Instant Replay

Song - Take Me Out to the Ball Game by Peavy & Flannery & Giants

On Thursday the SF Giants had their Home Opener and guess who was there? and Mr. B!

We dropped Mika off in the morning at my mom's house and mom was all decked out (along with Mr. B) in dad's CRAWFORD shirt!

Pretty cute huh?

Getting off the Bay Bridge and heading to the Pier parking lot - I just love this view of the bridge.

Buster Posey greeted us at the stadium as did our good friends Chris & Jodi
who joined us at the game!

The excitement was palatable!!!

Everyone was decked out in Orange and Black (except for the Dodger fans (boo-hiss - JK)!

The pre-game announcers were all decked out on a beautiful day in April. Hi Shawn!!!

The Dodgers were warming up and preparing to whoop the Giants!

It's always fun to people watch at AT&T Park but especially on Opening Day!

I gotta get Mr. B a suit like that! Just for special occasions of course!!!

The Extra Large American Flag was brought out in style............

And long may it wave..........

They brought out Little Leaguers and Willie Mays.  

We had not one but two flyover's!!!

A big ol' jet airliner..............

And a flock of seagulls.

I don't know what happened to the Blue Angels this year.  
But I was majorly bummed....

Until I remembered that Hunter Pence is right near our seats 
- insert big smile HERE!

Everyone was ready....

The boating fans were ready!

The SF police were ready!

And then it was kind of boring for 4 innings and not just because the Dodgers were winning. 
Mostly because our Giants were playing like it was their first practice game. 
Peavy didn't pitch well and we made some fumbles out in the field and
No One was hitting well!

 The fans were so bored

that ice cream was getting it's close up shot in the seats in front of me.

But then somehow we came alive!!!

We caught up and then passed the Dodgers by!

We stood up and cheered our little hearts out!

We had pow-wow's in the infield.

Hi guys....welcome back!

Fans were catching fly balls - barehanded!!!!

Dodger and Giant fans were friends again.

All was right in our part of the world.

Then we began to get in our flow!

And then......

Three Giants got on base.....

And then Hunter Pence hit a Grand Slam!!!!!

Posey couldn't get the grin off his face in the next inning.

And that's the final score folks!

The boys are back in town!
