I haven't seen if this is posted anywhere else, and if it is, well, shoot me. I could use some of my own time on the DL. Anyways, anyone gonna be at AT&T on Tuesday night for the game?
Going to the All Star Game has always been one of the items on my life's "to-do" list (along with go to a Super Bowl, go to a World Series Game, go to Game 7 of the NHL Finals, play Pebble Beach, etc.) The ASG may be hokey and just an exhibition that players don't really want to play in; but for me, the chance to see, in person, a collection of the greatest players in the game would totally be worth it. The All Star Game is an event worth watching, at least for me...and I've always wished I could get to one.
When I realized they were holding the game here this year, I had entered the raffle to try and get selected for the chance to get tickets to the game...and I failed there, which sucked. I was bummed, but quickly put it out of my mind. Then I got a call yesterday from my former roomie. He says his mom got tickets to the game because she's a season ticket holder for the team across the bay, and she was unable to sell them, would I like to go? HELLS YES I WOULD! So I'll be at the game, sitting in section 305, row 1. Its basically along the first base line in the OF for those who are not AT&T Park educated, so it should be pretty rad.
So, now that I've found out that I will be attending the Mid-Summer Classic, I'm wondering if there will be any other AN folk at the game, pimped out in their Green and Gold to support the AL's starting pitcher for the game...
