bay area music bloggers go to a ball game (live blogging)

I came up with an idea a couple weeks ago to go to a ball game with some of the other music bloggers from the bay area. Tonight’s 6:05pm Florida Marlins @ SF Giants game will be it. We have Adrian (me!) from ipickmynose, Christian and Ben from The Bay Bridged, Emily and Avery from the Deli SF, Will from New & Used Records and Oz from HearYa. Not all the music bloggers could make it, but we have a decent crew going.

I’ll be live-blogging the game so check back in and hit refresh to catch all the excitement! Bonds is one away from tying Aaron’s home run record, so maybe it’ll be historic.

6:05pm first pitch. foul

7:10pm bonds struck out and he fouled out in his first two at bats.

7:15pm they’re playing ‘young folks’. you can’t away from that song.

7:16pm also american analog set. wow!

7:46 and now ‘pour some sugar on me’! they’re all over the place with the music.

7:48pm barry’s up. the cameras are going nuts! the count’s 3-1. he walked. everyone’s boohing

8:12pm the wave! I love the wave. wooooo.

8:16pm bonds is up again. again with the cameras. he’s twice the size of any of any other player. he pops up right to the catcher on the first pitch.

8:18pm everyone’s making fun/ jealous of me for blogging right now. that’s right: I’m a pariah in a group of bloggers. new low.

8:26pm it’s a sold out game. 43,001. Christian claims he’s the one over 43k. I do not believe him.

8:39pm longest kiss cam of all time. one guy coopted the camera and smooched another guy.

8:42pm Will is working on a sitcom. Very cool.

8:43pm fog is pouring over the edge of the stadium.

8:47pm they’re showing the ‘rally pumpkin’ on the jumbotron. what do pumpkins have to do with rallies?

8:53pm Sweeney’s in to pinch hit. this guy a couple rows down is the world’s biggest sweeney fan.

8:56pm dave roberts is still really fast, scoring on a double from second to tie the game 3-3 in the bottom of the 9th.

9:04pm come from behind win on durham’s rbi single. pretty exciting. 4-3 giants final score. maybe rally pumpkins really do work.

9:28pm leaving, I see a guy with a giants jersey that has “DMB” 44 on the back. who likes Dave Matthews Band and the Giants that much?

  1. I feel left out…

    I was totally baffled by the DMB shirt, as well. Other than that though – fantastic game and good company. Thanks again for putting it together.

  3. Emily says:

    Someone wrote on N&UR that we should have worn matching T-Shirts. I think we should do that at the museum. ;)

  4. adrian says:

    Emily. Sounds like a plan. Perhaps the matching shirts should be ipickmynose/ adrian is rad shirts!

    (I would say that I’m horribly shameless, but–don’t worry–I plug myself with shame.)

  5. […] I went to see Barry Bonds make history last weekend with a group of other bay area bloggers including Christian and Ben from The Bay Bridged, Avery and Emily from the Deli SF and Will from New and Used Records. Barry didn’t go yard, but I was able to see his huge steroid head without binoculars from our seats in the upper deck. […]

  6. […] the second year, some of the local music bloggers are getting together at a ballgame to hang (read: nerd) […]
