So I'm going to see the Riverhawks tonight... and it makes me feel good that even if wealthy bastards will kill this season, I can always watch minor league baseball.
I mean, it's that hometown feeling you get while watching a game that you paid $5 for. Hell... I can even say I watched a promising Dallas Cowboys QB play here five years ago... that, and stand by Mitch Robinson as he got hit in the shnoodies by a errant baseball. :>
And you get two for one. Saw a twi-night doubleheader in Frederick between the Keys and the Cannons on Saturday night for some double-barrel Carolina League action. Two seven-inning games of great ball and fewer Washington area yuppies who pay $35 to bullshit during the game(sorry about that rant but jesus I was sitting in box seats at an O's-Mariners day game a couple of weeks back and these four goofs in front of us were talking about and paying attention to anything but the game, even when Ichiro fouled off a long drive two feet over from them).
I'm from New Orleans and went to all the Super Regional Tulane-Rice games. This was quite the topic down here a couple of days ago. I haven't seen many worse choke jobs than this one. They just folded like a tent.
