I’m not the world’s expert on baseball (or any sport, for that matter), but I know enough to enjoy a game and follow along. So when a company affiliated with my work passed along their group rate for a Phillies game, Chris and I jumped at the chance. We’ve lived here for three years and this would be our first Phillies game. I was excited to sport my Victorino shirt!
But then we found out the Phillies would be playing the San Francisco Giants. Uh oh…
As I mentioned in this post, Chris is a Giants fan, and I’ve become one
to keep the peace in the marriage by association. ;)
I’m sorry Philly, but we rooted for our home team. After a whack first game with Barry Zito pitching, the Giants won games 2 and 3! We weren’t planning on attending last night’s game, but one we found out that Tim Lincecum was pitching, we had to go.
I gotta hand it to Phillies fans though…not once did we feel threatened, and the few heckles we did get were all in good fun (and when it started raining last night, the guy next to us offered me a poncho). I’ll be sporting my Victorino shirt for another game. :)
Here was our view for Wednesday’s game 2. Despite the nosebleed seats, we had a pretty awesome view of the skyline:
