Take Me Out to the Ballgame!

This past weekend, I went to my very second San Francisco Giants game! The last time I had seen them, I was in preschool and too young to appreciate that goodness that is the "all-American pastime".
Plus, we got to see the AT&T "Home of the Giants" Park for the first time- and let me tell you- that thing is HUUGGEE.

It had over three stories, and we climbed loads and loads of steps (okay, maybe just 4 flights) to get to our seats.

The food was greasy and fried and delicious, although it cost an arm and a leg for this meal and a drink. But hey, how else are they gonna make money at the park? I can't ever imagine...

One of my favoritest things about the park was the awesome sculptures they had behind left field. The mitt was beautifully made, and the Coca-Cola bottle was actually a slide that people could stand in line for (you can see the crowd around the bottom of the bottle) and take a ride! The boys went crazy for that one.

And the game.
To tell you the truth, the game was interesting... but it is baseball. I'm not hatin' on the sport (I played it for a few years myself!) but it's more about the experience at the park and the atmosphere than the actual game.

We did win though, so we left the victors of the game!
GO GIANTS!

PS: I'm probably killing all you non-Californians out here with this Giants talk, so what is YOUR favorite baseball team?

I agree with you, baseball is more about the experience at the ballpark rather than the game! That Coke slide is awesome! How cool. My favorite team is the St Louis Cardinals :) GO CARDS!

I've been to baseball games twice...it really was an American experience, but honestly, they mostly just stand there doing nothing ;)

Oh my goodness! That ball park is amazing, especially the sculptures! I want to go on that awesome Coca Cola slide! :)

We love the Diamondbacks here in Arizona! I've only been to a few games, but it's sooo much fun being part of the crowd (I like that part more than the actual game, too)!
