Pictures from a happier, simpler time (game one / Thursday)

Photos from game one vs. Atlanta:

I'm not a high five guy.

Unless I'm playing (which hasn't happened since high school) or trying to get the insider's deal at a car dealership, it seems a bit silly to me to give someone a high five because I didn't do anything- the team I root for did.

However, I must have received about 30 high fives from people streaming out of AT&T Park after Thursday's game, and you know what?  It was pretty damn awesome.

I drove 320 miles (round trip) just to take pictures and hang out around AT&T Park while listening to the radio broadcast, and it was one of the best game experiences I've ever had.

I drove to Pleasanton, took BART into SF, walked from the Embarcadero to AT&T, watched the live broadcast of Chronicle Live, caught a free t-shirt thanks to my pal Mychael Urban, watched the first three innings from the opening in right field, grabbed a bite to eat at Amici's (where I heard 43,000 people going nuts from inside the restaurant during Buster Posey's double/triple), listened to the 7th and 8th innings out near the Willie McCovey statue, and listened to the 9th inning while I set up my tripod in the intersection of King and 3rd street and warmed up my high fivin' hand.

Perfect day.
