There’s something about baseball that I just love — it’s just so quintessential Americana. The cheering, the jeering, the hot dogs… It’s a whole other experience. I grew up watching baseball, so when we got a chance to see the SF Giants game this past Sunday as they were playing the Cleveland Indians at AT&T Park, I jumped at the chance. We were in the nosebleed bleacher seats, but sat right next to loud cheerers and jeerers, so we felt right in the middle of the game.
Some things I learned from this experience:
(1) You will not regret bringing a winter coat and gloves, even if the afternoon temperature seems way too hot.
(2) The restroom lines move amazingly fast. Amazingly. Even the women’s. If it’s 30 people deep, you won’t be waiting for longer than a few minutes.
(3) The Cal-Trains after the game are packed. Like sardines. Even the ones running before the game ends.
(4) You won’t see nicer views at any other baseball stadium.
PS: The Giants won, 3-1! And got 16 strikeouts! Go Giants!
