Episode 33: Giants
When last we left our intrepid hero, he was writing in more detail about his trip to Japan in sporadic posts called “Japanaventures” on ExperimentFarm.com.
Last week our hero was contacted at work by the maker of Fabulous Computer Software. Our hero the primary administrator for Fabulous Computer Software at his place of employment, and they manufacturers wanted his help to fill a luxury suite at Monday night’s Giants Rockies game at AT&T Park.
Leaping into action, our hero recruited Super-Girlfriend Girl to accompany him, and last night they border the special luxury suite elevators and rode up to the Oracle Suite Level. (Oracle is not the maker of Fabulous Computer Software, though our hero is sure they make some fabulous computer software. No, Oracle sponsors the entire suite level at AT&T Park. So it’s not just “the suite level” it’s the “Oracle Suite Level”.)
They were in suite 25, which happens to be right behind home plate. If only they could have had better seats. Our heroes helped defeat the suite’s infestation with Excess-Of-Food-And-Alcohol by using their special imbibing and consuming powers to wolf down several plates of chicken nachos, mini-burgers, hot dogs, peanuts, popcorn, Anchor Steam, Newcastle Brown Ale, Fat Tire Ale, and Strawberry Pomegranate Margaritas.
Unfortunately, the San Francisco Nine were no match for the boys from the rocky mountains. In fact, the Rockies weren’t that good either, and after 5 innings of sloppy play, our heroes couldn’t fight off the Creeping-Sleep Monster anymore and went home ahead of the rush.
This makes 2 luxury suites our hero has visited (the other being in San Jose), while Super Girlfriend Girl has now seen a game from a luxury suite in every major Bay Area venue save the Stick. Not bad.
How many games will the Giants lose this year?
Will the Rockies repeat as NL Champions?
How will instant replay work in MLB?
and most importantly...
