OCThen reader, Brian W, shares his memories of Orange County...
My dad, Brad Worley,just passed away in Tustin last month. I live in DC now, but damn I have a lot of OC memories.OMG, yes I do remember the California Surf soccer team, I actually attended one of their games at Anaheim Stadium, and I want to say they played the Seattle Sounders that day.
The Alligator Farm
Lion country Safari
Original Sam's pizza in Orange (in the sixtys it used to be my maternal grandfather, Lee Fugere's, deli and butcher shop) My mom said the everly brothers used to buy meat there.
The Green Garden chinese restaurant a few doors down from Original Sam's (near Main/C.H.O.C.)
The California Surf soccer team that played at Anaheim Stadium?
The Southern California Sun football team?
Anaheim Stadium when the Big a was the scoreboard?
Anaheim stadium when the Rams moved in.
Anyone ever have an Anaheim Rams bumper sticker.
Remember the Cinedome theatres near the Santa Ana river?
Tewinkle park BEFORE all the fancy landscaping, when there was just a big dirt hill that kids rode their Big Wheels down?
And of course I remember the Cinedome. I would take my wife-to-be in those days, and there would hardly anyone there. We'd find a place away from other people, and just make out all movie long. Had there been any more people seated, we'd have probably been thrown out for indecency!
