Great game today, even if it should have been a blowout. Here's a few notable things for me:
- Good to see the boss at the game, hope he's doing alright
- Nice ovation (including from me) for Matsui during the ring ceremony and lineup call. But I don't get the cheering when he came up at bat, I was the only guy in my section booing him batting for the other team!
- Player announcements now say the player number twice. I don't like it, and it sounds bad when each player calls it out on the scoreboard at the beginning of the game
- Is it just me or are there a ton more in-game seat upgrade contests this year? I counted at least half a dozen, they must have a lot of no-shows in the field seats
- New championship flags on the top are kind of lame. Very small and wimpy, they can do better than that!
