Sports! The TaskRabbit Team Heads to AT&T Park

We didn’t catch any foul balls, the kiss cam didn’t find us, and no one got to hug Lou Seal, but we still had a blast at last night’s Giants game.

It worked like a charm. Level 22 TaskRabbit Emmanuel L. showed up early to San Francisco’s Century Centre with this awesome handmade sign and scored us a place at the very front of the line.
