I’ve Always Disliked Zoos…

…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.
