Adios 'Stick

Uploaded: Dec 24, 2013
As Dwight Clark put it so well, "It was a dump, but it was our dump."

I will not miss Candlestick Park.

There is a storied history about how the place was built to begin with, and there were some storied events there over the years.

For me, Willie Mays was inhibited to accomplish his full capabilities thanks to the 'Stick. It is amazing what he was able to do in such a terrible environment.

Also for me, I had tickets to the earthquake game from my employer, and passed them on to a guy who worked for me at the time, since I had seen the Giants beat the Cubs in the NLCS.

I love PacBell Park (I refuse to call it ATT Park.) The Giants have a magnificent home and it is not paid for by taxpayers, it is paid for by fans and other supporters.

I observe the new facility in Santa Clara and am hopeful that it will be world class. I do wonder if the Raiders also could use it, along the lines of the Meadowlands in NJ, where both the NY Giants and NY Jets both play.
