Giants - 10, Milwaukee - 6!!!

Keith and I were lucky enough to enjoy the San Francisco Giants' season-opener at AT&T Park today, along with over 47,000 other people. After hot temperatures yesterday, we woke up this morning to RAIN. The game being rained out was a threat for the majority of the morning. We decided to head up to the ballpark since the radio was saying the rain was subsiding in San Francisco. We already had tickets so we would have to figure out what to do with them anyway. To our surprise, it cleared up and the game went on as scheduled, all without a drop of rain. We sat in the bleachers which was a lot of fun. Do you know that people buy bleacher seats because they're the least expensive and that way they can spend all their money on beer? I swear. Lots of beer flowing in them bleachers.

Best boot-ay in all of baseball, right here (Aaron Rowand):

While others enjoy beer and hot dogs at the ballpark, I enjoy many (any) other options. Clam chowder in a sourdough bread bowl:

Kettle Corn:

And then there was this fried piece of dough. Half sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar. The other half sprinkled with powdered sugar then topped with fresh strawberries and whipped cream.

Sweet Jesus!
This picture was taken less than five minutes later. Please notice the empty plate!

Sully Sullenberger (the pilot that landed his plane on the Hudson), threw out the first pitch. Taylor Hicks sang The National Anthem.
It was a great game and a wonderful day spent with my husband. I think I ate too much junk though. Oh yeah, I also indulged in some peanuts. Gotta have those when you go to the ballgame, right? I'll be running this day off for weeks!
Until later.............
