The Giants are going to limit access to McCovey Cove for the All-Star Game. No motorized boats and no watercraft longer than 20 feet at all. I can understand the reasoning behind it, but you'd have to think there are more than a couple of folks who just had their plans go up in bureaucratic smoke.
My favorite part of the article, which described press reaction to two media boats that have been arranged for interested reporters:
"Most of the media appreciate this," Daum said. "They didn't know how to charter their own boats."I knew a guy who majored in Boat Chartering at M.I.T., so I understand where they're coming from. You can't leave that kind of fact-finding and research in the hands of people who do fact-finding and research for a living.
