    If they don't draw 90,000+ for this weekend series, they never will.

    I'd think the Reds will draw very well this weekend.

    School is out, graduations are over, the weather is looking good, and the Reds are on a hot streak. Besides the core Reds fans that always show up, the garden variety Reds fan is a bandwagon jumper. And the wagon is a rollin' right now.

    125K fans isn't out of the question. I wouldn't be surprised to see a near-sellout or two.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    I'm guessing they have a large walk-up tomorrow night due to recent success, plus the favorable pitching match-up. Friday should be a large crowd, it is a fireworks night, and it was one of the ticket pack games.

    As for comparing this to the last time they came off of a road trip close to leaing/leading the division, I totally think it is a different situation. That one was the beginning of the week and bad weather as stated above. plus school was still in session and it was againt the Brewers.

    I look for big attendance numbers.

    I might make it tomorrow night, will definitely make it Saturday night, and will only miss Friday because it is our fifth wedding anniversary and I would like to stay together for more anniversaries. (even turned down a free ticket)

    I believe that on the last weekend homestand they had crowds in the 30+ range so yeah, they should do very well this weekend at the gates.

    The Reds fans will outnumber the Cubs fans and they may even be quieter and that's fine by me. The only reason the Cubs are so noticeable is because they scream so loudly and inappropriately. And the reason they do this is to make themselves appear to take up a lot of space, because in every other way they are small, small people.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    Danny Graves should pitch for the Cubs then.
    The Rally Onion wants 150 fans before Opening Day.

    Cubs fans should be banned from the entire region. Chicago fans in general are the worst behaving fans I have ever witnessed.

    For baseball, yes. You're forgetting Steelers fans.

    I don't follow American football so I can't comment on the Steelers.

    You dug up a six year old threat to make that point?

    I just joined this board a few days ago. I don't pay attention to the age of the posts. If I see something I feel compelled to comment on, so be it! If the thread is dead and buried, it should not be present on the board when new users sign up.

    I see now how old the thread is however, <egg on my face!>
