A’s President Dave Kaval trolls Giants over cardboard cutouts of fans

A’s President Dave Kaval really wants a rivalry with the Giants.

First it was the hat exchange program, where fans could trade in Giants hats for A’s ones. Then it was the A’s charging Giants fans $20 more for parking during the Bay Bridge Series unless they yelled “Go A’s”.

Yeah it’s all pretty corny, if not lighthearted. The latest could also be described as such. On Tuesday night, Kaval tweeted that Giants fans can buy cardboard cutouts of themselves to be placed in the visiting fan zone at the Oakland Coliseum when the teams face off this season. That area is in a part of the stadium where seagulls can “perform target practice” according to Kaval.

The idea of a legit rivalry between the two clubs is remote considering how sparingly they face each other, but the more Kaval engages in these types of silly trolls, the more Giants fans will be annoyed by the A’s.
