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.

That game was epic.
I loved watching Timmy getting so pissed at the calls, and most of the calls were really, really bad. Especially the one in the 9th inning.

It was CRAZY.

Oh man, that was the first time I ever booed a call at the game, it was so bad. I could understand where he was like "What the hell? Come on!" on the field, but I was really shocked by him screaming "Fuck you!" and pointing from the dugout. Like... was that directed at an ump? It just seemed kind of extreme.

dude baseball games are so American, did you make her have a hot dog?

I totally did!!! With ketchup and mustard and relish. AND we had hot fudge sundaes too. The weather was perfect too, warm and sunny. *siiiiigh* :)

I haven't seen the highlights of that yet, but baseball brawls are the BEST. So awkward, so hilarious, so much the opposite of everything that the word "fight" calls to mind! <333

Oh man, this was pathetic, even for a baseball brawl. No punches thrown even, just a little bit of shoving and lots of sheepish standing around. And then like 5 minutes later everyone was back in their dugouts, dangling their arms over the railing again. There was so much more aggression in Timmy's yelling, hahaha.
