Better than my last Postseason Strip

I last bought a Giants Postseason Strip in 1998, the year they lost a tiebreaker game to the Cubs (which would now be called the Wild Card Play In game). The weather was cold, windy, and foggy when I returned to the ticket window to turn in my tickets.

This year, I’ve been to both Game Twos so far, NLDS and NLCS, same as in 2010, although I purchased individual game tickets. Much better.

I can only pray my tickets for Sunday will be valid.

I’m selling my NLCS Game 7 tickets for Monday, October 22nd because I’ll be playing in the Cal Baseball Foundation Golf Tournament at the Contra Costa Country Club in Pleasant Hill. Allen Craig signed up for it months ago. I don’t know about Xavier Nady. May they both be too busy that evening to show up (although shotgun start is at 10am)… 🙂

MLB.com won’t accept my comments and Giants Opening Day

Giants Opening Day Recap

I’ll start this off with I believe MLB.com may be blocking me from posting comments to their articles. It would be *great* at least to hear *why* they’re doing this, but I haven’t gotten a response to my “issue” message.
Here’s what I *was* going to post with the recap:
For both this and last year’s Opening Day, the family I invited to go with my daughter to the game informed me on the Wednesday before the game that they couldn’t go because of previous commitments (which they didn’t mention when I invited them). Both games went into extras (13 last year, 12 this year), finished with the same score, and with a walk-off single by Aaron Rowand. At least this year’s replacement guest was a heck of a lot happier to be there today (and stayed with us through all 12 innings, compared to last years replacements who left in the seventh inning being very uncomfortable to be with the crowd at the park).
