FREE TICKETS! That’s what makes Baseball great!
Everybody sing with me…

“My cool boss has a first name,
Ok, it breaks down there but you get the idea.
Boss-man extraordinaire coughed up 2 tickets and a parking pass to the Giants .vs Dodgers today and I am ever so appreciative. (I called everybody on my crew looking for anyone who wanted to go. Guys, you missed a treat.)
Thinking that I learned my lesson last time, this time, I layered my clothing and was prepared for the arctic temperature. Much to my surprise it was actually HOT out there today. Since the ballpark faces south, I’ve got a nice red face on my right side and my equally pasty white on the left. Makes for an interesting look.
The seats were awesome. 11 rows off the Giant’s dugout; field level. I was close enough to spit on the Dodgers as they ran by. (I didn’t…but I could have) The seats were so far away from the cheap seats that you had to have a bus just to get to the cheap seats from where I was. It was awesome.
I got there about noon and did what everybody else did, I bought lunch. Given the wide variety of food available to me at the ball-park, I chose the traditional route and had Fried Rice. (Ok, so it’s probably only traditional baseball food for me.)
Anyhow, it was a great game The Giants played well and Barry Bonds splashed one at the top of the ninth to cinch the win. All in all a great way to spend a day. (Oh yea and tooling up and down the 101 at speeds that can’t really be described as safe without a 5 point harness was way cool too.)
Ray, Fiona, my prayers are with you. Thank you ever so much for the tickets but considering the circumstances, I would have rather just stayed home. Hope things are well there. Tell me how I can repay the favor.
But anyhow…I’m off to JJs in a few.
Until next time, it would have been more fun with you.
