It's one thing when a person has disposable income but I'm not in the habit of judging people by how much money they have or spend. Personally, I have spent ridiculous amounts of money on U2, the Sock and Bears games but I don't consider my self to be a bigger/better fan than anyone else. Using dollar amounts to rank fandom reeks of elitist bullshit to me.
Agreed. I certainly can't go to as many Red Sox games as I used to as I've got a family to support and more responsibility to them than a sport, yet it doesn't make me any less of a fan.

Make that 2 dingers on the day. 3 homeruns in 3 games since the callup, incredible.

I'm a Yankee fan and neither can I. The past few weeks, I've been hoping for the wildcard, but, the division is now a possibility. I still think the Sox have the best team in baseball, especially with Schilling back and pitching like he did today. Gagne blew the lead today.

Please feel free to win your division, Yankees. We'll be happy in Seattle with a wild card berth.

Although we'd REALLY prefer you not be in the playoffs at all, as we can beat you any old time we please ... except, apparently, in the playoffs.

Weaver pitched a hell of a game for the Mariners today, I miss that guy.

I'd laugh if the Yankees won the division and the Mariners won the wild card and Boston got left out altogether.

As far as renovations go, the upper deck wasn't fixed until the year after the All-Star game. The fan deck and new LED scoreboard was added in 2003 All-Star year though.
So, now you are discounting fandom by saying ou would stop "buying the product" when the "quality diminishes"? So, in other words, you should give up cheering for a team because they do not have a winning record? Just give the loyalty up when the when the quality drops? Drop em like a lousy pair of jeans?

As for the ballpark, I remember seeing the new overhang on the ballpark BEFORE the All Star game. I cannot find anything except Wikipedia info...and I am not going to rely on that.

Man, what a crazy day!

A couple of days ago, my bro gets comped some Mets tix up in the mezzanine box seats for Sunday's game. The Mets and the Marlins both play a sloppy game, but the Mets bang 4 home runs to beat Florida, 10-4. Oh yeah, Moises Alou hit 2 of those home runs.

Then, of course, there's the Yanks moving to only 4 games behind Boston in the AL East.

After the Mets game, we stopped off at the Lemon Ice King of Corona, which easily has the best Lemon Ices in the entire world! I got a peanut butter lemon ice. I'm a major peanut butter addict. Then it was back home on the Long Island Expressway east.

Pins and needles time as a Red Sox fan. The Yankees offense is SCARY right now.

Fortunately, I've got two horses in the American League. Go Mariners! (Nobody saw this kind of season coming out of them this year.)

Thank you White Sox for rolling over and playing dead this weekend. Oy.

Here's hoping that the AL Divisional and Wildcard battles are tight and go down to the wire.

If the Yankees win the division, we (the Sox) will be the wild card. So let's just work together to keep the Yankees out of the playoffs.

I completely agree, a baseball/sports team is totally different from another product. Part of it is about loyalty regardless of how good or bad the team is. If you aren't in it no matter what, then you are the definition of a bandwagon fan, plain and simple.

This Yankees-Red Sox thing ... I don't know how to describe my thoughts, but I'm not surprised.
