Flying Panda

A quick post to show some photos of Pablo Sandoval in Venezuela Friday for the big Caracas v. Magallanes championship game.
As you probably know, Pablo flew from the Sharks game in San Jose on Thursday night (view video) to Miami, then to Caracas, where a helicopter was waiting. It flew him to Valencia, then Pablo was whisked to the ballpark with a police escort. 
And all of it was shown live on national television. 
“I didn’t have permission but I talked to (Brian Sabean) when I was in Miami, and they said yes, but only as DH,” Sandoval told an MLB reporter in Venezuela. He went 1-for-4.
“A Caracas-Magallanes game is something else. You feel like your heart is going to come right out of your mouth,” Sandoval had told reporters earlier.

I love this story about Pablo! When I read about it on Twitter while it was happening, I thought it was a joke! It would have been such a fairytale ending if he had the winning hit also, or if his team had even won at least. Oh well. That’s pretty cool anyway. :) I’m glad he’s coming back to SF for FanFest!
