Perhaps this is what I was trying to explain the other day when 83-43 and I had a disagreement.
I wasn't surprised last night when I saw the game on TV. The walkout was a poor idea. The best bet for the boycotters is to do just that, boycott. Not to go, like X said.
The truth of it is, the entire thing is going to be a bust. There are too many people who have gone to Pirates games for generations with their families, and their families, and so on.
Its a city of champions and it sucks to have a bad baseball team, but there is WAY too much city pride to abandon the Pirates.
