Oakland A's Fan Fest 2019

Besides the NHL Fan Fest on Friday, I also went to the Oakland A's Fan Fest on Saturday. I love going to the A's Fan Fest as it means that spring training and baseball are right around the corner:

It was a great time had by all and we are all now primed for the baseball season to begin:

Hey Now Your An All-Star

San Jose has been hoppin with events in the last month. Earlier this month the College Football Playoff National Championship was played in nearby Santa Clara but all the events were held in San Jose. Last weekend, San Jose hosted the National Hockey League All-Star Game for the first time 22 years. While, I didn't go to the All-Star Game itself I did go to the Fan Fair and had a great time:

There were pucks in the park:

Have to show the trio of Hometown Sharks that made the team:

Some Mascots to be seen:

The Edmonton Oilers Mascot Hunter

The Pittsburgh Penguins Mascot- Penguin Pete
A NHL Hall of Famer:

New York Islander great Bryan Trottier
Some other interesting things:

A wax likeness of "The Great One" Wayne Gretzky

Someone making a fool out himself

And there were the trophies. Hockey has the coolest awards in sports:

The Art Ross Trophy-given to the highest scorer in the NHL
The Vezina Trophy- given to the top goalkeeper in the NHL
And the ultimate coolest trophy in all of sports- The Stanley Cup:

San Jose did a wonderful job in hosting the NHL All-Star Weekend.

Art on Main in Murphys

It might seem that I have might be highlighting a lot of art and art places on this blog and the reason is that I have been visiting a lot of art gallerys. I guess that is my thing these days. I went back up to Murphys which about two hours east of the San Francisco Bay Area and found a great little art gallery called Art on Main. It features artwork, crafts, etc., by artists that are local to area:

Art on Main is a wonderful little art gallery that features a bunch of local artists. I love places like this.
