Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

for sure.  i had my back to the stadium, so was looking out over the fifty rows of cars, when i saw their roofs roll like waves coming in. i knew what it was, spread my legs and surfed it in shock.

i took me almost five minutes to realize, damn, that was a big one. at about 7 minutes i saw the first ashen faces descending the long escalator from the upper deck, then i realized i had also spun and saw the light standards in motion. at about ten minutes came the news a section of the
Bay Bridge was down.

first thought, my car's in the first row, i'm outta here, where's my son. picked my way through so rubble strewn streets and got home to find he'd already gone down to the Marina.

over the next days learned much about the psychology of severe earthquakes.  some great baseball stories too as amurka's baseball elite gathered to drink at the Washbag.
