Back at the Coliseum for my A’s and some root beer floats

On Tuesday I made it back to the Coliseum for the first time in over three seasons. And it was Root Beer Float Day! I hadn’t been to one since 2011 when Mark Ellis was traded.

But it was so fun to be back. Free parking. A great catch up with some friends and look! Dave Kaval and Ken Korach took photos with me!

Additionally, I just enjoyed hearing the sounds of the game, walking through the park, seeing the field I grew up loving. It was special. I missed all of it. I want to go back!

The Coliseum is old but it still has a fun feel to it. I love you, Oakland!

How I am celebrating the Warriors

“The Warriors are insufferable. The fans are bandwagon chumps. They are this stacked team and nobody likes how they’ve destroyed parity.” I don’t care.

I just watched the pilot episode of ‘Pitch’ and I hated it

But this show did not make it seem plausible. It didn’t even make the effort to make such a potential historical event seem like something that could actually happen. Instead, no reality was suspended and it felt like some made for TV Disney Channel movie. There were some bits of reality to it but way too much fantasy to make this show worth watching.

The idea of a woman pitching in the big leagues isn’t something that I think will never happen. I would love to see it. But Fox (yeah, my employer) did not do a great job of portraying that reality. Instead they gave us a premise with little to no background and a reality I could not live with.

I went to Qualcomm Stadium to see the Jaguars face the Chargers

I had never been to Qualcomm Stadium and I wanted to see a game there before the team potential moves. Jaguars were in town. Let’s go!

The stadium is not impressive but getting there on the trolley was real easy. Nothing too nice about this stadium. The audio was weak. Scoreboard was weak. Jaguars looked weak.

So much weakness. But hey, off my bucket list!
