Oakland A’s Game 162
As someone who goes to sporting events for a living, I’ve seen a lot of amazing events in my time, but the Oakland Athletics improbable victory of the Texas Rangers on the last day of the season to win the American League West title, was one of the most exciting ones yet. There are very few sports teams that I care about on an emotional level, but the A’s are definitely one of them, I admit, so I’m sure that added to the experience. Both the crowd and the team was fired up on one of the more beautiful days of the year so far. It’s always a bonus when you cover and root for a team and they reward you with a day like this. Hopefully there will be even more meaningful games to come in the upcoming playoffs, but regardless of what happens, the Athletics surprised a lot of people this year and accomplished a lot.
