The San Francisco Giants crushed the Cardinals in Game 7 to advance to the World Series last night.In the ninth inning, the skies opened up. But with San Fran up 9-0, the umpires decided to let the players finish the game through the rain.

The result: Beautiful images of drenched players, childlike, celebrating an NLCS victory.

For our money, this was the coolest-looking title celebration in recent sports history.
