Giants vs. Brewers at AT&T Park

Saturday night, we went to the Giants vs. Brewers game! It's like a show, going to see the Giants. The players have theme songs when they come up to bat, and it's always so much fun to watch them play.
AT&T Park. It's such a great ballpark.
All four of us were decked out in our Giants gear. It was country western night, and we all got Giants belt buckles. They are pretty darn good belt buckles too!
We had total nosebleed seats, on the 3rd deck, second to the very last row. It was an awesome view of the ballpark and the bay though. That's McCovey Cove up there, and you can just make out the "Splash" camera. That camera catches homeruns which are hit out of the park, and into the water. Barry Bonds use to do that a lot, and that's where the name came from.
That's the Bay Bridge back there, behind the Coke bottle slide. It's actually two parts, the part that's like the Golden Gate Bridge (but not dark orange), and the flatter part behind the island.
All of the Giants home games are pretty much sold out. We bought our tickets on Stubhub, and they were probably somebody's season ticket seats that they weren't using.
We got a view of downtown too! You can just see the point of the Transamerica Pyramid.
2010 World Champions!!!!
The Giants were ahead, by two, at the top of the 9th, so it was time for the closer. Fear the Beard. Brian Wilson.
Brian Wilson only threw 5 pitches, before the game ended!

Giants won, 4-2!!
