This might be very personal and self-serving as I am going to talk about something I am passionate about and many people don't know why.
The view from my seat during the day and night:
|Out in center field is what is called Mt. Davis built in 1995 when the Raiders came back. It pretty much ruined the beautiful views of the Oakland Hills|
And just some random stuff:
|The cardboard cutouts they used last season. Joe DiMaggio actually was a coach for the A's 1968-1970 and the hot dog vendor is Tom Hanks who sold hot dogs at A's games in the mid-70's.|
|Hall of Famer Dennis Eckersley who is an East Bay native|
And a little game action:
And the giveaways were an African-American Heritage Shirt and an A's Pride Rally Towel
The Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum is so East Bay. People who have grown up in the East Bay of the San Francisco Bay Area are so authentic, original and organic along with gritty and tough. As she puts it "Authentic fans, not pretentious. Trying too hard-wanna 'appear trendy' folk."
The Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum is the Last Dive Stadium left in a world that is all about being trendy, chic and catering to the chichi crowd. It is about having fun and letting the good times roll.
