I was certain every possible joke about baseball attendance in Florida had been exhausted over the past 20 years. Then I saw the [tweet by Joe Capozzi of the Palm Beach Post that included the photo above] from the [Miami Marlins] Winter Warm Up event Saturday and realized we haven’t even scratched the surface.
The Marlins have used up all of the goodwill a new taxpayer-funded stadium gave them just a year ago. They've made many missteps, but [the massive giveaway with the Blue Jays] turned even[hardcore Fish fans against them]. And it has left them with a line for tickets that's four people long. That's [not including this guy], who wore a Blue Jays cap to the event in protest.
Later on, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald published another photo from the fan fest that is somehow more depressing than Capozzi's: [A completely deserted concession stand]:
maybe all the fans bought the tickets online? if this is true... 30 minutes before they go on sale... that's really rough
How about a celebrity death match between Loria and the Wilpons. Winner loses his team, loser loses his team? Is this something Mets and Marlins fans can both agree on?
