San Francisco


MIDLAND, NC - I’m going back to San Francisco in March for a brief business trip. Now I can formally embrace my new MLB team the Giants.

Southerners didn’t grow up around baseball. The sport was a sport of big cities and shift workers. No respectful southern town of 100,000 could be expected to fill a 30,000 seat stadium in the middle of a work day.

And so I never learned to appreciate the game. I have been to one MLB game in my life and that was indoors in Toronto.

There is a void in my life after football and baseball could be just the ticket. Beer and hotdogs.

...not only beer and hotdogs, sir, but warm weather, a gentleman's cadence, and the crack of hardwood on horsehide.

Fastballs, curveballs, sliders and change-ups.

Organ music.

Base stealing.

And the coup de grace: the walkoff home run. (or the no hitter)...


Perhaps we shall meet when you amble out West...

Don't dismiss bowling as a potential void-filler!

Embrace basketball for the love of God!!

But not the Bobcats, they suck.

I used to be a much bigger baseball fan than I am today.

But, attending a baseball game is a lot of fun. Not just major league games, but minor league games too. In fact, minor league games might be even more fun.

We have a good AAA Cubs team here but the stadium is so far from me. Oh...there I go...its supposed to be called a park.

wReggie and Phfrankie hooking up at a ballgame is something that should happen.

The Giants? Really? Any self-respecting Southerner pulls for the Atlanta Braves, of course. I used to sit and watch them with my Dad. It seemed a little slow until I learned to watch pitching. Quite a chess match, or even poker game, between pitcher and batter. Enjoy.
