I was in that crazy but fun Bay Area crown on BART heading back to Contra Costa County. There was on Saturday alone, Fleet Week, The America's Cup and Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, Giants game, Cal game, Justin Bieber concert kids, Stanford football. As soon as we dropped off those with their belts around their upper thighs it was a pleasant and fun experience the rest of the way.
