while we’re on the sports theme here…capitalizing on the amazing summertime sunshine last weekend, we hit the bleachers at the oakland coliseum for an a’s vs. mariners game with ryan, chris, moshe, lisa & tim, laura, daniel, nick and jake. we took up two full rows and chowed down on hot dogs, peanuts, popcorn, and beers while heckling the outfield, doing the wave, and belting “take me out to the ballgame” while swaying, arms around eachothers’ shoulders, in the seventh inning stretch. it happened to be “stomper,” the a’s mascot’s birthday, so we cheered on the elephant and his other furry friends. to celebrate, there were members from the spca walking up-for-adoption puppies around the stadium and we even came home with a commemorative calendar of the oakland a’s with their dogs!!! (who needs bobbleheads when you can get cute dog photos?!)
it was a good game right until the end when the a’s gave away 3 runs for a loss of 5-2 in the 9th (like that baseball lingo?!). summer bummer, but we still had a blast and can’t wait to go again…..but we really can’t wait to go to a GIANTS game to see some real baseball go sports!
