I walked to the ballpark this afternoon curious to see the excitement surrounding the San Francisco Giants. They are one game away from making it to the world series. Rain began to fall but it did not dampen the mood on the street. The bars were full and people were transfixed to the television screen. Many were still milling outside the stadium even after the game started. Sadly, the team lost to the Phillies 4-2. I'm crossing my fingers hoping they can win the next game in Philadelphia.
