  • Many people erroneously assume the Monster Park name is associated with the well-known job search website. It is actually named for Monster Cable.
  • Monster Park was almost universally referred to as Candlestick Park by both locals and much of the
    media despite the name change. The Monster Park moniker was confined to the 49ers front office and to some radio and television broadcasters, all of whom were contractually required to use the corporate sponsor's name whenever referring to the park, just as they were with 3Com.
  • Fans in the area (myself included) are sick and tired of the bullshit corporate venue changes, and this stadium has had some of the very worst. A measure passed in the November 2, 2004 election that stated the stadium name would revert back to Candlestick permanently after the contract with Monster Cable expired in 2008.
  • It gets so cold here at night that during baseball season fans who stayed after a San Francisco Giants
    extra inning victory would get a pin that said in latin "I came, I saw, I survived" with the Giants logo
    covered in ice/snow. One baseball player hated this venue so much he specifically put a clause in his
    contract that he could not be traded to the Giants, because they played here.
  • During the last Metallica show here, it was an all day festival, so it lasted from 1pm until 11pm. Fans (including myself) were burnt by the sun in the afternoon and then frozen solid when the sun went down.
