The Best Giants Riot Video So Far

My budding filmmaker buddy Nico spliced together all the great high def footage he took of the craziness last night and put it over the most appropriate soundtrack imaginable to create the masterpiece shown here.  Although the general consensus seems to be that what occurred in the Mission on Monday night following the Giants’ championship victory was not a riot per se, it’s easy to understand why anyone standing in the vicinity of these shots might be inclined to suggest otherwise.

Take a look and see for yourself to relive the memories over and over again.
