			Peterson: A’s tear down Oakland Coliseum tarps; 5 suggestions what to do with them

A’s president Dave Kaval took to Facebook Live on Tuesday morning for what he termed a “huge announcement.”

No, it’s not a Jack (Three True Outcomes) Cust Bobblehead Night. Think bigger.

“For the upcoming homestand and the rest of the season,” Kaval said, “because the fans have spoken, we’re taking off the tarps. The third deck, the tarps are coming off.”

Specifically, the tarps are coming off the View Level of the Coliseum, where they have been since 2006. The tarps will remain on Mt. Davis, the section named after the late Oakland Raiders owner when the Coliseum was reconfigured in the 1990s for the team’s return from Los Angeles. View tickets will cost $15, with half the cost going to Oakland Promise, a program that helps Oakland students attend college.

Question now is, what do they do with the tarps? Here are five suggestions:

1. Cut them into 10-foot-long strips and have a Slip ‘N Slide giveaway night.

2. Donate them to the effort to repair the Oroville Dam spillway.

3. Give them to the 49ers — their upper deck has looked a little sparse the past few years.

4. Use them to replace the landscaping at Billy Beane’s house to cut down on his water bill.

5. Chuck them in the Raiders locker room and let Mark Davis deal with them.
