104 Year-Old Woman Attends First Giants Game

Posted By on Thu, Jul 31, 2014 at 7:04 AM

Just a week after we heard about the local teen who got his long-time wish granted, when he rode BART for the first time, another adorable news bulletin came over the transom.

A 104 year-old woman attended her first Giants game Wednesday at AT&T Park, and consumed her first platter of garlic fries, according to a tweet from KTVU reporter Fred Inglis. Captured on a grainy stadium monitor, she appears to be decked out in Giants paraphernalia, partaking in all the timeworn traditions of America's favorite pastime.

It seems she picked a good day to go. After a rough middle stretch, the Giants beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 7-5 , which suggests they may win again in this woman's lifetime.

Not to mention the woman got to see something that may have never happened before: a double play via a walk

But try explaining that to a 104 year-old rookie.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
