That’s ‘Six Feet Under’ 3.5 Times Over, For Those Of You Keeping Score

Overreact once, shame on you…overreact twice…OMG! If global warming increases sea levels by more than a couple of feet, the A’s new stadium in Fremont might find itself below sea level. We’ll all drown!!!

Except…it seems we’re all dead already…I’ve always felt that being an A’s fan is like being in some kind of purgatory…not quite hell, exactly, but not quite heaven either…things go well, but it’s never quite right…there’s great weather, but an ugly park…great transportation, but to a bad neighborhood…when you win it all, there’s an earthquake or something…and then you find out your favorite players were all a bunch of steroid freaks…anyway…to the point…now I understand why…because right now…today…without the help of global warming…there’s this:

The field at the Oakland Coliseum is 21 feet below sea level.

1.  Absolutely hilarious. I never would have thought I'd read an A's blog, but you keep me coming back.

Oh ... and what about Joe Rudi, Rollie Fingers, Reggie Jackson, Sal Bando, and Vida Blue? I was only 5, and I lived in Orange County, but I still have memories of these guys. That's gotta keep you going, right?

2.  1 Yeah, but mentioning that would have ruined the joke.
