Thumbs up Candlestick Park slated for demolition in early 2014

I would be lying if I posted that I am sorry!!!

************************************************** *******

Candlestick Park, the stadium that hosted Jerry Rice, Joe Montana and Steve Young in their primes, the site of The Catch and the home field for the 49ers for more than four decades, is slated for implosion within weeks of the 49ers’ last home game next season.

The 49ers will play 2013 at Candlestick and then move to their new Santa Clara stadium in 2014.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that after some talk of letting the stadium sit empty until a new developer is found for the area, the city has now decided on a demolition plan that will see the building collapse very early in 2014.

And so we’ll say goodbye to an iconic American stadium, one which hosted some great moments in NFL history, which served as the home stadium for the Raiders for one season in 1961, which hosted two World Series, and which even hosted the final concert ever performed by The Beatles.

Stating up front that I have never been to this stadium, but, just because it has seen a lot of memorable events doesn't mean it's a viable, fan friendly stadium.

Me too and seeing it in person is far worse than what most see on TV. 49er fans have had lots of good memories in that stadium though.

Any chance they forget to notify Harbaugh and he's in his office when the wrecking ball swings through?

Re: Candlestick Park slated for demolition in early 2014

I went to quite a few games there... People were always friendly for the most part.... I lived in SF for many years, and drove by there everyday... I am a Niner hater for sure, but it kind of makes me sad to know its going to be gone...
