If Only Dreams Came True

Last night I had an awesome dream. Well, maybe I should back up a bit to provide a little bit of context.

The San Francisco Giants are coming to Seattle in June!!! I am beyond excited. Considering the last Giants game I went to was the day Matt proposed, it's been way too long since I've seen them play in person. Don't get me wrong, I watch them on TV every time they're on (which sadly isn't often when you don't live in the San Francisco media market), watch games online and follow the team on Twitter/Facebook (in addition to a couple of beat writers)...but it's not the same as being in the park, rooting for your team as they play.

I've also been to several Mariner's games since we moved up here, but it's not the same. I mean, I'll root for the Mariner's and I like them and all, but they aren't my team. I'm not emotionally invested in their wins and losses. Even if their games are close, it's nowhere near Giants torture.

So, the Giants are coming to Seattle for three days in June. I really want to go to all three games; I WILL be there for at least two of them. I'm already counting down the days with a paper chain I made a couple of weeks ago (below). Current total? 185 days! 

Anyway, back to my dream. Last night, I dreamt that one of Matt's customers worked at the airport, in the section where athletes flew in and out, so he got us in to meet the Giants! We got front row seats for the game, too! It was pretty awesome. Sadly I woke up and realized it wasn't true, but it was still a really fun dream. Who knows, maybe sometime in the next 185 days one of us will meet someone that would make it happen?


  1. I note that your paper chain is (as expected) orange and black.

  2. Yep! The only ones that aren't black or orange are for special occasions (green and red for Christmas, stars for Matt's birthday, etc)
