Peace is brokered at Oakland tailgate

A's fans Gage, 7, Quintona "Wiggi" Branch and Craig Imlach enjoy the first tailgate at the Coliseum during the 2012 season.

This is actually a rare moment of peace between Branch and Imlach, as they are from separate fractions of the Oakland bleacher die-hards. Imlach, who has season tickets in section 135, says the left-field bleachers are clearly better.

"We're starting to get to know each other, left field and right field," Imlach said with a laugh. "We go bowling, play softball -- we're always competing."
