Star Wars baseball for my 34th birthday

I turned 34 this year. 33 was a good year, full of accomplishments and exciting travel. MJ made sure 34 began well too.

On my actual birthday we were both slammed with work, but we were able to meet for dinner down on the peninsula at The Melting Pot in San Mateo. It’s actually at the Caltrain station, so it’s easy for me to get to and, cool, a train station. Plus, fondue is awesome.

The big present for my birthday was the weekend following my birthday. MJ bought us a package of tickets to Star Wars day at the Giant’s AT&T Park! You arrive 3 hours before the game to eat, drink and mingle with other fans at the edge of the field. I got pictures taken with folks who went all out with getting dressed up, and with R2-D2.

The gathering then had a raffle and we were walked along the edge of the field to get to our seats.

And amazing seats they were! The weather also played it’s typically agreeable role and gave us a sunny and slightly breezy afternoon. Perfect for a game.

The game itself was Star Wars themed throughout. With Darth Vader and Storm Troopers accompanying the entrance of the umpires (empire, umpire, haha!), videos throughout the game, and Chewbacca bobble heads, of which we each got two since a special MVP version was also given to us during the welcoming gathering we went to.

And to make things even better, the Giant’s won over the Rockies 2-3.
