Here you have a team on the fringe of another playoff run and 10,000 people show up. They even give you t-shirts to encourage you to come. Now here in Boston despite having a team that does suck, we still show up and watch the games. Is it to torture ourselves? Maybe a little, but mainly we as fans, recognize that this is our team. Like a marriage, there are good times and bad. This is one of those bad times,but still this is my team and I'll still watch until the last out of the last game.
Back in 2009, so many bandwagon Rays fans came out that they needed to uncover the tarped seats that were never filled. People had on their shiny new Rays caps and shirts. Where are you people now when your team needs support to move forward into playoff season??
Perhaps the owners of the Rays will take notice that connecticut has a large baseball fan base of the Sox and Yankees. Maybe in the Hartford area it would be nice to have the Hartford Rays. I'd certainly go! Up in New England we take our sports very seriously and I think a good team can do well in this neck of the woods. Plus it would be a good meeting place for me and Monstah to bring our boys to a game.
If nothing else, perhaps we can get Joe Maddon to replace Bobby V as manager of the Sox. I have always liked the guy and wouldn't mind that one bit.
So folks, as our beloved Sox season dwindles away we now have the decision of which team we want to beat the Yankees in the ALDS. I am rooting for the A's, after watching "Moneyball", I'd like to see them win the whole thing.
In reference to the pic here, the Rays thank you for your support Sir!
