To observe the final game to be played at Candlestick Park, and to help with the upcoming beta test of the my.groupol.ogy software, I’d like you to share as many Candlestick memories that you have.
I’ve seen two no-hitters, many Dodger fan/Giant fan fights that have included a burning Dodger banner, a poor guy fall from the 2nd death to his death behind the Giants dugout after the team’s 12th straight loss, Mike Ivey hitting a grand slam, Joe Morgan fizzling the Dodger’s playoff hopes, an all-star game, Joe Namath being sacked 6x, Fran Tarkenton fumbling the football and, of course, Montana to Clark. I’ve gone there with childhood friends, boyfriends, college friends, family and lots of drunk acquaintances. Candlestick was the backdrop to a terrible childhood, giving me the only relief when I imagined the Giants playing lazily under the heat of the sun until the 3pm blast of tornado winds began to form in the outfield. I will be sad to see it go, because it will truly be the end of an era.
What are your memories and impression?
