Re: 2009 Reds Attendance
I think it's sad, but I don't think it's hilarious at all. If this franchise is ever in danger of moving or being contracted, and I wouldn't dismiss that possibility over the next 20-30 years as baseball continues to discard notions of tradition and seeks to globalize the game, it will be because this town ceased to care. At opening day, I saw more "fans", beer in hand with their backs turned to the field, than people paying attention to the game. As a Cincinnatian and a lifelong Reds fan, that is anything but "hilarious". It is imperative that the club make some kind of championship run soon.
