We had a lot of fun doing this week’s podcast — with San Francisco Chronicle pop culture critic Peter Hartlaub. If you don’t know Peter, he’s an expert when it comes to all things San Francisco/Oakland/Bay Area.
We talked to him a lot about the sports history in the Bay Area, but we also hit on all kinds of things — the Hamm’s beer sign and what ever happened to it, the time Randy Cross got hurt at Marine World, the domed stadium in San Francisco that never came to fruition, life in the archives at the Chron, and way more.
If there’s one thing Hartlaub has tons of perspective on it’s the Bay Area and its sports teams 49ers season tickets have been in the Hartlaub family for decades and he’s still very much ready, willing and able to come around on Jed York and the team again. Hartlaub also dissects the Warriors’ move to San Francisco and the team’s history all over the Bay Area.
