Again, De ja vu, again- Maybe the Giants should patent what they are doing on the road. The Braves are copying the Giants of last year, and we do not object. The Giants got only 4 hits, but all 3 runs, were once again homers. Posey got the only other hit in the 1st inning. The Braves got 5 hits, and 4 walks, and left 7 on base.
These games are becoming boring, if they were not so exciting. Only Romo changed his pattern. Striking out the 1st man, before getting two ground outs. Nobody on base period- Shocking!
Atlanta honored the negro league history, and had 18 former African-American players greeting the crowd.
We did not stay for the post-game Cool and the gang concert.
And now from the ladies point. How can you not enjoy taking two in a row from a team on top of their division, and yet it is much harder to savor these two wins, because the fans are so gracious. Last night even the one drunk Braves fan came back and apologized for telling me he couldn’t give me a high-five unless I removed my Giants cap 1st. He then shook Bert’s hand and talked baseball. These fans show gracious support for the team and cheer when the opposition is introduced. They cheer the Braves on rabidly with the tomahawk chop. I have a video and will try to upload latter.
And news flash, ours is not the only incredible story to develop as a result of a love of the game. Debbie, the usher, shared that her husband was discovered calling a little league game. She and he both came from the same town, and were commuting to Braves games, and finally decided to do it together, and as a result ties the knot. So we now have a Brave Romance and a Giant love story.
Bert and I had Benihana before the game so nothing to report on the food front until after the game.
