Dead On Deck In San Francisco

Giants players won't be sporting tie-dye patches on their uniforms or retiring a number for Jerry Garcia, but count on a lot of tie-dye and more than a few numbers being lit-up in the stands at AT&T Park when the Giants play host to the Chicago Cubs Monday (8/9) in San Francisco.  On the day marking the anniversary of the date in 1995 the guitarist got permanently scratched from the Grateful Dead lineup card, fellow guitarist and band mate Bob Weir will deliver the national anthem and drummer Mickey Hart will lead more than 7,000 kazoo playing Deadhead fans in Take Me Out To The Ball Game during the 7th inning stretch.  Pre-Game festivities will include Bay Area Dead and Garcia solo cover band performances.
The Giants TV affiliate seemed to think a canned Rod Beck feature was more worthy than Weir doing the anthem, so we'll flash you back to 1993 when Jerry himself was in the house to do the honors. (video)
As for the 7th inning stretch - no coverage of that either - raising the question of whether the ban on pictures, accounts or re-transmissions of the game applies when the coverage ignores what you tuned-in to see.
Go Cubs!
