I think maybe the Giants organization got the wrong message when I complained about the season ticket holder "bonus" item last year.
Last year it was a cardboard tray case... Yeah. A box. In years past, it was a timbuk2 bag, or a scarf or a soft cooler... you know... something that you could use to smuggle booze into the park... something you could show to the security guard and say "season ticket holder" so that they would not search your bag.
It's an unwritten rule that if you use the marina gate, and you have a season ticket holder thingy, they don't search your bag* But these boxes don't facilitate that at all. They just sit on your shrine/alter/desk/dresser/whatever, and hold your season tickets. Which is fine... I guess its a good place to throw the seasons pins and gack into. But seriously, I'd prefer to have a Giants branded bike messenger bag or something.
When I complained about the cardboard tray-case last year, I wasn't actually complaining about the fact that it was made of cardboard. Because nothing says organizational class like Balsa wood.
*Actually, I just made that up. But I like to tell gate security about my fake rule and see what their reactions are. Usually the reaction is to strip search me.
