Quakes fans were notified today that the March 17th home game for the Wolff-owned Earthquakes is being moved to AT&T park as part of a double header with the Mexican olympic team. Those of us who are also A's fans found this quite odd considering the fact that the SF Giants have gone so far as to file a lawsuit against the City of SJ to stop the A's stadium deal. I am curious as to what the rest of your thoughts are about this new venture between the two parties. Does this signal a thawing of relations between the two parties? Or is this just a one-off to raise a few bucks to pay off the Zito contract albatross?
The San Jose Earthquakes announced Wednesday that the club will host the Houston Dynamo at AT&T Park in San Francisco on Saturday, March 17 as part of a doubleheader spectacular with the Mexican U-23 National Team.
