Re: Yellow Empty Seats
The empty seats have little to do with the weather. They have more to do with the ticket prices and who is buying tickets more nowadays. This obviously doesn't go for all fans at the game, but every year more and more are well to do folks, business owners who take clients to games...the wine and cheese crowd. Those are the folks who, in inclement weather, go and watch the game from the inside.
I'm one of those that would love to go to all the home games, and stay the whole time to cheer my team on...but blue collar folks, less and less, have hundreds of dollars to drop on a game. Back when tickets were realistically priced and the economy wasn't f-ed, all the die hards could afford to show up every week.
People assume that time is a strict progression of cause and effect, but actually from a non-linear non-subjective viewpoint it's more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly timey wimey...stuff.
