The Giants' theme for this season's farewell to their unloved old park, borrowed from veteran broadcaster Lon Simmons's home run call, has been, "Tell it goodbye." But Candlestick isn't going anywhere; the Giants are. The 49ers will continue to play on that blasted heath until they can solidify their own plans for a new stadium. Besides, the weather there in football season is much balmier than in summer. That is one of the park's many ironies: In the NFL, Candlestick is considered a warm-weather stadium.
So don't cry for her.
