Gigantes y Cervezas

Great weekend!  I realize it's Wednesday, but it's taken me just that long to recover.  I can't wait to share it with you!  Let me start with the Giants game on Saturday.

My lovely diehard Brewer fan buddies from Wisco flew in for the weekend for the series against the Giants.  It's not easy rooting for the other team on someone else's turf, but Belle and the crew did it all with class and local pride.  They did the Brewers justice.  

As for me, I'm not much of a sports fan, but was happy to be along for the ride.

Apparently "free belt buckle day" made the price of tickets skyrocket, so passed on the hundred dollar bleachers scalpers offered and hit a Giants bar instead.  (See terrible-quality photo burgled from Facebook below.)

Sadly, the Brewers lost.  Maybe if we had been there in person things would have been different.  I like to think a ragtag crew of Sconies helped contribute to their victory last Friday night, though it nearly incited a riot when they flashed the "T" at Nyjer Morgan's alter ego, T-Plush and he flashed it back.  Giants fans thought he was flipping them the bird, and nearly booed him off the field.  Then they boo hooed about it all over the news.

Such a complex game!  Glad I had some great mentors.
