Grateful Dead, Grateful We Won Finally
Every year, the Giants have some former members of The Grateful Dead (Phil Lesh and Bob Weir) sing the National Anthem at AT&T Park, and yesterday (the anniversary of Jerry Garcia's death), they did so again, along with 3rd base coach Tim Flannery, as the club hosted a Grateful Dead Day. The stands were full of people in tie-dye or sporting Dead t-shirts, and during the game on tv, the camera kept going back to this one guy in the stands who was the spitting image of Jerry Garcia.
It's a respectable rendition of the National Anthem.
The Giants beat the Pirates, 6-0, and Chris Stewart hit his first major league home run.
