Baseball is a big deal in my household. Opening Day is always anticipated and festive, but Game #162 is just as important and special… whether or not we’re in the postseason! With that said, you may be able to guess that yesterday was a very important day for us. After all, we are San Francisco Giants fans! #BeliEVEN No, I definitely do not want to get my hopes us. I also do not want to jinx our playoff run. However, I do want to express how excited I am to see my team in the postseason once again. We are probably spoiled with the every other year championship, but I would not mind another one.
But hey, let’s take it back one time. Yesterday was a special day. Vin Scully, the GOAT, has turned off his microphone. He has retired. And there was no better place to be than inside the park that houses his favorite MLB team (the Giants) 😉 playing against his beloved team (the Dodgers).
The Giants handed out Thank You Vin cards as fans entered the park, and you could feel that the day was going to be something else for many reasons and emotions. Although I heard his commentating only while visiting or road tripping to and from the Los Angeles area and through the replays of The Catch, I will forever remember his poetic narration and voice. The park was quite emotional as everyone sang “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” and the finale montage with Frank Sinatra’s “I Did It My Way” as the background song. It was fantastic, and I am glad I could be there. And I think no matter your fandom in the major leagues, you have to appreciate someone who has dedicated 67 years of their lives to the sport, the team, and the fans. What a phenomenal individual.
I’m also thankful for whoever bought our Cowboys vs 49ers tickets through Ticket Exchange. ;D
