Also, I would guess a lot of fans travelled a pretty far distance to get to one of the games (4-hr. drive one-way, game 3 for me). The cost of tickets, gas, lodging, food (and beverages), parking, make it almost impossible to attend game 4 or 5 for many. Additionally, the disappointment of game 3 may have dampened some spirits.
Let's hope the Reds can find a way to pull one out today. I would gladly sacrifice some of the grocery $$ for a trip to next round..... or maybe a shot at the World Series! Isn't that what credit cards were made for?
