I caught the tail end of the Mark Viviano Show on 105.7 The Fan this morning and I’m fired up.
You’ve been forewarned.
Before the game a received a text message from someone attending the game that told me there were an awful lot of Chiefs fans at M&T Bank Stadium.
Today, I hear via Viviano’s show that fans were leaving the game before the game was even over. Unbelievable.
I’ve complained about how terrible Orioles fans are here in Baltimore, even coined the phrase “I went to a hot dog race and a baseball game broke out.” But, this one really grinds my gears.
Ravens fans were leaving in the fourth quarter? You’ve got to be kidding me.
This is Baltimore people. The Colts snuck out of town in the middle of a snowy March night in 1984. We were then ripped off by the NFL who placed two teams in smaller (crappier) markets, Jacksonville and Carolina. And it wasn’t until Art Modell moved the Browns in 1996 that pro football returned to Charm City. We wanted football back in our town forever and this is how we treat it?
I hate the excuses. It was too hot, public transportation lines are too long, the game was over. Too bad.
We wait all year for football to begin, we get eight home games and we leave early?
You want to be compared to the elite franchises? The Pittsburghs, New Englands, and Green Bays? Stop whining and keep your butt in the seat til the end of the game.
