Normally when I see a plane in or around the Coliseum I tune it out, because it’s always an ad. I’m not interested.
During today’s game, apparently Budweiser went a bit too far with their plane-flown banner…
Wow, impressive trolling by the SF Giants. Plane just flew over with an ad containing their WS Champ logo. RF Bleachers not impressed.

The plane and banner were courtesy of Anheuser Busch/Inbev, not the Giants directly. I suppose they got a two-for-one deal by flying the plane a few hours later over AT&T Park, if that happened. Whatever happened, I’m not outraged by it. I appreciate the moxie required to get that ad in the air. This after Budweiser opened one of its signature “Bowtie Bar” locations inside the Coliseum.
That said, I hope y’all don’t mind if I continuously laugh at the Giants’ current foibles. “Defending” World Champs in name only, not in effort, assholes.
Well, I guess it’s a good thing that the concept of territorial rights only applies to building ballparks on a site, not airspace, radio or TV airwaves, placing team stores, or any other extension of a team’s marketing machine.
One other thing – Support local craft beer!
