Giants fans raise over $8k, Ready to fly plane taunting Dodgers for opening series

Back at the end of January, there were reports that a group of Giants fans were raising money to hire a plane to fly over Dodger Stadium with a banner that reads "Giants 2010 Champs: BEAT LA".

Well it looks like F*ck Yeah! SHUT UP! Inc has surpassed their goal (101%) and raised the $8,000 necessary to make this a reality. It will be nice to see the banner flying over our hated rivals' stadium and hopefully it is accompanied by a large contingency of Giants fans at every game.

The payment has been delivered to the plane company with the opening series days reserved for flight, and the banner is being manufactured right now.

If you missed it the first time, here is the mission statement for the event:
Two years ago one man came up with an idea. He waited for the perfect time to enact this diabolical, yet beautiful concept. One concept, one idea, that would shock the sports world while leaving Southern California feeling empty inside. Now is the time.

As most of you die hard fans know, The World Champion San Francisco Giants open up Major League Baseball play at Chavez Ravine in Los Angeles. In this hostile environment The World Champion San Francisco Giants will need the support of The World Champion San Francisco Giant's Faithful. The plan is to fly a banner 3,000 feet above Chavez Ravine that says, "Giants 2010 Champs: BEAT LA". This banner will fly in Los Angeles for the Thursday, Saturday and Sunday games for an hour and 20 minutes. It is a great way to pay tribute to The World Champion San Francisco Giants while giving the other organization a taste of what it is like to be World Series Champions: something they haven't tasted since 1988. So, we ask the faithful of The World Series San Francisco Giants to pledge whatever you can to make this idea, this dream, a reality.


Faithful Supporters of The World Champion San Francisco Giants

This should kick up the Giants vs. Dodgers rivalry a little bit.

Also a qucik note any extra money beyond the cost of flying the banner is going to be donated to the Junior Giants so don't be afraid to keep contributing because it goes to a good cause regardless.
