My first experience at a Dead concert... there were about 60 thou inside the stadium while they performed, and at least that many still out in the parking lot.
This was before the cell phone days and I came from PA, and they came in two cars from the Jersey Shore. I walked around the Giant parking lots for 1.5 hours before I found them. Good thing there were 10 of them... they took turns scouring the lots to find Papa Z... and, the party was on. My first and last experience with shrooms... they did absolutely zero to me.
"Sir, I was wondering: did you happen to catch the professional football contest on television last night?"
"Oh it was most exhilarating: the Giants of NY took on the Packers of Green Bay and in the end the Giants triumphed by kicking an oblong ball made of pigskin through a big H. It was a most ripping victory."
Lived in NY area but not for very long and not until I was an adult. Became a Giants fan because my dad was one. When he immegrated here he quickly became a fan of football and baseball and latched onto the Giants. He never did tell me why the Giants over the Jets, seeing as the Giants were not the better team back then.
Had I never moved from Teaneck, we would have been 5 min from the stadium.
