A stands for Athletics

I got to experience my 8th (count them, 8) major league baseball stadium on Friday. And I'm not even a real fan, it's ridiculous.

The McAfee Coliseum, home of the Oakland Athletics. The A's won, beating Jaja's Kansas City Royals 13-2 (oooooooooooo!). The fan turnout was pathetic, but the enthusiasm of the fans that were present was overwhelming. I would put A's fans up there with Phillies fans in the "don't mess" category.

Here's where I've been (I like lists):
  • Shea Stadium (New York Mets)
  • Fenway Park (Boston Red Sox)
  • Busch Stadium (St. Louis Cardinals)
  • Three Rivers Stadium (Pittsburgh Pirates)
  • Citizens Bank Park (Philadelphia Phillies)
  • AT&T Park (San Francisco Giants)
  • Yankee Stadium (New York Yankees)
  • McAfee Coliseum (Oakland Athletics)
I leave for Nevada tomorrow, and I will try to post, but the internet connection in the trailer can't be trusted. We'll see what happens.

Ah, there's nothing like a summertime game at Fenway. A true "oldie but goodie" if ever there was one.
