Candlestick: A Reluctant Goodbye
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……
