The St. Louis Cardinals thumped the San Francisco Giants last night in Pac Bell or whatever the hell it’s called Park. They’ll tussle again today around 2p STL time.
A long time ago I got a job offer in San Francisco. They even flew me out for a couple days to check out the city. The company with questionable taste even went so far as to bring in a real estate broker to talk to me about some areas of the city I might want to live in.
He pulled out a map, asking: “Do you have a million dollars for a down payment on a home?”
A red X marred big swaths of his little map and the questions turned, shall we say, a little more realistic: “Do you mind fog banks?” “Any problem with new immigrants?”
Point is – San Francisco is RIDICULOSLY expensive. New York, LA, Chicago… they’re expensive but SF you have to be a BALLER to really live well.
That being said, here’s a breakdown of the super-premium seats in last nights game:
+ 11 unused
+ 3 Cardinal fans! (Including what appear to be 2 unsupervised children!!)
+ 2 guys with no Giants gear on wearing scarves. Of course they are.
+ 1 Trayvon Martin supporter.
+ 1 Giant fan that bought a cap at the gift shop before he sat down
+ 1 asshole on his phone. Of course he is.
+ 3 teenage girls whose dad is really, really rich.
+ 1 thumb sucking woman sitting alone.
+ 7 randoms
Thankfully the poor people were sanctioned off by a sturdy brick wall. And yes, we must really be getting into baseball season when we’re working this hard for material.
