SAN FRANCISCO – The first hint of hooch wafted through the air immediately after Edgar Renteria went yard. Within moments after Brian Wilson struck out for the final out of the World Series, a man in a yellow windbreaker took out a brick of the stuff and lit it on fire, waving it in the air from the unlit end so ``Everyone can feel the love.’’
It wasn’t exactly Haight-Ashbury – too many black and orange hats and too many orange t-shirts – but the scene around 7:30 in front of City Hall last night – where thousands had congregated to watch the Giants win the World Series on a big screen television -- was distinctly San Francisco.
Cars and skateboards flying down Market Street, the former blasting horns. Fans lining up on both sides as if it was a parade, screaming, screaming, screaming.
