A sewage leak at Oakland Coliseum has sports fans aware of an even greater stink than usual.
A's owner Lew Wolff said Monday he has no plans to talk to baseball commissioner Bud Selig about the urgency of the club's stadium situation in the wake of a plumbing issue that flooded the Coliseum's baseball clubhouses with sewage Sunday.
"No, he knows about it," Wolff said by phone from Los Angeles. "Unless he's a plumber, there's not much he can do, either."
Wolff said this was just the latest issue of many the A's have encountered with the Coliseum's aging plumbing, noting, "It's not a rare occasion for us, maybe not this extensively, but it's happened several times."
Of course, the Oakland Raiders and Oakland A's share a facility (the last of the MLB and NFL team duos to do so), so this sewage is the Raiders' problem too.
It raises the philosophical question - which came first, the Raiders or the stink?
