The day of the first Giants-Braves playoff game, the Navy's Blue Angels team were practicing for the weekend's celebration of Fleet Week. The photo was their last pass over the city as they wrapped up practice for the day. As it happens, the flew right over AT&T Ballpark where I was standing on the ramp going up to the nosebleed sections with my wife. They also made a four plane pass over the ballpark to celebrate the beginning of the game. I have to say, they are absolutely awesome!
