Can I listen to the game online? Knbr doesn't stream it right
Another year of the Giants being the home opener for the Dodgers, opening the door for another Stow incident. Nice going MLB!

So the Brian Stow situation can only happen on opening day?

It could happen on other days, but I think Opening Day represents a greater chance. 56k (which the Dodgers normally don't have at their games), high levels of drinking, lots of anticipation of the season starting and hatred/jealousy towards the Giants all were magnified by that Opening Day imo.

Not that the stadium environment there is great ANY time, but it was probably especially bad that game.

And some of what I'm saying is natural bitterness that the Giants didn't get to start at home and also being sick of being the Dodgers home opener game in front of their drunken charged up opening day crowd.

The security will be everywhere this time. It wont be an issue.

That one incident shouldnt then prevent any future Giants/Dodgers opening day games.

Btw, the Giants request to open on the road every year. They want to push the home opener a little farther back due to SF weather issues. Theyve opened on the road in 10 of 14 seasons since 2000.

Wow, nice collection. Are those all New Era?

I just got myself a new orange rim SF the other day. Old one was getting way too dirty.

Yeah, all New Era 59/50, all un-worn.

I bought them over time specifically for the wall.

49ers/Raiders preseason and regular season games were just as ugly.
