If one mayor represented all of Alameda and Contra Costa counties, that person's 2.5 million constituents would live in the country's fourth-largest city. And just as these East Bay counties are very different from the rest of the San Francisco Bay Area, the East Bay Express is a very different paper. From the international populations that make Oakland and Richmond so dynamic, to the ideological diversity that separates Berkeley from Walnut Creek, our readers are united by their love of a region that is second to nowhere in beauty, livability, intellectual firepower, and cosmopolitan charm.
Every week, the Express provides these well-educated world travelers the only medium dedicated exclusively to them. From our authoritative cover stories; to our in-depth local reporting, arts and dining coverage; to the area's most comprehensive weekly calendar; the East Bay Express has been this vibrant region's leading voice since 1978.
They fought their owner, and they fought each other. They wore their hair long, grew big mustaches and wore the loudest uniforms possible. Oh, yeah, they also were the greatest baseball dynasty since Casey Stengel's Yankees of the 1950s, winning the World Series in three consecutive years.
We're talking, of course, about "The Mustache Gang" -- the nickname of the Oakland A's of the early 1970s. They were led by eccentric owner Charlie O. Finley and his smart, dutiful cousin Carl Finley, who ran the threadbare front office while doing the work of a dozen men. The team also featured future Hall of Famers, such as Catfish Hunter, Rollie Fingers, Reggie Jackson and manager Dick Williams, along with legendary pitcher Vida Blue (who should be in the Hall).
