AN Day 2011 Recap: We won!

AN Day 2011: We laughed, we cried, we texted security.....

But seriously, WE WON!!!!!

There was much frivolity had by all, and I'll allow anyone who wants to upload their pictures or add their comments or whatever they want here in this thread, but thank you all for coming out to celebrate our team and our home on the internet!


I've got to say, I have learned SO MUCH about tailgating from this wonderful group of A's fans. You all are so awesomely wonderful at throwing tailgates, it's a pleasure (most of the time) to organize them.


I of course forgot to take pictures during the tailgate, so I'm hoping someone else did, but here's a few from my collection of gametime action.....



Looking down one of the rows of ANers. I'll let everyone identify themselves if they wish, but the blur on the right are the hands of the magically mysterious Athletica.



More ANers...


The post-game tailgate was side tracked by some flooding and by the OPD officer who warned us to leave, but we could not be deterred. Special thanks to wacchampions and MobiusKlein for bringing the grills, and to everyone for bringing the fabulous food and drinks (many of which are currently in my living room).


There were so many ANers I hadn't met before who came, as well as many that I've seen even as recently as two weeks ago, so thank you all for coming out! For those of you who might be a little shy about these events, you can tell, we have a good time. ;)


Okay, I have some other pictures, but seriously y'all, post your own thoughts and pictures here!


And before I depart, I must first quote the text message that was sent to the A's during the game. I'd suggest others post theirs here as well, so you can get a full picture of what happened during the game....

Service. There is an offensive sign out in the left field bleachers. Someone is holding it up in between innings. I think it's section 137, around the 3rd row. Thank you for looking in to this.
