I attended my first game at the Coliseum in August 1972 when I was 10 years old. I have great fondness for this ballpark, not so much for its architecture, but for the many wonderful memories I've developed over the last forty plus years.

The "renovation" of the Coliseum and the erection of Mount Davis is the price the city and county paid to bring back the Raiders after their sojourn to Los Angeles. It was a financial boondoggle from the beginning, one the taxpayers are still paying for, and not just from an aesthetics point of view.
