Tim Lincecum

1-0 when wearing Lincecum T-shirt

Oh man, that was the best Giants game I've ever been to.

There's highlights on Sportsnet Central and I'm getting all pumped up again, especially with all the footage of Timmy screaming and pointing, "Fuck you! Fuck you!" ♥ I'm generally pretty tolerant of bad calls, but that was some bullshit there that cost Timmy the win. But at the same time, if the Giants hadn't struck out swinging 43820805702803 times with runners on base, that one run probably wouldn't have mattered. :P

I only got tickets for this game because my friend from Singapore was in SF for a couple of days (she's a stewardess for Singapore Airlines) and I thought it would be fun to take her to a baseball game, since they're super American. She's probably spoiled for life now. Final game of a Dodgers/Giants series with the Giants having lost the first two games at home, Lincecum starting, benches-clearing "brawl" (I just can't take baseball brawls seriously, LOLOL) Timmy giving up the tying run in the 9th, then Uribe with the walk off homer in the 10th.

We had good seats too, center field bleachers row 00, i.e. right next to the field. But we also walked around the park and watched from behind different seats. I had actually wanted to get lower box seats but they were so expensive because it's a Dodgers game, and they would have been better for my friend so she could have seen everything, but she had a lot of fun anyway. We went to Thirsty Bear for tapas but they wouldn't serve her beer because she didn't bring her passport (for ID) with her. :( We're way too fucking old to still be carded, damn it!

I love Timmy so much. I even love Brian Wilson a little bit. Argh.
