Ben: I think I recall the schtick with the turkey - it ends up with Bean's head stuffed into the turkey. If I'm not confusing it with something else.
Jeff: The Balboa Stadium might have been before your time, if you left that recently. It's gone, and has been overgrown by the City College campus. I think it was about where the intersections of Ash and 14th would be, if they went through. Tomatos is a really old movie.
The Chargers used to play in that stadium, before they built the one in Mission Valley. You got to it by taking US395 south through the Park to B, made a left, made another left, started hunting for a place to park, and when successful started to walk. If you were really lucky, and agile, you could park in the back of the SDHS campus, hop the fence, and get in that way.
It's not the same thing as Balboa Bowl, which IS in the park, but it's an ampitheater and not a stadium. But that's another thing.
