RIP candlestick,3 com park, monster park.


that's a damn shame............ I'm gonna cry when that happens.
You guys in San Francisco should all rush the field with shovels and dig out your patch of history! The grounds that brought us 5SBs and catches should not go to the dump!
The video will be all over the place. Not sure I will even want to watch it. It's too bad they probably won't gut it out and sell pieces 1st. That's a lot of money for charity or even if the city kept it... a lot of fans would love to have a chair or anything. To them it's probably not worth their time and effort unfortunately.

No better way to send it off than a bunch more memorable games and a 49ers super bowl or two. It's going to be exciting but sad at the same time.

Bonner said the Candlestick site will eventually contain 6,000 new homes as part of a redevelopment project.


But I understand it. I saw my first pro baseball game there (my love SF Giants), my first pro football game there (my other love SF 49ers), and took my son to his first baseball game and football game there. Went to games there with my mom, dad, grandpa, and best friends growing up. For some its a team they love with no attachment to the city or stadium, for others like me, its a place we spent many days and hours of our child hood. My dad had season tickets to the Giants and Niners growing up. I will miss it.

I hear ya. Since becoming a 49ers fan, I've come to love The City and Candlestick.

I've had the fortunate opportunity to go to 5 games at The Stick (one of them being the playoff game vs. Saints!) and I just can't bear to think of them tearing that place down.

It may be a dump, it may be outdated, it may be in a poor location...

But it's our dump! And it's flair for nostalgia is immeasurable. You just get a special feeling going up those escalators, looking out over the water.

in the end, everything becomes dust.

Hopefully they will do something to auction off some parts of the stick. I would love to buy a seat from there and have it as memorabilia.
gonna get a seat, lol
That's gonna be sad but change is inevitable.
