Did you have cars parking on you lawn for games? Back in the '50's and '60's, the games were always Friday night at 8:15 pm. Parking was always tight around the Bowl so many of the houses in the immediate vicinity let people park on their lawns and charge them. They jam cars in down the side of the houses toward the back. You'd have cars front to back.Born 1 block from the old Orange Bowl and grew up in North Miami.
When you walked up what seemed like countless spiral ramps up to your seating it was the pungent aroma of cigars. Never forget that. Now, I never see a cigar smoker. It was so common for men a generation or two older than mine.
Miss those days.
