Great, great time…

Well folks, just finished another exciting day of streaming All-Star festivities. However, unlike previous days, this one marks the end of my "Big, Fat, Baseball Adventure." I can tell you, though, that this has been one of the most amazing experiences of my life. From meeting former Giant great Will Clark (one of my heroes) to racing my son Travis down the Coke slide at AT&T Park, to actually having the American League team come within a hair’s breath of me this afternoon, the last six days have been ones I’ll never forget.

However, what has truly made this a unique and wonderful experience is the fact that I was able to bring all of this to you! As you all know, by watching and chatting with me, you were taking part in the world’s first Fancast, and that’s just awesome. I want to thank all of you out there who have been watching, especially those who I had a chance to meet in the chat room. It’s because of you folks that I think we managed to build a community even in just a matter of days. I actually had the opportunity to meet some of you in person which was really cool.

I also want to send out a very special thanks to the good folks at MLB.com who made this all possible.

Let me add that while I’ve always loved baseball, this experience has made me appreciate the game – and its fans – that much more.

Anyway, I better get back to the game so I’m going to sign off. However, before I do, I’ll leave you with a few nuggets below from today’s pre-game festivities.

Thanks to all of you again and be well!
