I just watched this ktvu thing about saying goodbye to Candlestick. Everyone wants to get in on a good bye. This is it:
While I was watching it I got emotional. I’m going to do that a lot in the coming days. Keith Olberman can take his witty quips and go fuck himself. The times I spent at Candlestick were some of the best memories of my childhood.
And while we didn’t always win it *all*, in fact we never did in our actual park, going to games at the ‘Stick will always be part of who i am, who I always will be. Till I die.
I’m sitting here typing this blog thread out and all I can think about are the players. That’s unusual for me, I’m usually about *the moments*. But god dammit did these guys give us some moments or what?
My list in THIS moment: (And hang on, it’s gonna be a wild ride. Stream of consciousness. Freestyle. I will miss so many of the best. No order except maybe the first one.)
One Flap Down
Dave Fucking Radar!
That Great Big Ass Escalator
Phil Nastu……. :) …..just to keep it real.
That took me less than 5 minutes to type. And this list could go on forever. Literally. And it will play on inside all of us long after we are gone……
