Orange October has officially come to a close, but not first without a special World Series Parade down San Francisco’s Market Street.
The San Francisco Giants celebrated the franchise’s seventh World Championship win in style. They also invited two well-known 49ers to participate in the activities. Jim Harbaugh drove first basemen Brandon Belt’s parade car and Alex Smith chauffeured All-Star pitcher Matt Cain through the parade.
Harbaugh spoke to CSN Bay Area while sitting in the front seat of a red convertible. Cam Inman of the San Jose Mercury News shared the comments from the 49ers coach.
“It’s very inspiring, no question about it, just how they stayed together as a team and how well they played together,” Harbaugh told CSN Bay Area’s Jaymee Sire. “But we have a lot of work to do. It is a great example and we’ll try to follow it.”
SI.com’s Don Banks thinks the 49ers could have a parade in their future. He ranks San Francisco No. 4 in his latest power rankings with this team assessment: “What was that noise about Alex Smith’s starting job being up for discussion and debate in San Francisco? Perhaps not. Smith was a ridiculous 18 of 19 for 232 yards and three touchdowns in that dissection of the Cardinals Monday night, and he even got Randy Moss involved in the scoring with a 47-yard third-quarter touchdown catch. Pretty good week for the 49ers to take their bye, too, because now they can take in the Giants’ World Series victory parade and see how it might be done next February.”
CSNBayArea.com also looked at the chances of another parade taking place in early 2013.
Inman also shares the NFL’s final ruling on the team’s appeal of a short pass to Michael Crabtree initially ruled as a run.
