FanPost

It looks like Yahoo's Jeff Passan gets it

Jeff Passan wrote an article in Yahoo Sports about the Ray's difficulty in drawing fans despite their success on the field.  Today, they gave away 20,000 tickets, one of which went to me, but alas we lost.  Anyway, Passan wrote an article about which cities qualify as "baseball cities," and he included this gem in the middle of his article.

"Well, it’s grim. Chicago, perhaps, though the city’s North-South baseball divisions vanish for the Bears. While Minneapolis bought the Twins stadium, the outpouring of love for Brett Favre and the Vikings every Sunday usurps that for baseball. Los Angeles doesn’t even have a professional football team now that USC is on probation, and baseball finishes a distant second to Lakers basketball."

Nice work, Jeff.  You surely understand the way things work at Figueroa JC.
