For Giants’ ‘Lou Seal,’ it’s 1,051 games and counting

Monday, September 26, 2011

imageThe Giants’ “Lou Seal,” aka Joel Zimei, gets a shout-out as the Cal Ripkin of mascots in today’s Wall Street Journal for his having attended 1,051 straight home games. It isn’t always easy. An excerpt:

Once he had to drive half the night from Reno after his flight from Denver to San Francisco was canceled and the closest he could get was Nevada. He made it to the game. "I was totally delirious," says the 38-year-old Mr. Zimei. Another time, his uncle's funeral was scheduled during a home game. Mr. Zimei planned to go back east for the services but stayed here after an understudy told him: "I don't want to be you."
