Scott Van Pelt’s Late Night Sprint

I really enjoyed these tweets from Scott Van Pelt during Matt Cain’s perfect game.  He is in San Francisco to cover the U.S. Open Golf tournament which was set to begin bright and early the next day.  But like any sports fan, he started thinking about being a part of history.

Unfortunately, he got started a little late…

I love that a regular season game in June can get a sports anchor to full on sprint to the stadium to see something very special.  I love that he’s a sports anchor professionally but at that moment he was just another fan trying to witness a historic moment.  Finally, I love that the picture shows exactly how far he made it – close enough to hear the roar of the crowd, but not quite close enough to see it for himself.  Really great stuff.
