Another year, another successful meeting up of the Grantheads. This Tuesday night in August wasn't quite as memorable a game as last year's get-together, when some guy named Barry hit #756. On the other hand, it's not every day that the opposing pitcher is one Pablo Sandoval double away from throwing a controversial official scorer's decision one-hitter. Well, actually it is almost every day that the opposing pitcher shuts down the Giants offense.
But forget the 6-0 loss, the Manny Burriss dropped ball, or the John Baker cheering section that sailed in from Alameda. We had fun! A group of nice, funny, friendly McCoven gathered at Zeke's for drinks, talk and laughs. Then we headed to the ballpark and took our respective seats. Goofus even appeared on TV, apparently. I enjoyed seeing a bunch of the McCoven yet again, and meeting Baron, Jponry and others for the first time. It was a fun night.
Here are some pics.
