The Giants went down the Canyon of Heroes for the second time in four years on Tuesday. While nowadays this honor is reserved mainly for Championship teams (sorry Jets), in the past it’s held celebrations for Presidents, returning war heroes, foreign dignitaries, and even Albert Einstein. That brings us to our Question of the Week. Get it right and I’ll dump some ticker tape on your head. The answer, as always, is after the jump.
What was the last non-sports Canyon of Heroes parade?
Answer: John Glenn and the rest of the crew of the Space Shuttle Discovery mission STS-95 got the hero treatment on November 16, 1998.
