However, baseball and the San Francisco Giants still played a huge role in the Henry household regardless of Papa Henry's career choice.
So, to watch the Giants finally overcome fifty-six years of disappointment, and bring their first title to San Francisco, Ric traveled with Ann Ryan and Brian Nash to the Hi-Dive Bar, underneath the Bay Bridge:
Although Ric was nearly brought to tears by his team's victory, he still had to defend himself from being accused a "bandwagon fan."
See, despite Ric's desperate search for his two (very authentic mind you) Giants' jerseys, it only took a couple of minutes to realize that Nicholas had commandeered both of his jerseys to support his team in Colorado.
Jersey #1 enjoying some late night cheese fries at "Smelly Deli" in Boulder, CO.
Jersey #2 (and #3 considering Angie's Hawaiian Giants extravaganza) back home for a regular season game in 2009.
Nicholas later brought it back to CO.
To cope with this dilemma, Ric luckily had his trusty orange and black Karl Lawrence shirt:
However, when looking for his black overshirt, he realized Nicholas had stolen that as well. So he finally resorted to wearing a tuxedo shirt, with pleats and french cuffs over his orange getup, and had to spend the majority of his night claiming he was not a "poser," but, in fact, a life-long fan.
Ric still gets a post-game hug from Ann despite his lack of "true-fan" gear.

But not to worry, Ric, we believe you. Here are some photos from Ric and Brian's phones documenting the historical night:
