World Series fans have seen them on TV, those four Giants fans wearing huge panda heads to honor their hero, Pablo “Panda” Sandoval.

Well, the panda head dudes, and one gal, are heading (back) to KC for Game 6, reports The San Francisco Chronicle.

They’ve been at every post-season game in San Francisco. Some fans like them, some don’t. They try not to block anyone’s view by sitting in a row with a walkway behind them.

They came to Kansas City, without their heads, last week and met George Brett at a Kauffman Stadium bar, according to the newspaper.

One of them gave Brett his phone number in case the former Royal needed restaurant tips while he was in San Francisco.

Brett saw the panda heads at Saturday’s game and texted them from his luxury box. After the game, which the Giants won, he texted again: “Looks like you’re coming back to Kansas City.”

Yep, they are.
