Re: The Howl
Comparing football environments -- especially college football -- with MLB is foolish IMO.
There are 12 college football games a year. Only 6-7 home games. There are 162 baseball games. 81 home games. Of course a college football game is treated as some huge event. It is. It's like having 14 baseball games wrapped into one. If the Reds were playing one game that counted 14 games in the standings, you don't think there would be bigger hype surrounding the game? You don't think there would be much bigger attendance? You don't think people would be tailgating just like they would for a football game?
Baseball is different. You start tailgating before every baseball game and you're going to end up losing your job, perhaps end up in the hospital, maybe even dead. Gotta pace yourself during a 162-game slate.
