Cars and Women's Fashion of Yesteryear

My Favorite Dive Stadium


 I got to head to my favorite dive stadium to see the Green and Gold play:



There was a full moon at the Coliseum 


And as always I had to take some pics from stadium:



In honor of the late great A's Player and Broadcaster Ray Fosse who passed away last year


And I got to see some history as Shohei Ohtani hit his 100th home run:

The Coliseum may be a a dive stadium but I am happy to have a major league baseball near me and I love my Oakland A's.

It was so nice and relaxing. A great time to spend before doing some work training.

The Theme From Formula 1:


If you know about racing then you know the great Mario Andretti hails from Nazareth, PA and learned how drive at the Nazareth Speedway:



A little Patrick trivia- One of my all time favorite movies is the documentary called "1" which is about the safety history of Formula 1 racing, here is the song used in the final of the movie:


Call me a sucker for tradition but this would give me chills and he would sing it before the Indy 500 from 1972 to 2014 and here is his last time singing it:


I am a little bit of a race nerd. Hope everyone has a wonderful week.

Hanging at Trinity Place


 Trinity Place is a new chi-chi apartment complex in the heart of Downtown San Francisco.  The cool thing is the art in the courtyard. You walk-in and greeted by this:

And the second courtyard has this:
