It came down to Game 7 to decide who would be the World Series Champions: Giants or Royals. It turns out the San Francisco Giants were able to beat out the Kansas City Royals 3-2 Wednesday night.
It’s the third title for the Giants in five years. They also won in 2010 and 2012. Fans from both sides took to Twitter after the game with a mix of jubilation and disappointment.
Many of the posts about the Giants' win were pure joy:
I love seeing everyone's giants posts #2014WorldSeries

Man, I'm not going to act like I'm the biggest Giants fan but it's hard not to get emotional. The Bay Area is such a family. #GoGiants

Been watching baseball for 40 years, never saw anything approaching what Bumgarner just did. Congrats Giants fans. Hold your heads high KC.

Some people accused others of being "bandwagon" Giants fans:

While many offered congratulations to the Giants, the Royals received some praise too. They did, after all, come in second place.
Royals finish in second place once again
