San Francisco Giants fans apparently damage East Village tree during Game 5 celebration

The San Francisco Giants beat the Cincinnati Reds yesterday to advance in the National League playoffs. The Giants became the first NL team to overcome a 2-0 deficit in the division series.

Which brings us to this Urban Etiquette Sign an EVG reader spotted on Second Avenue near 14th Street... near Bay Area-rooting sports bar Finnerty's.


Per the sign:

"This tree destroyed by band wagon S.F. Giants fans celebrating Game 5 at curiously S.F. affiliated bar 'Finnerty's.' Hint: Good marketing, nothing more. Not winning awards for neighbor of the year. Get this tree some Melky Juice stat!"

(Melky Juice? The sign leaver knows his or her baseball...)

And here is the damage the bandwagon fans apparently caused ...



Neighbor here will likely be rooting for the Nationals or Cardinals now.

Tragedy. Only tree on the block. Finnerty's a poseur bar. Was a Yankees bar until they smelled a little money by pulling the Prof Thom's trick of welcoming another city in. Then Giants won the Series. And now you've got band wagon city. Go Cards / Nats!

Apropos of nothing, but Tim Lincecum looks a lot like Mitch Kramer in Dazed and Confused.

That tree sees it's fair share of 2nd avenue bus mirrors as well.

Haven't had too many issues with the bars on this block. Usually more trouble from the people heading uptown from the fratholes a few blocks south.

Bar should fix it as a gesture of good will.

A's fans would have chopped down the tree and dragged it down Second Avenue.

If you are an SF (or OAK) fan living in NYC, please don't destroy our trees. Or if you hate NYC enough to destroy our tress, time to go home...wagons west!

I see the broken limbs have been removed and damaged area sealed. Fair enough.
