How dedicated are you to your team? Really? Guess what. Priya Butler has you beat. She flew halfway around the world to see her Giants play, from Afghanistan to Detroit. (No "war zone to war zone" jokes, please. Let's have a little sympathy for the Tigers fans.)

Anyway, Butler, who is with the USO, flew from Bagram to Kandahar, Kandahar to Dubai, Dubai to Washington D.C., D.C. to Detroit.

"The weekend's going to cost me around $4,000," she told San Francisco's CBS affiliate before Game 3. "If they sweep, it would be worth twice that."
