Random thoughts while enjoying the Sippy Cups

A band called the Sippy Cups is warming up on top of the Dodgers dugout, apparently for a pregame show. My guess is they’re a local band of some kind, but if you want to know more, feel free to google them. All I know is one of them keeps playing the first six notes of the old Jimi Hendrix national anthem rift (Oh Say Can You See) over and over again, without going any farther into the song than that. … It’s a densely overcast morning here, so much so that you can’t even see the East Bay from McCovey Cove, but right now it doesn’t feel like it’s as cold as it was last night. There is some rain in the forecast, but the tarp is off the infield, although it’s laying across left field like it was just taken off in the last few minutes. … Brady Clark has emerged from the clubhouse and is standing on the warning track in front of the dugout, bat in hand, watching intently as the Sippy Cups prepare for their show. … By the way, I had lunch yesterday with a close buddy of mine, Chris Haft, who covers the Giants for mlb.com, and we went to MoMo’s, at the corner of 2nd and King, or directly across King from the leftfield corner at AT&T Park. Place was great. I highly recommend it for a pregame meal if you’re ever up here. I went with the basic bacon cheeseburger and fries, but the burger was served on a ciabatta roll, which gave it a unique texture and flavor.
