For many San Francisco Bay Area sports fan, tomorrow (October 27th, 2010) will be one of the most anticipated days in a long time. The main attraction will the San Francisco Giants as they play game 1 of the World Series against the Texas Rangers at AT&T Park in San Francisco at 5 PM. For another subset of fans, the Golden State Warriors will open their season against the Houston Rockets at Oracle Arena at 7:30 PM. Almost as an afterthought, the San Jost Sharks (who already started their season a couple of weeks ago) will be playing at home against the New Jersey Devils.
I am admittedly not one of the biggest baseball fans though I followed the Giants throughout the season and was riveted throughout September into the playoffs and now the World Series. Yet, I am also a huge basketball fan. Like many Warriors fans, I am happy that the Chris Cohan / Don Nelson era has closed. While my expectations are low for the Warriors this season, I am eager to see how the team will do under new coach Keith Smart.
As for the Sharks, I throughly enjoyed their playoff run last season and will follow them a lot this season, thought for tomorrow night, they are going to be shoved to the background.
It's gonna be hard to focus on work tomorrow but I will do my best. Go Giants, Warriors and Sharks!
