Photo says it all, right? My sister and I went the Giants v. Brewers game yesterday and rooted for the BrewCrew all out. I also went to their batting practice and held up my sign and while Ryan did not come over and ask to marry me (unfortunate), Jeremy Jeffress did throw me a ball and laughed at me when I missed it. And. Memo to the pitching coach: it isn’t polite to stare. You may have learned that in kindergarten.
The game was pretty dismal other than Braun’s performance. Needless to say, I held the sign high after his incredible, incredible catch (memo to Ryan: it’s isn’t cool to look pleased with yourself. You should act like you that all the time. But you do have a beautiful smile) and hit the two run blast.
I basically left the game thinking, Why do they hit like mad the only game I root against them? and There are better ways to die than suffocating on a BART train.
It’s actually interesting, in a weird way, to root against “your” team in person, to see everything from another perspective. You should try it some time. But not in a pennant race, if possible. That makes things a little bit more sticky.
In any case, I’ll be back out the weekend of July 22nd, 2011 to cheer for my Brewers, unless someone wants to fly me out to Milwaukee the weekend of May 27th.
Next stop, The Coliseum to show some Texas pride. Which may or may not be popular. I will have a sign again, I think.
p.s. FYI, it’s “I Love U” with a “U” because there wasn’t room for a “you”. I wasn’t trying to be the hip teenage girl that I am.
