My First Giants Game


I've been following the Giants for all of my 18 years of life (or as long as I can remember). I remember thinking that Barry Bonds was always going to play for the Giants for ever and ever and never get old. I remember thinking that John Dowd was a real player (yep, that's how young I was). I remember watching the 2002 World Series, vaguely, and how upset I was when the Giants lost, compounded on the fact that I was already torn up about Robert Horry and the dagger he stabbed in all Kings fans' hearts on that fateful day. I may not have gone through all of the struggles that most older Giants fans have, but I've followed them as much as I possibly can.

After all of my time as a fan, I have never once been to a Giants game. And by "Giants game" I mean anywhere that the Giants have played baseball, or whatever other sport they seem to enjoy playing at times. I have been to baseball games, I have seen the White Sox play (being a Chicago kid). Today, I can say that I have officially bought my first ticket to a Giants game, and I thought I would commemorate that with my first McCovey Chronicles FanPost.

I will attend the March 25th game in Phoenix, and even though it is a spring training game, I think I'll remember it as my first true Giants game. In the beginning of the 2010 season, my dad bought me a Buster Posey authentic jersey (which I will be wearing in my grave), and I am hoping that I can get it signed by at least a few people. Namely, the man himself. I would also like to at least meet Lincecum, Cain, Bumgarner, Sandoval, and Romo. Of course, I would be happy to meet any one of them, or any Giants player for that matter. I feel like this is going to be a very important year for the future of this franchise. Seeing how we have players that, if used correctly, can build something in San Francisco that will make this a dominant franchise for a very long time.

Honestly, I don't know what to expect in this game, I'm going to be getting there a few hours early to have a chance of seeing some of the players, and getting my jersey signed, but overall I'm just excited and a little bit anxious to see my favorite team play for the first time.

Do any of you guys on McCovey Chronicles have any tips of the trade for me for my first game?
