I am not typically a negative guy and I am actually fairly optimistic about this year's team but for today, everything sucks. It is my birthday and I am pretty depressed about how things are going. Nobody has even wished me happy birthday yet and given that birthdays at this age are largely about taking stock this is not where I wanted to be at 31.
I have moved back to Canada and this winter has just broken. It has been rough and not only that, I have had major trouble finding a job in my field in a down economy. Given that, I have had to take an entry level job in my field and the prospect of not being able to see the A's at all this year, maybe ever again, is very real. I have not been able to race this year due to not being able to afford to pay for or travel to races. I was going to run this one.
We just had our A's host a three game set in which we did not draw more than 16,384 fans. This of course will ad to the tedious BS that is the wider Bay Area's media support of the Giants, even though we have always had a better product in terms of team success.
In fact, we have only drawn only over 22K once and that was against the Red Sox on opening night with a large number of their fans in the stands. Sigh.......
Its Monday, it is bleak, and this link dump sucks, just like everything else.
