Big Al closes out the wedding season with Stevie G's

So this is wedding 5 of 5 for 2006. It took me everywhere from Walnut Creek to Fairfield to Sacramento (had I gone to Greg's wedding) to Honolulu and finally one close to home - San Jose, CA. I've known Steve for about 3-4 years now and Alyssa for about 2 years. Great couple! I believe they met on It's great to know somebody that actually has been successful using Internet dating. Anyways, I was able to meet a lot of Steve's old friends whom I met at home and abroad like Christina who I hung out with in Dublin, Ireland and London, England. It was so great to see her, but unfortunately she left early because her friend was pregnant. I also was able to hang out with Wilson & Beth who recently celebrated their 1 year anniversary! Damn.. I think I have to get my act together soon.

Big Al's friends are pretty cool

So I got invited to the McAfee Suite at the McAfee Coliseum in Oakland. I thought I would never find my way back in here after I left the company. Luckily I have some cool friends that have access to the box.

I was able to take my new friend Natalie. I met her on the Muni train in SF. It's a funny story how we met. We were taking the outbound Muni train towards the Caltrain stop (the one that runs right in front of AT&T park). The southbound Caltrain from SF to SJ leaves exactly at 4:33. We must have been on the Muni train until 4:32 and everybody in the train was in some kind of panic (except for me). Natalie was going crazy, but I seemed to have calmed her and everybody down. We all got out shortly and made the train. Natalie and I chatted the whole way back. I guess we find friends in weird places under weird circumstances.

Oh yeah.. the A's lost.
