Vinh & I in front of the ring ceremony
Vinh & I arrived into San Francisco around 2:30ish & found parking for $20. We walked 2 blocks towards AT&T Park to find that there was a huge line already. I had Vinh stand in line while I went into the Dugout store to buy the new black jersey for myself. I got it customized to Lincecum #55 for $15 extra & it was done in 30 minutes, not bad :P
Long line to the entrance...
Hunter Pence, yes yes yes!
Willie Mays Gate
We finally got through the front gates 30 minutes after they opened. Longest wait in line ever for AT&T Park! I was most ecstatic to get my 2014 World Series replica ring! It was the first real World Series that I fully watched so I wanted something to encapsulate all the anticipation & excitement that went along with our Orange October experience.
Let's open the replica ring box!
Pretty nice for a replica, huh?

It was a gorgeous day out for a Ring Ceremony for our guys. I loved that Tiffany & Co. were the ones that made the real rings. You can watch the whole Ring Ceremony here. It was definitely pretty flashy with the parachute guys delivering the first two rings! Golden stars were carried out & each one represented a year we wont the World Series. There was also fireworks & streamers a'plenty at the end :)

The Giants ended their 8-game losing streak after receiving their rings. We won 4-1 against the Diamondbacks with Heston pitching one heck of a game! I'm so glad we got to witness the Ring Ceremony & a win all at once. Definitely a night to remember :)

Have you ever attended a Ring Ceremony for your favorite team? If so, wasn't it awesome?! If not, would you attend if your team won the championship? :)
