By the end of the night, all seven pairs of Sentinel feet were sore and thankful to grab a seat on the CalTrain. It had been a treacherous field day, as every reporter had covered some story by reaching out to the public, capturing photos of their topic, and traveling the distance of the city to grab that one last piece of information.

After taking the 8:04 train to the city, a quick drink from Starbies sent us on our way to the Civic Center to cover the USA World Cup game. Reporters Justin Kasser, Lily Friebel, Rory Plewman, and Jasper Goodman took to the public to ask them how they viewed the big game in the community value of it. An American Flag face-painted fan justified it. “You’ve seen fans going to bars, the civic center, bonding over U.S. Soccer.” He went on to describe how going to further rounds would just increase the cities involvement and excitement in support for the American athletes. Though the team lost to Germany 1-0, USA moved on in the World Cup due to scoring differential, and therefore continued to give the San Francisco community reason to celebrate.

After that it was onto Union Square for some more Starbies inside Macy’s, along with more public interviews about the Warriors new stadium becoming future neighbor’s with the SF Giants home base. While some were surprised the movement followed through, many felt the Warrior’s dedicated fans would follow behind and continue to support their basketball team.

Finally, Sentinel headed to AT&T Park for consecutive interviews with Giants executives lead by Kasser and Friebel. There was a stadium tour and some special sights only available to the medi, such as the press box. Enjoying the sights of the game from many different viewpoints, Sentinel staff checked in at the international cuisine complex in center field, the @café powered by Jive, and the recently opened garden below the video board. Though the seats were high up, the view of McCovey Cove couldn’t have been clearer. The day ended on a loss for the Orange and Black, but an productive and proud day for the Red and White.
