Go Tigers…oh wait, too late now?

I had the GREAT privilege to attend Game 3 of the World Series (Detroit Tigers vs San Francisco Giants), two weekends ago. It was a surprise gift from my boyfriend for my birthday the following weekend.

He couldn’t have picked a better gift – as many of you know, I am a huge baseball fan, and he is probably the sweetest boyfriend in the world too. Oh, and Zooey Deschanel sang the anthem, who I love!

What an amazing game – who knew “standing room only” meant that we could stand about 20 rows behind home plate (as seen in one of the pics below). The entire evening, I was wondering why the people in front of me spend so much more cash money for seats, when all they did was stand?!

So the game did not turn out so well for Detroit in the end, but I must admit, I have a secret crush on the Giants.

What a lucky girl, to see 2 of her favorite teams? …..whoops, does this slip mean I might not be such a great Toronto Blue Jays fan after all?

Escape TO Alcatraz

I am loving this new show Alcatraz by J.J. Abrams.

It is quite disturbing at many points, but still, I am liking it.

Partly because I love San Francisco, partly because it is filmed in one of my favorite places, Vancouver, partly because the actors actually seem good, and partly because I need to find a tv show I actually like and so far, all I have is Modern Family. Why should I be paying for satellite?

I hear that it is quite like the show Lost, but unfortunately/fortunately I have never seen it. EVEN though it was filmed on Kauai, Hawaii.

The show airs Monday nights at 9pm on Fox and last nights episode got me just a little more hooked.

I went to San Francisco a few years ago, me thinks in 2009, and here are some of the highlights in picture form:

The Pier

Some bridge that's apparently famous (*sarcasm)

Seals hangin on Pier 39

Lombard Street - Windiest road!

MOMA

Most awesome roads with the most awesome Segway riders in yellow

My future home - hope it's earthquake proof!

Go Giants Go!

Booooo

The city of violence

Alcatraz!

Alcatraz, again!
