Now that the Giants have won the World Series, Will Bay Area voters come out of their self-induced marijuana and opium high in time to vote today? If you remember, a few days ago Candlestick Park was engulfed in a haze of pot smoke, to the point that even Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton, a recovering drug abuser, complained about the aroma.

If the hippies in California stay home, that can only help
Isn’t the Giant’s stadium one of the very few major sports venues that was not built with taxpayer money? If so, I’m glad they won.
I pray that all the SF Giant fans stay home from voting today. Congratulations on your win. Now celebrate in drunkenness at home.
Hmmmm..good point, I never thought of that. I hope it does...and that the sane (if there’s any left) folks, show up at the polls today.
Liberals, in general don't care about sports. So I figure a good number of Giant fans are probably more conservative.
Uhm... That’s AT&T Park. Giants haven’t played at Candlestick for many years.
I can tell you that people on twitter are 100% for prop 19. And that’s 100%. I just read prop19 on twitter, hit more 5 times, read maybe 200 or so posts. Every single person on twitter is Yes on Prop 19. No person tweeted anything about any candidate, in a search for prop19.
Not sure exactly if that means anything.
Sorry, I don’t follow the Giants, and I guess I’m dating myself.
It means potheads like Twitter.
I doubt that there would be much affect in the western states.
As someone stated above, liberals usually don't care anything about sports. But aside from that, our only hope here in the Bay area is that San Franciscans will be too demoralized over the projected GOP sweep to go out and vote to keep Pelosi in office - but I wouldn't count on it.
“I guess I’m dating myself”
That’s ok. Here’s a woman who married herself!
Correct, but Liberals enjoy rioting and partying. Which is going on right now.
Is San Francisco? Maybe Bela Pelosi’s voters will be too drunk to remember where the polls are.
