Re: Riots between Lincoln & Lowell after football games in 1970s

Thinking about those Lowell Football Stands, and the stories about fires, and then the tree planting at the 50 yard line......the best 'prank' that I saw there was about 1969 or so. The night before the Lowell-Balboa football game, someone(s) changed the large red painted "L" in the middle of the stands, to a "B". It was perfectly pulled off and could have passed for a professional art piece. Years later, well into my 30's, I met a guy that claimed to have done it. Very nicely done, Ernie. No vandalism, no destruction (really), but what a great prank.
