This week I have been traveling in San Francisco. For the most part I have been stuck in meetings all day meaning I have seen very little of the city. I seem to be going to San Francisco more frequently but my trips never seem to come at a time where the Diamondbacks are playing the Giants. I desperately want to see a game at Pac Bell/SBC/AT&T Park so this lack of planning has been very frustrating to me. I also seem to always be in San Francisco whenever there is fog. I have not determined whether it is always foggy in the bay area or just during times when I am here. It doesn’t seem to matter what time of year it is, it is always foggy. Being from Arizona, I am not accustomed to packing where temperatures are below 50 or where there is rain. For days before my trip I am running around the house looking for jackets, sweatshirts, or anything to keep me warm and dry. Luckily I have Diamondbacks sweatshirts, hats, and jackets so even during inclement weather I can still support the team. This is important as I am always acting as baseball evangelist for the Diamondbacks. It’s amazing the conversations that start up when you are wearing team apparel, especially when traveling to a National League Western Division town.
