In light of the recent news that Pat Burell is retiring for good…
…and human zoos? Well. Those are the worst.
That is an SF Chronicle photo. I told you it was a zoo. Literally. People behind bars.
I can’t personally testify though. I had an unfortunate scheduling conflict which brought me into San Francisco, just a few miles away from the park but occupied me for most of the hours of FanFest. I was planning to stop by and check it out for a few minutes, but as the day progressed I realized it wasn’t really a check-it-out situation. As I listened to the radio driving in, I kept hearing, “if you are not already in line, do not come! Repeat, do not come!” And reading on Facebook afterwards there were a lot of people who waited for hours and didn’t get in or got in and were disappointed. So I ate my avocado sandwich (avocado sandwiches are really good, for the record. Really good.) on a bench and watched the parades of people and orange and black. And later got to drive behind them on the freeway. I might as well have been at the event. I mean, I was there for the traffic.
Anyway. If any of you were there, do share, beautiful people. I am curious to hear some firsthand accounts.
Lastly, this post is for the guy with the Best Accent in Baseball. He also cracked my Best Dressed MLB’er list, in this outfit.
I am still in shock about Andy Pettitte announcing his retirement. He is one of the reasons I fell in love with the game of baseball and I will miss him- and yes, his accent- a lot. Tipping my white beanie to him.
