Ahhh, Schaefer Stadium. The worst facility that $6 million could build in 1971. I grew up in Foxboro, and when I'd take friends/family from other parts of the country by the Stadium their reaction was always the same... "THIS is your stadium?!?!". Such a dump. Great site lines though.I was at the BC/Alabama game at Foxboro in 1983. Most bizarre football weather day ever. Snow, sleet, heavy rain, high winds; you name it. The power went out very early in the game. Late November. The game continued despite no power. No TV time outs, shortened halftime so the game could be played before dark set in. I think the game was played in like two hours. Power never came back on during the game. You couldn't sit as the stands were like a waterfall. Truly bizarre. Btw, Doug Fluttie and BC beat Bama that day.
