It is an even year (2016), so that means the Giants are going to win the World Series. I can feel it.
When I first met Rory, I was relived to hear that he was a Giants fan (and a fellow 49ers fan). He was sort of destined to be one since he grew up in the Bay Area. This makes for an easy, fight free household during any sports season.
Rory and I often visit San Francisco and every time we go during baseball season, we HAVE to make a game. Last year was the exception. We went to SF to get a couch from his uncle and we didn't get to see a game because we had two cute little fans in tow. But this year, we will be back. And no, we won't be those annoying people who bring their babies to the game. Not this year at least. Next year, the girls can soak in their Giants heritage and become lifelong fans.
I remember my first game with Rory. The Giants were playing the Dodgers and it was tied 0 - 0 and Pat the Bat came up and hit a nice home run into the bleacher seats (around the Coke bottle). It sealed the win and we were some very happy fans. I may have gotten super sunburnt that game too. Ain't nobody got time for sunscreen (really, I should have reapplied it over and over again, ugh).
But really with the season starting, I am searching the Giants site for a game or three that we can attend this year. I am giddy just thinking about it.
Here is a few pictures of some of my favorite recent games.
Our 1st anniversary game (August 2014)
Braves vs. Giants (May 2013)
Seats behind home plate. Treat Yourself. (May 2012)

Not at a game, but supporting our team
Some Giants stats on myself:
I have been a Giants fan my whole life.
My favorite player is JT Snow. He IS and WAS the best defensive first baseman around.
Every time I travel to San Francisco for work, I treat myself to seats behind home plate. They cost a small fortune, but they are WORTH it.
I have been to more games than I can count.
I took my girls to a Giants game when they were in my belly, so they are going to be FOREVER fans as well.
