#FarewellCandlestick: The 100 Greatest Moments in Candlestick Park History #100

Sunday, September 22, 2013

There are roughly a hundred productive days left in the life of Candlestick Park; my home stadium by birth (for better and worse).

Over the next 100 days, I'll count down the 100 greatest moments in the history of Candlestick.  Ideally, the three which come in at the bottom will wind up knocked off this list before the stadium gets blown up.  A big regular season Niner win; two home playoff wins gets that done.

Here we go.

#100. August 29, 1966 The Beatles Last Concert

Here's the set list:

Rock And Roll Music,
She's A Woman
If I Needed Someone
Day Tripper
Baby's In Black,
I Feel Fine
I Wanna Be Your Man
Nowhere ManPaperback Writer 
Long Tall Sally.

Why so low?  Why is the last concert by one of the great artists in the history of western civilization #100 on the list?  

I don't own a George Harrison t-shirt.  That's not the church at which I pray.  

Back tomorrow with #99.
