This weekend the Orange and Black Attack come in for a three game set against our beloved Green Machine. There are many of us ANers coming out to one or all the games, so if you're going to be there, let us know! This thread is to help us arrange some unofficial AN meet-ups before, during or after the games.Friday's game is at 7:05pm, and pregame ceremonies (including Dallas Braden's grandmother Peggy throwing out the first pitch) starting at 6:40pm.
Saturday is a 1pm game, and you can make it a double-header if you head out to Sacramento after the last out. Dallas Braden will be visiting the Stockton Ports for a Perfect Game celebration before their night game. I know there are a few ANers doing this.
If you make it to Sunday's game early enough, you can get a Dallas Braden Perfect Game poster to hang on your wall. This is also a 1pm start and hopefully will send the Giants back across The Bay on a five game losing streak (root for the Diamondbacks tonight).
The additional activity on Sunday is the A's Talk show broadcast from the Holiday Inn on Hegenberger. Chris Townsend told Emperor Nobody that he wants us to represent, so if you can come out, do it! It should start around the normal time, 20 minutes after the game. Daric Barton will be there to answer questions and such.
I have only heard some talk of a meetup on Friday, but there hasn't been any real plans that I've seen yet, so let's figure it out here.
