My last time visiting the stick! Very emotional and fun day out on the point. Yes this is a baseball blog and this was a niners game….I’ll be the first to admit Im not nearly as much of a diehard niners fan as a Giants fan… However candlestick was where I grew up watching my heroes in red & gold and black & orange. I want to thank my dad, late grandpa, mum, brother, all of the die hard fans who shivered with me, the amazing players I had the privilege to watch perform. It’s hard for me to imagine the place where joe Montana, Willie mays, jerry rice, Barry and bobby, Steve young, Lott, Matt Williams, cepeda, marichal, JT, TO, VD, Gore, and will Clark played will be no more. Where Brian Johnson hit THAT home run. Deon Sanders stealing bases for the giants. Rod beck loading em up and striking them out before Brian Wilson made it cool. Until there’s a cute day. The final Beatles concert. Elvis! The catch. The catch II! Playing catch in the parking lot with my brother and dad. Listening to KNBR as we slowly moved outta the parking lot into 101 south. The impossible fly balls. All contained in that run down stadium. I’ll never forget you candlestick. I’m glad I was able to say goodbye today! Go niners and giants!!!!!
