Giants Fanatic

Free is Good

This afternoon, one of my co-workers -- she used to be my director before a reorganization put us in different divisions -- gave me two tickets to tonight's Giants-Nationals game. I called dave_gallaher, but he's not available tonight. David Clark, however, was available when I called and so he'll meet me at the ball park and the tickets will not go to waste.

Even better, my co-worker e-mailed me while I was at home taking a morning conference call, so I was able to bring along my Giants kit bag with jacket, seat cushion, hat, etc.

And here I was expecting that I wouldn't see any SF Giants games in person this year at all.

Way More Than My Money's Worth

I'm too tired to write about too much about it, but I had a great time tonight at the Giants game. Turnout for the game was sparse, so David Clark and I had room to spread out. The Giants got out to a lead, gave it up, looked like they were going to give up the game, and managed to pull off the dramatic comeback. And you couldn't make up the drama: Pablo Sandoval, who had earlier in the game tripped going around second attempting to stretch a double into a triple, came to the plate and hit a game-winning home run. The people behind us who went home in the seventh inning sure missed a lot!

I may not make any other Giants games this season, but this one was worth a whole lot to see in terms of entertainment value.
