A Requiem For A Season Or You NEVER CHIT Where You Eat

In Regards to The Post-Season Fans Of The Two Teams:

In Post Season Situations, you don't see that many real fans. In Tampa Bay, this and other seasons, you rarely saw that many fans to begin with at that Circus Tent in St Petersburg, FL;

1/3 of The Crowd are Season Ticket Holders, 1/3 are sponsors and 1/3 Are Representatives of the 29 Other M L B Clubs. The Principal Owner Of The Rays, has Season Tickets in $iti Field in Corona, for instance;

In Regular Season, it was rare to see a Capacity Crowd, and Usually a capacity Crowd was only for the Series with The Red Sox. Despite all of those Ex-Denizens of the 5 Boroughs living down there, The Yankees wouldn't draw the Capacity Crowds;

Will Sternberg Emulate Huizenga and Loria, in conducting a Fire Sale after The Season? It is Florida, a Pro Sports Black Hole, after all;

Last Night's Crowd, of a bit over 40K, with Noisemakers from Jeffy's Bar Mitzvah, witnessed History. When one considers that the Franchise existed for 10 Prior Seasons, in The Era of Free Agency, I'm surprised that they never made a run at it, earlier, which is Unlike The AZ Diamondbacks, who came into M L B at The Same Time, and Won The World Series in '01;

Tampa Bay 3, Red Sox 1 is the Final Score ending this dramatic 7 Game Series;

The Trouble is that Red Sox Pitching Chit The Proverbial Bed At Fenway Park. Because of The Postseason Situation, The Cask n Flagon got crowds earlier when people left Fenway Park in as early as the 5th Inning, which is unthinkable in Regular Season. Pitching was NON-Existent there;

The Hot Stove Is Warming up-will there be Fireworks between Larry and Theo?

Later!

Hi, Michael:

Glad you enjoyed my Yoooooook story.

Not a bad one to go out on. The Rays deserved it, of course. I think they take the Phils in 6, but we'll see.

It's A game, Sul:

But I questioned The Quiet Off Season of '07;

No Movement, but at least it wasn't a downgrade
