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)… 🙂

Ready to Play

Nothing like having a heck of a time operating someone else camera yesterday with Will Clark at the TriStar show. I was trying to get my stuff organized when the woman in front of me asked me to take her picture, with quick instructions on how to use her camera. Should have used my Canon PowerShot S5 IS with a real lens and higher pixel count for a better picture. Went through twice because I forgot to get the inscription on my bat and 2010 mini helmet.

Cody Ross and J. Sanchez today. Maybe both on the mini helmet, but I originally wanted it just to be the two SF Giants NLCS MVPs. (Benito Santiago, the 2002 NLCS MVP, is not at this show.)

Finally, the Ready to Play part; I have my Braves/Rangers tickets for June 18th at 4:10 PM, Club Level 313R, Row 8, Seats 9 and 10. I ‘m not sure why the odd start time, just like yesterday’s Giants/A’s game. I’ll be there in lots of Giants stuff, notably my faded orange jacket (even in Hotlanta) and my by then broken in 2010 WS Champion Footjoy golf shoes (using Street Spikes). FYI, the shoes replace a previous pair of Footjoys that are somewhat worn out.

Cap Retired

Today from the MLB shop, I ordered a replacement for my 2002 World Series Giants cap, plus one for my youngest daughter. Yikes, she’s a 7 1/8, my eldest is a 7 5/8, (didn’t want one) and I’m an 8. Line today outside of Giants Dugout store in Serramonte looked like an Apple Store opening… 🙂 Saved 20% by using my Mastercard.

I brought a sign requesting “Retire This Hat” (with the hat pinned to the sign) to Game 5 of the NLCS, but with the grumpy old men around me, I generally kept it closed up. I brought it out in the third inning, which may have jinxed the team… 😦

To Sell or Not to Sell


Your thoughts – Should I sell my Club Level 202 ticket for tomorrow for enough to pay for my View Bow 310 ticket for Thursday? That’s the current going rate on StubHub. I could also use the opportunity to meet Giants Fans and help them and I afford a lot more Giants tickets in the future.
I would miss Bumgarner but see Timmy.
I’ll post my decision by tomorrow at 7 AM.
