2 depressing news items to start our season

shocking, really. no better way to put it.
#1 - i moved to bay area in 1979. first thing i did was find the one spot in golden gate park where i could pick up a strong enough signal to listen to the a's on the radio on kdia. we got billy before the 1980 season and started with a real station ksfo either that season or next. from there to knew, then kfrc, and now, well, you know.
#2 - the tarp. ouch.
we've been served notice. hope everyone is paying attention. and not in denial. if we don't pack the park this season, we have no chance to keep this team here. if we fill the seats, we're still in the game.
anyone have any history of teams/parks who have tarped in any sport? i can only think of the marlins. and we know they're moving from miami. did the 'spos tarp? i'd like to know what kind of an indicator tarping has been historically.
my new year's resolution - beat the tarp. step 1.
next year. maybe get on the radio.
