I recently ventured down to San Diego. There were a few reasons for this, but the underlying one was to go to a Padres vs. Giants game.
|Yes, that overcast city is San Diego. It was raining half the time I was there.|
Petco Park is maaaaaybe a little bit smaller than AT&T? It felt smaller, although I know that the fields used to be a similar size (they brought in the fences recently, but that doesn't change the boundaries of the park). Anyway, we entered the ballpark on the complete opposite side of the stadium from our seats, and it didn't take too long to find our section--whereas I feel it takes forever to travel around AT&T.
|Tickets that don't have Giants players on them look so weird|
Our seats were AMAZING--I was so close to the field!
|Row thirteen! It's so close!|
|Hello, lovely Giants players|
|Me. First base is behind my head.|
Also, there were quite a few Giants fans around with the Padres fans. Did it feel like a home game? I don't think so, but it didn't feel like how I imagined an away game would feel.
|The Padres fans were pretty friendly, too.|
|Me and the Padre.|
(The Giants lost. Hence the lack of discussion about the actual game.)
