Regarding the Dodgers' 14-inning, 5-4 victory Monday night: really, SF Comical writer Bruce Jenkins, is this the best you can do?
It was understandable that only a few hundred fans were around to witness the end of a 5-hour, 29-minute affair, but this was a night of monumentally inappropriate attendance in Southern California. Even in the heart of a close game, around 8:30 p.m., there were thousands of empty seats. That just doesn’t happen anywhere else when two storied rivals contest the heart of a pennant race.
We had 40,851 attendance at that game. On a Monday night.
Your birdshit stadium averages around about the same attendance, 41K, this year on a Monday night (of which you've had few Monday night home games, thanks to your cushy schedule).
Might I remind you how sparse your home crowds are:
And why may no one want to come near AT&T Park? Oh, yeah:
It's the birdshit.
