What is the point of traveling to you? Is it to make memories? To see new countries? To tick another country off the list? Is it about meeting local people or simply tasting new food?
Most of these reasons are significant, but for our Host of the Week and an NYCFC fanatic, Kevin Nelson, one is incredibly important – it’s meeting the local people. But just how exactly do you break the ice? Walking up to strangers isn't everyone's strong point. Thanks to the uniquely unifying power of sports and the internet, meeting new people from around the world is made possible.
Dedicated sports fans everywhere are always game to meet new people with the same interest and to try out new and exciting ways to show their teams how much they are loved.

'Tis the season... baseball season, that is!
Below, we asked our very first San Francisco Giants Host of the Week, Ramon Segovia, the story behind his fandom and why he loved sharing his passion.
Hey baseball fans, if you’re in town for a few days, or if you live in San Francisco - taking in a Giants game is a great way to spend a day or evening. With a world-class ballpark, delicious food, and one of the most exciting teams in baseball, there’s no reason not to go!
One of most fun events that you might enjoy while you are in San Francisco is a Giants baseball game at Oracle Park. After winning 3 World Series between 2010 and 2014, the Giants re-established themselves as a baseball powerhouse. Not only are they a great team to watch, you simply can’t beat the pleasures of this stadium located right on the bay. From the way home run balls get caught by boaters in the bay to special events that feature fireworks and music, Oracle Park is unlike any other baseball stadium that you’ve ever been to. This guide will help you understand the ballpark, the Giants and the best way to enjoy a game day.
Of course, if you don't have time to read all this, you can go with a local by visiting www.sportshosts.com and you'll be given the true local experience at no extra cost!
