Sean at Giants game during the recent #SportsGeekTrip
Back at my fave ballpark home of @sfgiants. Fond memories of @seatconference #SEAT2015 playing softball then announcing the final game with Tom. Remains the best set working event of any conference I've attended.
Look forward to catching up with Giants … https://t.co/WsuyZKUFwV pic.twitter.com/zHwMxjhh75
