I went to my first giants game and first niners game at the stick when I was just a wee lad. It was a Monday night game against the vikings, the year Rice broke his leg I think, the parking lot was mud
And I didn't realize that the place was a dump. For me though when I think of the stick there are 2 memories that outshine the rest. 1 being Young to Owens in that wildcard game against the packers, that catch was just... Wow, and the call from summerall and madden. The next one is my greatest sports memory, the Brian Johnson homerun against the dodgers in 97, I remember rushing to the rec center after school, they had a tv upstairs, I turned on the game just in time to see it. I went nuts jumping up and down in that room, I was the only one in there. I remember the stick went crazy like I never seen.
I don't know, the giants old unis and the bright sun at the stick with the diehards in the stands and kuipers voice, there's something so Bay Area about it, it's hard to explain.
