Thanks for the cover story on the Giants' amazing World Series win. When Brian Wilson blew strike three past Nelson Cruz, tears of joy rolled down my cheeks. I thought about my dad being a 13-year-old kid when the Giants first came to San Francisco and about the decades of futility and agonizing near-misses since then. A great big hole in the collective souls of Giants fans everywhere has just closed up.

If the school had allowed H.S. to protest during the game, it would have been unfair to the basketball players and the other cheerleaders who were also participating. Parents and fans would wonder why she wasn't cheering for that one particular player, and the focus would have shifted from the game to the controversy.
