16th, Valencia Turns Into High-Five Alley

Almost immediately after the Giants won the Series, I took off toward 16th and Valencia to see what was up back in my neighborhood.  Turned out to be pretty joyous at first: crowds storming 16th and Albion, high-fiving cars, Munis and even firefighters.  Sadly, SFPD took it upon themselves to repeatedly drive through the crowd and demand that everyone return to the sidewalk, which obviously only pissed everyone off.

However, at some point, SFPD recognized the futilities in trying to contain a mob of Giants fan was an incredibly stupid waste of time and took off.  Eventually another crowd gathered in front of Casanova and some drunk kid with dreadlocks dropped the fire escape so everyone could climb up to the roof.
