Turns out sound really travels well at 1 a.m
A celebratory fireworks show following a hard-fought San Francisco Giants victory at Oracle Park startled residents across the Bay Area, with people as far away as Oakland, Alameda, Burlingame and Redwood City reporting they could hear the loud booming sounds.
The promised show was delayed well past midnight when the game against the Colorado Rockies went to 18 innings before the Giants secured a 3-2 win.
The team has only gone to 18 or more innings seven times in its history, and only once before in San Francisco, on May 29, 2001, the San Francisco Examiner reported. That game ended in a 1-0 loss for the Giants.
Current time: 1:11am

Holy shit Giants, congratulations and all but it's 1 in the goddamn morning and I'm in bed wondering if we're all gonna die because who the fuck does house rumbling fireworks at this hour, no, it must be the end times

Jolted awake at 1am to the sound of the end of the world, apparently it’s just fireworks from the Giants game because baseball is not only incredibly boring but I guess sometimes incredibly long???
