The San Francisco Giants clinched the four-game sweep of the Detroit Tigers in the World Series on Sunday night, earning the franchise's second title in the last three years.   

The Giants rode stellar pitching and timely hitting in their dominant performance over the American League champions.

After being down three games to one to the St. Louis Cardinals in the NLCS, the Giants came back. They also came back from two games down against the Cincinnati Reds in the NLDS. In other words, this team played like this championship was its destiny.

With every major sporting event comes gobs of Twitter reaction. Let's take a look.

Here's a Bruce Bochy quote courtesy of Giants fans' official Twitter feed:

I like this idea from Sports Illustrated's Joe Sheehan:

I can't say I disagree with him. The Giants did show us this year, and in 2010, that big bankrolls and superstar names aren't required to win the one that matters most. At this point, nothing this franchise does would be surprising.

Let's leave things with a quote from Bochy, courtesy of Fox Sports:

Anyone who watched this team has to agree. From the divisional round all the way through, the Giants just had a vibe surrounding them. Part of it was Bochy's coaching, and part of it was the baseball gods doing their job, but most of the credit goes to the players' team-first attitude under all circumstances.
