A great stadium and a wonderful neighborhood setting.
I saw the first Monday Night Football game (or at least that's my claim) at Memorial Stadium. It was in 1964, Colts vs. St. Louis Cardinals. The game was originally scheduled in St. Louis, but the baseball Cardinals were in the Series against the Yanks and the football game was moved from St. Louis to Baltimore on Monday, October 12. I believe the Colts won the game; what I do remember is the big game that Steve Stonebreaker had at linebacker for the Colts. I had been to the Saturday Series game at Yankee Stadium (Mickey Mantle homering on Barney Shultz's first pitch in the ninth, beating the Cards 2-1), so that was a big sports weekend for me.
The Colts/Cardinals game, of course, was six years before the first MNF telecast on ABC (September, ' 70), but it was NFL on Monday night, thus my claim.
Baseball or football, Memorial Stadium was a terrific place to go for a game.
After 1957, it seemed like we would never laugh again. Of course, we did. Its just that we were never young again.
