Hi Jay,

I was actually sitting on the second level about where that camera was pointed for that picture. A couple of observations: That was the quickest game I've ever been to. Just to give you an idea, at about the 7th inning, I went to get a bite to eat, sat back down to eat during the top of the 8th, and the game was over 5 minutes later. I got sick from eating too fast! Another observation: A lot of Giants fans there! That made me happy. How many do you think there were? I'm thinking about 4,000, but I could be wrong. I'm just glad I wore my Giants gear, because I was not sure after what happened to Bryan Stowe. I kept telling myself that baseball is a more civilized sport, and I guess I was right...

Thanks for sharing Kevin.

I’ve gone to BP each year. Bonds always drew an energetic crowd, but this year was also remarkable. Like you say, it’s fun to check out all the different Giants fans wearing their gear and support.

And right, the game was quick – I got home about 30 minutes before what the better half expected.

About 4,000 sounds right. A few I talked to came from SF and Sacramento.

Just terrible what happened to Stow. I hope he can recover. What a moment when he returns to the Giants family.

How did you become a Giants fan? How far did you travel to get to the game?

Go Giants!!
