    I was there at Spartan Stadium. San Jose, Coach Callaway, Crazy George, great memories!
    Who else remembers?

    We were there. Sat directly behind the path of Waldo's shot and watched it curve into the goal. What a thrill! Those Clash uniforms sure were ugly.

    The San Francisco Vikings Soccer Club chartered a bus to the game. 


    Essentially it was a party.

    We too sat right behind the path of Waldo's shot and it was a beautiful sight to see. I have vivid memories of that shot, game and the many seasons of Clash/Earthquakes soccer we've enjoyed since.
