Talking And the Marlins' attendance today......

Quote:
A sprinkling of fans look on during the second inning of a baseball game between the Florida Marlins and the Atlanta Braves Wednesday, Sept. 3, 2008 at Dolphin Stadium in Miami. Fewer than 600 people were in Dolphin Stadium's bright orange and aqua seats for the first pitch, leaving most of them to reflect the afternoon sun. The ballpark was so quiet that home-plate chatter could be heard. The Marlins defeated the Braves 5-3.



I found this to be kinda funny.... can you imagine Wrigley with 600 people in it?

Wow, it's kind of sad. I've noticed this with other ballparks that the Cubs have played in too, PNC comes to mind. I'm always distracted by all of the empty seats in the background. When the D'backs have a bad season, by September Chase Field is pretty empty during games too. I'm so used to seeing a packed Wrigley Field!

It would be kinda neat to hear the "home plate chatter"... although, there are times I think that on the tv, you can hear some of it going on if you listen carefully (when I have the surround sound on...and it's not usually words they would normally allow on TV)

Marlins have won 2 World Series in the past 11 years... that is sad.

No, actually it is funny.
