    I grew up in NW Iowa following the Twins. That included family trips up the Twin Cities and the old Metropolitan Stadium to cheer on Harmon Killebrew, Tony Oliva, and Fran Tarkenton (when we went up to watch the Vikings in the dead of Winter). My Uncle also lived in Kansas City, where I saw my first A's Game (before they moved to Oakland).

    That makes me an American League guy, regardless of how much I enjoy watching the Giants and in their wonderful AT&T Park. I've even caught a game or 2 at Raley field, home of the Green & Gold's AAA River Cats affiliate.

    I've been going to the now old and tired Coliseum for years, including the 1989 World Series that was punctuated by the Loma Prieta Earthquake. Ticket prices have gone up, the 3rd Deck cover is still kind of weird, and I still have zero interest in coming back to Mt. Davis for the football season.

    Gayle and I took our Canadian friends (Jim and Kathy from Calgary) to last night's game even though we lost to the Orioles (8-4). Our friends are huge live sports watchers, as evidenced by their season tickets for the Stampeders (CFL) and Flames (NHL). We all had a great time and stayed until the very end. Our Section 212 seats were comfortable, with nice sight lines, and easy access to the concessions at the West Side Club. The big bonus was the 1989 World Series Reunion and a chance to see Ricky, Jose, and others up close.

    Despite its age, this stadium is still great. It's home to both baseball's A's and football's Raiders. It's pretty convenient to get to as there is a Bart station connected via a bridge. There's usually a couple 3rd party peddlers on the bridge if you want cheap apparel or a cheap churro.

    No baseball team needs a new stadium like the Oakland A's. But hey, if you're in town looking for a relatively cheap baseball experience, this is the place to go! And bring your glove, you just might be close enough to snag a foul ball!

    Best team in baseball. Who cares if the food is expensive?
