There are a couple of exceptions, but just a couple.

I'm not much of a FanFest guy, but that's because of my crippling fear of crowds and people and getting touched by people in crowds. That doesn't mean that I don't get jealous of the people who don't mind the teeming masses, considering it all sounds really fun. And I'm not sure if the list of players is always this good and I haven't been paying attention, but this sure looks like a whole mess of Giants.

The list of players, announcers, and coaches who are going to be at the KNBR FanFest on Saturday, February 13 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.:

The only notable omissions are Angel Pagan and Jeff Samardzija. That's still a list of 41 players, coaches, and announcers, which sure seems like an awful lot. You won't have time to meet them all -- it's like a Coachella lineup, and you'll have to sprint a lot -- but I'm sure you can figure out a solid game plan to maximize your afternoon. Unless you just spend four hours waiting in line for Buster Posey and/or Madison Bumgarner, which is also a reasonable strategy.

Admission is free, as usual, and there will be Q&A sessions, photo opportunities with the three trophies, and several chances to buy food and tickets and merchandise and food.

Let me know how it is! I will be home alone, with the curtains drawn, just like I like it.
