Born in Oakland but moved around CA for a while before returning for high school. Numerous games a year were attended thank to the student discounts and dollar tickets (and dollar dogs). Now I'm on the east coast and attend A's games when they come to town, but I usually return to Oakland for a weekend to enjoy the friendly confines of the Coliseum .
