The line for single-game tickets outside #Marlins Park, less than 30 min before they go on sale

I was certain every possible joke about baseball attendance in Florida had been exhausted over the past 20 years. Then I saw the tweet by Joe Capozzi of the Palm Beach Post that included the photo (below) from the Miami Marlins Winter Warm Up event Saturday and realized we haven’t even scratched the surface.
The Marlins have used up all of the goodwill a new taxpayer-funded stadium gave them just a year ago.

I think this says something favorable about folks from Florida as opposed to the mega liberal Red Sox zombies from Mass. who would be camped out overnight to sit in the most uncomfortable, overpriced park in the country but couldn’t tell you the last time they stepped foot in a church.

Why you never do taxpayer funded stadiums.

And for you Jeb Bush cheerleaders.....he helped the Fish get taxpayer money for the new Fish Bowl in Miami. Most of Miami-Dade is Third World.....no money or interest in baseball

Good point. Also its extremely early for baseball.

I’ve got friends who live on the Atlantic coast of Florida and make several trips to Lakeland every spring.

We get longer lines than this here for Spring Training games. Of course, we have the Cubs and a bunch of well-heeled retired Snowbirds here, too.

Been to the new park a couple times when my Bro-in-law has unused tickets.

Very nice place. But you have to drive through the ghetto, which is downtown miami, to get there.

If the average American idiot had any brains of self respect, that would be the turnout for every major league sporting event.

Yep, it’s on the site of the old Orange Bowl, it wasn’t a good neighborhood even back then.

parents never left the house after dark from

fear from those gangs
