McCovey Cove was . . . crowded

Oct 28, 2010, 11:01 AM EDT

My favorite pic from last night's game that did not involve Vlad Guerrero stumbling around like my Uncle Harry.

At some point, you figure one of these people would have rowed their little boat out there and realized “man, even if someone does hit a ball out here, I ain’t gettin’ it,” and then rowed the hell back home to watch the game in comfort.  Oh well.

    Entrepreneurial idea:
    Buy 30 30-packs of beer, load up a boat and hit the Cove. $2.50 for a can of beer. You’d net easily $2000 a night.
    Which I suppose would pay your bail money for operating without a liquor license if you get caught… but still, its an idea.

      Wait, you don’t already have 30 30-packs of beer on hand? Tsk tsk.

        I actually don’t drink beer much any more. I’m a Jack Daniels or Johnnie Walker guy.

        Give Bulleit bourbon a try. Besides, JD is distilled in the wrong state.

      Dude, ameratureish of you BC. When you need to land a gig like that, you bring a pocket full of stones. Sell your “pet rocks” for 3$ a pop, and you get a free beer with your purchase. Yeah, i thought 2.50 was too cheap…

    Really doesn’t look any more crowded than I remember it looking when Barry was chasing Hank. Maybe I’m misremembering, though.

    How about this shot during the home run derby in SF a few years back…

      I remember thinking back then that it must’ve pissed off the kayakers that that enormous inflated baseball was taking up so much prime ball-catching real estate.

    Men in close confines, not in any hurry to leave…..chasing theoretical balls…..yep, its San Fran

    Does anyone know if you boat into McCovey, is there a place to use the bathroom? 30 beers is alot to hold in until after the game…
