FAREWELL CANDLESTICK

Candlestick park, aka 3Com Park, aka Monster Park, aka The Stick it’s been a fixture in SF since 1960 and hosted the best and worst moments of both the SF Giants and 49ers. The Beatles played their last show there in 1966, Pancho Moler shot a Think ad out front, soccer enthusiasts have watched many futbol matches, Van Halen, Scorpions, and Mettalica cranked out the Monsters of Rock there in 1988, and December 22, 2013 the 49ers played the last football game to ever be played at this battered facility.¬†We had an all-star crew out to say farewell and though no tears were shed, many drinks were had. Farewell my friend, I grew up with you and I was damn proud to be there for the last game. If you don’t know, you never will. Candlestick Park will have to rest in the hood peacefully…
