ok good
well they're probably not.
cuz its all about the stupid 49's stadium.
Great America at santa clara isnt and wont be closing down cuz theres alot of parking space there and everytime i go to visit CGA the parking is half filled. So they will be able to build the stadium on the parking space!
:D

I heard not to long ago that San Jose has offered the 49ers the Santa Clara County Fair grounds as a possible stadium location. San Jose has more or less killed the county fair these past few years. So they have been looking for some other use for that land. So with CF asking for more the double the value of the park, and SJ offering the fair ground I would not be surprised if that deal dies.

The SC county fair grounds are in a sad state
The fairs are worse & shorter each year.
I think all they use with regularity is the race track...
