When the Giants finally come back to town for Game 3 of the World Series on Friday, data-usage records at AT&T Park are expected to be broken. The record was already broken during last week's dramatic Game 5 of the National League Championship, as the Business Times reports. Not even the Beyoncé/Jay-Z shows this summer saw as much uploading of photos and receiving of texts as that game!
Yes, it seems like the glory of Thursday night's 6-3 championship victory, driven home by that incredible last-second home run by Travis Ishikawa, trumps Beyoncé in this town. Data usage at the park, including sending and receiving, nearly doubled the August record set during the Bey-Jay show. Maybe because there are so many jerks in this town that have to own the newest iPhone the second it comes out?
Anyway, whatever the reason, it's clear that it's only going to get crazier during the World Series. So, if you're lucky enough to be going, do try to be a little sparing in your selfie-posting and Facebooking of every inning? For the sake of your fellow social-media-obsessed fans.
Game 1 of the series is tomorrow evening, in Kansas City, starting at 5:07 p.m. Pacific. Game 3, 4, and 5 (if it's needed) will be at home in S.F., setting us up for potential riots, on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Brace yourselves.
