Yes, I know it’s done in fun but this is not ‘BASEketball‘. Some of us are already deeply annoyed by the obnoxious and very loud Marlins Mermaids, now we have to watch as some poor, deluded 400-lbs. “men” go onto the baseball field and dance in skimpy outfits? I guess whatever works to get the worst baseball town in America to come out to a few extra games, right?
Also, there is this new stadium “deal” that was finally worked out last week. Unfortunately, it came one winter too late as we lost out on the two faces of the franchise, and thousands of fed-up, jaded fans. Now the team is moving out to the deepest part of Miami and everyone up North is complaining. Well, I live in South Broward and on any given day it takes me no less than 30 minutes to drive to the stadium. From what it sounds like, I am going to have to add another 20-25 minutes to my drive just to see my team lose. Oh, did I forget to mention that we will soon have to call them the Miami Marlins? Ouch.
I guess it could be worse. We could be the Tampa Bay Rays. Hell, if I see this guy just once during games I attend this season, I think I will pack my things and move up North to Tampa. I will even risk dying of Cancer from the Tampa smog if it means not seeing these horrible Marlins Manatees.
