Hi lovelies! I hope that you all had a great weekend. I know this weekend was hard for a lot of people out there due to the 10 year anniversary of 9/11. My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone who was and is affected by that terrible tragedy.
As I mentioned, I went to my very first Giant’s Game on Friday! Right after work, I met up with the girls and we all headed over to Pete’s Tavern for some pre-game drinks! For a refreshing drink my friend suggested we order a John Daly- a combination of sweet tea vodka and lemonade. These were delicious and the perfect start to the evening.
Then when it got close to game time, we headed over to AT&T Park. It was definitely a cold night in San Francisco and I, after much debate (I brought 3 coats to work to choose from) ended up in my wool peacoat which ended up being the perfect decision as it kept me warm all night. As we headed up the ramps, excited for this experience, I knew it was going to be a good night. But what I didn’t know was what a gorgeous view there is from the ballpark.
Before heading inside to the game (which had already started… oops) we decided that we needed to get some dinner. As we walked through the stands I began to realize that deciding what to eat was not going to be so easy. I passed lots of french fries, hotdogs and hamburgers but could not find anything that seemed remotely healthy. Then at one stand I spotted it, a lone garden burger. After standing in line I was served a veggie patty on a bun with the smallest piece of iceberg lettuce I have ever seen. Definitely unlike the last veggie burger I had but after I covered it in bbq sauce it was actually pretty decent. But it got me thinking about the lack of healthy options at sporting events. Although I understand that people want to eat the traditional “game” food, I think there are a lot of people out there that would prefer the healthier options and it would be nice if they catered to that as well.
Then it was time to head into the game. I have to admit, the amount of time that I spent actually watching the game was pretty minimal. But it was so fun to be in the stands with so many others enjoying a chilly night in San Francisco. Between balancing our food and drinks on our seats to chatting to all of our friends around us, it was just the perfect experience. And as for the game? Well, we lost, but the night couldn’t have been better with my girls.
-Have you noticed the lack of healthy options at sporting events? Where else do you find this problem?
