Phils, Giants Fans Head West
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The National League Championship series shifts to San Francisco for game three. In addition to being a travel day for the players, today is also a travel day for the fans.
Not much rest for the fans of both teams as they head west. Phils fans hope to take some brotherly love out to the Bay Area. Giants fans are looking forward to getting back to their home ballpark.
Todd was among the Giants fans at both games in Philly. Although he was decked out in orange and black, he says fans were mostly cordial… mostly:
“There was one guy who was a bit more drunk. He actually bit my hat, and that was awkward.”
But he says most fans did behave.
Several Phillies fans at the airport now call San Francisco home. They used this weekend as a convenient excuse to come home. They say the Giants park is packed with mostly corporate fans, so it just doesn’t compare to the atmosphere at Citizens Bank Park.
