Giants trophy at Lytton Plaza or nearby San Mateo

Say Hey Sid Espinosa in his heyday at Lytton Plaza, 2011

The San Francisco Giants baseball team, World Champions, are touring the area with their famous trophy. In 2011, I saw the trophy at Lytton Plaza, but did not wait in line for a real photo, just some shots from afar, and I soaked up the atmosphere. (I had been tracking use of Lytton Plaza, which is part of our parks system and not an asset of the Palo Alto Downtown Business Improvement District despite the chatter you hear at their meetings, or in their paper trail).

But so far it looks like the trophy will be at San Mateo Elks Lodge but not here. What gives? Were we outbid? Did this fall thru the cracks? Did we book a Jacko tribute act for an exclusive six-week run?

That I caught so to speak Tim Lincecum’s no-no makes everything else gravy, but it is a curiosity about this event.

Meanwhile and more immediately, who from the official PA brass will be at the Stanford bowl game?

Also, were we involved in the Olympics planning at EA recently?

I think there are more pressing matters but it is an interesting litmus test about our regional role.
