BEAT LA !!!

The mantra of diehard San Francisco Giants fans when attending a baseball game with our archrivals the Los Angeles Dodgers. We usually try to get to at least one Dodgers game a year; they're always fun with a rowdy sellout crowd. This day we did BEAT LA in the last inning; in fact I think the Giants swept the Dodgers in this series.

 

The Giants-Dodgers rivalry is the longest-standing and one of the most storied rivalries in the history of baseball. read about in in wikipedia: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dodgers%E2%80%93Giants_rivalry

 

The team to beat in the league right now is the San Diego Padres; they are 2.5 games ahead of the Giants (who are now in 2nd place). Padres are coming to town today, so we'll be chanting BEAT San Diego !

    Great series, and we beat them in probably every other category imaginable except for population and traffic congestion.

    Great shots , all of them Jill. I cannot imagine sitting in the blazing sun watching a bunch of grown men hitting a little ball then running away from everyone because they want to hit you with the ball to pay you back for hurting it... least that is what I think the game is all about???? LOL

    and yes that is my little kitchen stool I use it for sitting and taking pictures. The old knees are not very good at kneeling for long periods of time anymore.
