Fans were lined up early to get a chance to peer through the "knot hole".
McCovey Cove was electric!
It was one big party!
(I didn't notice until I uploaded this image the name of the boat, Lazy Dolphin!)
McCovey Cove, named after Hall of Famer Willie "Stretch" McCovey, is where left-handed power hitters hit the ball out of the park to get what's called a splash hit home run.
And then it's a race to retrieve the prized momento!
The rally pumpkin!
We took a lap around the ballpark before taking our seats. The energy was palpable.
Standing room only Sky Bar
Fans getting provisions.
Too cute for words!
We had amazing seats behind the visitors dugout.
Turned out we were also adjacent to a section of Texas Ranger fans.
The opening ceremony was very emotional for me as they introduced Juan Marishal, Gaylord Perry and Willie McCovey who I grew up watching as a kid! Every Christmas our parents would surprise us with opening day tickets and these guys were some of the greats we loved!
After the introductions & National Anthem there were fireworks and a fly over!
I had chills!
You couldn't have asked for a more beautiful evening!
We were one big happy family of Giants fans collectively in the moment...
After the 5th inning it was all but impossible to stop dancing and waving our pom poms!
And at the end of it all, I couldn't help myself...
I just had to snap this photo of the group of Ranger fans sitting next to us.
I want to thank my husband's amazing boss for surprising us with tickets to the first game of The World Series and for the memory of a lifetime!
Game 2 tonight! GO GIANTS!

I am a passionate treasure huntress addicted to "the thrill of the hunt." I pride myself on finding unique items and have spent a lifetime collecting unusual and interesting "treasures" which I have used in decorating our home. I shop with an eye for design and look for pieces that I like to call the "jewelry" of the room. Those pieces that have been around accumulating energy thereby bringing life into a space by telling its story or evoking a memory. The allure is found in the details of its journey... condition, provenance and patina. Our collected "treasures" tell the story of who we are. Billy Baldwin said it best, "Decorating is never successful unless it is personal." My treasures are available for purchase in my Etsy Shop and on my companion blog, Shop La Dolfina. The links can be accessed from my sidebar.
"All of life is about energy. It's about the energy that you're putting out; energy that you're drawing to yourself, every day, based on the way you think about your life & the actions that you take. Everybody is an energy field. And because of your attitude, your thinking, your actions; who you choose to be in the world, forms your own field. You are drawing into your field people who are like you... to remind you, to show you, to reflect back to you- who you are. Believe that or not, that is what is happening all the time... and it does not require your belief. It just is. It. Just. Is." -Oprah
