How many games have you been to?
That's our pathetic answer for curious folks who find out we live a few block from the ball park. It's like asking a New Yorker how many times they've climbed up the Statue of Liberty. That's for people from the suburbs and tourists. I can do it tomorrow or any day after that.
With the season winding down and my Giants on a winning streak though, I wanted to give you a little peek at our 1 baseball outing courtesy of our apartment management company. I'm a firm believer in rooting for the home team, so I bought a Giants visor and at least tried to match up players numbers and names.
As someone who married into a big part Jewish, part Italian family from Jersey and as an East Coaster myself, I couldn't help but feel like an insider while all these San Franciscans tried to fist pump. Do they play Journey in bars here and the whole bar starts fist pumping? There's a whole lot of Bucknellians in Hoboken who started the craze I think. Can't you see Andy Bernard fist pumping to Journey at a Cornell frat party?
We got pretty excited when we saw this bearded guy warming up in the bull pen. Then they announced him as a closer and it wasn't Brian Wilson. Who knew they had more than one black bearded closer?
Anyballs, we're glad we got to go at least once and there's still plenty to do at the ball park even after baseball season is over. Cal football . . . opera . . . etc. We may even have to hit up Candlestick Park if they can get the shootings under control.
Any attraction in your town that you've been putting off since you've been a resident?
