SAN FRANCISCO, California (The Adobo Chronicles) – Thousands of Giants fans are expected to descend upon Super Bowl City in San Francisco this Saturday to protest what they are calling a city-sponsored event that discriminates against baseball fans.

Although Super Bowl 50 between the Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers will actually be held at Levi’s Stadium in the city of Santa Clara, San Francisco has organized a week-long event in the  Embarcadero featuring concerts, fireworks, vendor displays, street dancing, food and booze, and viewing of the championship game live via jumbo screens.

“We have never seen anything like this before,” the protesters said.  “The 49ers are not even in the game so why is the city of San Francisco making such a big deal out of Super Bowl 50 ?”

The Giants fans feel insulted that San Francisco has not done a similar event for their baseball team in the past (when the Giants were not in the World Series).

They plan to chain themselves to BART and Muni trains and block mass transportation to and from Embarcadero.

The San Francisco Police Department is advising  football fans to refrain from wearing  49er or any other NFL team t-shirts or paraphernalia for their own safety and to prevent any untoward confrontation.

The San Francisco Giants beat the Kansas City Royals in Game 7 Wednesday night to clinch its third World Series title in five years.

The announcement came after Lee received a call from from Kansas City Mayor Sly James that the entire San Francisco team has been quarantined for 21 days and barred from flying.

The state of Kansas has declared a new viral outbreak that’s highly contagious, more so than Ebola. The outbreak seemed to have started during Game 6 of the World Series. Tens of thousands of baseball fans, many of whom came in direct contact with the Giants, exhibited severe symptoms of euphoria, nervous breakdown, intoxication, inflammation of the vocal cords and hypertension — all of which were traced back to Game 6. By Game 7, the new contagion tripled, causing the state of Kansas to declare a health emergency. A new symptom — depression — developed overnight but strangely enough, only the Royals fans are exhibiting it.

Upon consultation with the Feds, notably the Centers for Disease Control, Kansas imposed a mandatory 21-day quarantine on all who attended Games 6 and 7 of the Word Series at the Kauffman stadium. Unfortunately, that includes the Giants team.

Mayor Lee asked for calm in San Francisco and promised that the victory parade will be rescheduled immediately after the Giants are released from quarantine.

Madison Bumgarner, who is widely credited for his role in clinching the World Series title for the Giants, tweeted from Kansas: ‘Bummer!’



Kansas City, Kansas (The Adobo Chronicles) – The Giants and Royals head back to Kansas City on Tuesday for Game 6 of the World Series which now stands at 3-2 in favor of the Giants.

Yesterday’s Giants victory at AT&T Park was bittersweet for the San Francisco team after that embarrassing botched rendition of the national anthem by rock artist now country singer Aaron Lewis.

The Royals don’t want to undergo the same embarrassment, so they decided to bring in pop star Justin Bieber to sing the Star-spangled banner.

A spokesperson for the Royals told reporters that even if Bieber messes up with his lyrics, it wouldn’t be such a big deal since he is Canadian.

A clever move by the Royals.
