there ace at & a stadium rocking tonight. find an empty seat in that stadium. it would go for a lot of money. giants doing real well. we'll leave that for raj. >> there is a little bit of a culture clash in this world series. >> yes. one reporter from our nbc station in dallas-ft. worth sensed a little of that difference in the air highly he was while he was on the air. >> reporter: right over there there's people smoking weed. it's coming this way. people are nice here. we're not in new york. nobody is going to spit on us, tell us we're bad people it's san francisco. people smoking weed over there. they don't care. they want to see their team win, but they're all half buzzed out. >> okay. prop 19, mister. >> we're not all that way, newy. we're just laid back. that's reporter newy scruggs who got a little distracted. he described the experience as
6:46 pm
an only in san francisco experience. he's probably right about that to some extent. >> don't mess with san francisco, newy. that's all i've got to tell you. >> because we'll give you a peace sign that you'll never forget. >> that's right. we'll march on down. >> oh, boy. yes, we are watching the weather very careful this week. >> definitely. the rain on the radar right now, we're just barely missing at&t park heading into northern california. right now for world series game one, temperatures are in the upper 50s and low 60s. winds very calm. that certainly is good there for the players out there at the park. and the showers just offshore. let's expand on out here. what you'll notice is about 11 miles out we're picking up a little green right there, little light shower activity. because of the motion of this system and its very slow movement, it's heading from the south and the west right off towards the north. i mean, you don't see this scenario too much. it's happening on the first game of the world series. hopefully this is a good indication for the giants.
6:47 pm
you can see without the southerly motion, once again the heaviest rainfall is missing san francisco. you can see if you're traveling to the north bay, drastically different conditions. right on highway 101, south of novato you want to be cautious it's been a while since we've seen pockets of rain this heavy. dry in the south and east bay. we expect rainfall as we head into tomorrow. temperatures on the cooler side, upper 50s and low 60s. what we've had over the past two days or so. as we look at our weather headlines for tomorrow we'll see the rain coming back for most of the bay area for thursday and still more showers in our weekend forecast with halloween upon us. the first system is already bringing us impacts. it's very, very slow to move, kind of stalling out just offshore. that's why we'll see the rainfall continuing into tomorrow and also for friday. 60s inland for thursday and friday that rain stays in our forecast. here is a quick look at the time line. 7:00 p.m. tonight, mainly a north bay event and into
6:48 pm
midnight on thursday, we're looking here at also the showers in the north bay and entering the peninsula 7:00 a.m. thursday we're looking at rainfall for parts of the east bay and also the peninsula. the heaviest rain still remains in the north bay at this point. that's where we think the largest totals will come, possibly a half inch up to an inch in the bay. as for the east bay, 6:00 a.m. temperatures in the mid-foets and elsewhere here we're also looking at mid to upper 40s across the bay area. expecting showers from first pitch tomorrow night through 8:00 p.m. a look at the numbers, it will stay on the cooler side with plenty of 60 tomorrow. once again, scattered rainfall from the north bay to the south bay. 67 in palo alto, 62 in pacifica, 64 in san francisco, and we'll see the same trend here lasting into the east bay and also into the north bay. you can get more anytime on the weather channel on cable. i know a lot of pressure you

6:51 pm
then who won that 1905 world series behind three shutout victories from their ace christy matth matthewson. this serves as a reminder of what the country looked like when teddy roosevelt was president. the new york giants were in 14 world series total, winning 5 of them. then in 1958 they moved west and have won four national league pennants to date. so the question becomes, of the three previous world series appearances the giants have made since moving to san francisco, which did they have the best chance to win? >> we asked ray raddow to weigh in. >> '89 they were not the best team by a fairly wide margin. '02 they were about a coin flip. '62 they come within a foot of winning the thing. >> reporter: that first world series in san francisco remains a reminder of how important it to seize the day. >> '62 was sort of, we've lost but we'll be back. it's a great lesson on maybe not. maybe you won't get back. >> when you have had the great teams that the giants have had
6:52 pm
here. of course willie mays and of course bonds they've had outstand willing teams. it goes to show you how hard it is to do this. >> reporter: part of why we follow america's pastime so intensely during the world series is it helps remind us that as much things change over the decades, pretty much things stay the same. >> reporter: i'll tell you what, magical season we're experiencing. for complete giants coverage of course right here on nbc bay area, your official home of the giants, also our friends over at comcast sports net bay area. after tonight's game you can get exclusive coverage with mike and dwayne on comcast sports net bay area. nbc and comcast cover ying you when it comes to the giants. one more story not just giants related by the 49ers. it's a mess. team owner says he will not fire
