OK, for the first post back, I decided to ease myself back slowly so I wouldn't pull a creative muscle (not with the kids in the house anyway). A few weeks back, I went to an Oakland A's-New York Yankees game. The beauty of travelling to glorious Oakland CA is really quite something.



There's A's fans, there's Yankee fans....but mostly a lot of beer fans.



The people of Oakland, my birthplace(historical birthplace plaque pending), are often expressive. This upstanding young gentleman decided he was so excited by the sporting even that he's dance on top of his buddy's car for the viewing pleasure of the parking lot traffic.



BART, or Bay Area Rapid Transit, has a station outside the stadium for those looking to exit quickly and without the headaches of congestion. Those people are still there. This isn't even a photo, its a real-time video.



The bird gangs in Oakland are scary. Following the game, SWARMS of these flying rats attack everything even remotely resembling food orfood packaging. I REALLY shouldn't have worn my In N Out Burger cologne. These animals will NEVER become extinct. Ever.

I just wanna know if the dancing car dude's drawers finally fell completely off during the course of his dance.

Blogger PapaCool commented at 6:25 AM~
