LA."

How much does this cost? $8,000 bucks. They have about 55%. I'm sure they will reach the rest by March 31.

From their site - F*ck Yeah! SHUT UP! {linked here}

Two years ago one man came up with an idea. He waited for the perfect time to enact this diabolical, yet beautiful concept. One concept, one idea, that would shock the sports world while leaving Southern California feeling empty inside. Now is the time.

As most of you die hard fans know, The World Champion San Francisco Giants open up Major League Baseball play at Chavez Ravine in Los Angeles. In this hostile environment The World Champion San Francisco Giants will need the support of The World Champion San Francisco Giant's Faithful. The plan is to fly a banner 3 miles above Chavez Ravine that says, "Giants 2010 Champs: BEAT LA". This banner will fly in Los Angeles for the Thursday, Saturday and Sunday games for an hour and 20 minutes. It is a great way to pay tribute to The World Champion San Francisco Giants while giving the other organization a taste of what it is like to be World Series Champions: something they haven't tasted since 1988. So, we ask the faithful of The World Series San Francisco Giants to pledge whatever you can to make this idea, this dream, a reality.

Signed,

Faithful Supporters of The World Champion San Francisco Giants

Nice. I know most Dodger fans are offended. I've been reading their reaction on Twitter. Pretty funny. Who cares though? It doesn't bother me.
