Bay Area Blogger of the Week # 46

The Bullpen Baker

I suppose you might have thought that nobody could possibly come up with a fresh new angle on food blogging. Think again and meet Becca, The Bullpen Baker who is "Dolling out cookies, baked goods, and good ol' fashion cheer from (several rows) behind the Oakland A's bullpen".

Baseball is a whole different world to me. I went to my first (and last) Giants game a year or two ago where I saw Barry Bonds hit home run number 666. I was sitting on seat number six. And my birthdate is 6666. A round of four drinks cost us over $50. How different things might have been if the Giants had been playing the A's on that night, and we'd been sitting behind the Bullpen and a blogger would have brought us free cookies. I might even have had a good time.

The Bullpen Baker is a very funny blog. You just have to read through it. It's all about fan worship, root beer, bitching and of course, cookies. Check it out.

PS. Two birthday wishes are flying towards two wonderful women in LA today. My ex-roomate, D, I miss you. And another D, Ozzie D, I miss you too. Have a lovely day, ladies!

    I love that she posts a baking schedule. I've been meaning to head to an A's game.

    Wow Sam, that's an impressive collection of food bloggers in your area. How fun to have so many others living near you.

    wmm - but I am not, eh? Despite all those sixes.

    Dagny - you'll have to make sure you get a seat in the Bull Pen next to becca if you can, then.

    Kalyn - it never ceases to amaze me that every week I seem to find yet another foody blogger in the Bay Area

    Parisbreakfasts - I am not a huge fan of baseball either, but I thought Becca's angle and writing were so charming, I almost forgot the crux of the subject matter was something I dont generally care for.
