Fans of the Oakland A's and San Francisco Giants
Change of scenery not helping Hughes today...
I did this a couple of seasons ago and am looking to start it up, again. My idea is to take advantage of the discounts that groups get on field-level seats. Problem is that they have an minimum of 25 attendees to get the group prices.
I can gather up 10 or so folks for most games and am hoping that enough of y'all would like to get in on the fun. So...please read the details, below and send me an email if you're interested: cspring (at) gmail (dot) com.
Date: Sun, 4/16
Cost: $20 each (normally $30)
Due Date: 4/1
Oh, and like the subject sez, they'll be giving away a Huston Street Bobblehead that day. Queueing up early would probably be required to get one, though.
Thanks for reading. GO A'S!!!
Welp... so much for that.
Of course, this
is a little tidbit we can certainly be proud of:
With the Giants' loss, neither the Giants nor A's have a chance at postseason play, rendering the remainder of their games "meaningless."
Since 1997 and counting the rest of 2005, the Giants' number of "meaningless" games is 14 (eight in 1999, two in 2001, four this season).
Since 1999, the A's number is 11 (five in 1999, one in 2004, five this year).

Starting next month, the Oakland Museum of California will be hosting Baseball as America
, the traveling exhibition from the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown. The exhibition is included with regular museum admission ($8).
The museum is really easy to get to from BART--exit at the Lake Merritt station, head out the 9th St. exit, and head up two blocks.

Heya, I got an e-mail from Tom Fitzgerald, formerly of Open Season
and Top of the Sixth
in the SF Chronicle. He's looking for some input from Bay Area season ticket holders (MLB, NFL, NHL, NBA) for a column.( Read more...Collapse )
His e-mail is: TFitzgerald@sfchronicle.com
So I wanted to get some opinions from fans other than Giants fans, cause well, we are biashttp://msn.foxsports.com/mlb/pgStory?contentId=2171304
This slideshow has pictures of Barry Bonds from 1989-2004, the biggest "jump" in his body mass seems to be from the 1998 year to the 1999 year but it does not appear to be totally dramatic. Does anyone see a dramatic change from one year to another?
This whole Jose Canseco thing reminds me of a Family Guy
bit in which Tom Green is laying on the ground, suckling on a cow's udder, then turns to the camera and says, "Does anyone out there still remember me?!"
