I was just at the game in San Diego when he tied the record. From my observations, I was the only person in my vicinity that stayed seated when the hit was made. The Padres (my team) won fortunately. :cheers:

I'm sorry to hear that, Steve. ;)

PS Hey, did you guys ever get any furniture in your house? I heard you all were sitting on the floors over there. :rolleyes:

Some of the furniture took 5 months after it was ordered. It is all in place now. :hurray:

Good. We'll have to come visit and 'set a spell' ;)

BTW, while we were chatting, it looks like Bonds broke the record last night.

He couldn't wait for us to go to tomorrow's game.

Ah well . . . it is baseball, after all.

We'll have a blast. There may even be a few hundred thousand less people. :)

Lol. Have a good time tomorrow.

And Bonds is ridiculously talented regardless of what he injected into his a$$. He was facing pitchers on steroids and competing with other hitters who were doing the same things he was, but they still didn't put up numbers anywhere near his.

Went. Had a great time, even though the Giants lost.

Considering getting season tickets (next season will be a great time to ink a long term contract-- the Giants will probably lose Bonds and they have the worst record in baseball right now-- s0 getting season tix is the perfect example of "buying when the market is down"-- gal at fan services told us we'd have a great selection, and that staff would take us around the park on a no-game day to show us all the seats (pretty cool).

Bonnie, my wife's mom, passed soon after we met. She was a huge Giant's fan (her ashes are even scattered in McCovey Cove, where all the "out of the park" homers go).

Going to games is something my wife treasures, and we're having fun taking our daughter.

So season tix, while most definitely a "doo-dad", are a good family activity.

Plus, if we did it, we'd expense them through the Inn, and give tix to staff as perqs. :)

That sounds pretty sweet! You should by some season tix to McCovey Cove! Lol...you'd be bound to catch a HR eventually. Any idea what they'd run you? Yankees' season tix are one of the first doodads on my list once I'm on the fast track!
