Grauman's Chinese #30 -- September 22, 2013

In July, 2012 we paid a return visit to Hollywood and Grauman's Chinese Theater.  Sid Grauman was a San Francisco showman who came to Los Angeles and built three major houses, the Million Dollar, the Egyptian, and the Chinese. The theater has hosted many film premieres, but is most famous for the hand and footprints (and hoofprints and nose prints and other types of prints) in the forecourt.

 Sid Grauman himself left his hand and footprints on 24-January-1946.

The Giants played their first series at new Yankee Stadium.  Today they won on Mariano Rivera Day.  Andy Pettite started his last game.  Yusmeiro Petit started for the Giants and gave up only one run.
