Ok, I know its super late, but I have to post this. Also, my New Years Resolution will be to post something everyday.
So yea, I was at Game 1 of the World Series!! I have to thank my brother, Ben, for talking me into it. I didn’t actually decide to go until 12pm on game day. There were a few reasons why it took me a long time decide whether or not to go: (1) Tix were $350, (2) we were facing Justin Verlander, (3) I was already at work in San Jose, and (4) TIX WERE $350!!! It took a while for me to finally decide, but I’m glad that I made the decision to go to my first ever World Series. For those of you who didn’t watch Game 1 of the World Series, our 3rd baseman (Pablo Sandoval) had a historic game, hitting 3 homeruns, 2 of which were off of THEE Justin Verlander! Pablo was only the 4th player to hit 3 HRs in the World Series; the other 3 were Babe Ruth, Reggie Jackson, and Albert Pujols. Going into the series, the SFGiants weren’t getting much respect, especially because they were facing probably the most dominating pitcher in the league in Verlander. So to jump on the Tigers and the best pitcher in Game 1, and eventually winning 8-3, was a great accomplishment, and I’m so glad that I was a part of it all.
