Way, way out there
If you’ve been following the A’s stadium story, you know they plan to move to a new “Cisco Field” in Fremont, miles from any BART or train stop (see map at right). Though several significant obstacles remain — such as the little matter of the land development company that controls the swath of land not yet signing off on the plan — the A’s already have several web pages full of drawings posted.
By car: one hour to go 13.8 miles during evening rush hour
By train/bicycle: 1 hour 35 minutes from San Jose during the noon hour
By bus: One hour 47 minutes.
Und so wieter. His verdict: fans will have “a choice of pain.”
Now that’s what I call a marketing slogan. “Cisco Field — Pick Your Pain!”
