Just read up on it. Some people are idiots. I won't take my kids to a MLB game right now, mostly because the fans around here are jerks at the stadium. Thankfully, we have great minor league teams with beautiful stadiums and family friendly atmospheres.

I am friends with a copule here who are from the East Coast and are Red Sox fans. J said that for a long time, you couldn't take your kids to a REd Sox game, ESPECIALLY if they were playing the Yankers, because it was just too inappropriate for families -- vulgar language, lots of overly drunk fans, etc. Then the REd Sox realized they were losing future fans this way, and they cleaned up their act. You can report fans for swearing, excessive drunkeness, and "Yankees Suck" shirts are no longer allowed. They said it's gotten much better.

Yankees do suck, though.

Steve Irwin was the Crocodile Hunter guy. He was killed by a ray when it stung him with its tail.

Sorry, I missed reading that post. Probably why I asked the question.
You mentioned about sub and his work, so I was wondering if maybe the reason you post so much is because you do NOT work and have lots of free time.
Why the heck is is such a big deal to answer a yes or no question?
<quoted text>
Let's see -- I have 1 other post today on this thread and you have 6. Your position of me "posting so much" is interesting.

I'm not making it a big deal answering a question. I asked you s simple question of why and you had to be proded twice.

Steve Irwin aka Crocodile Hunter, was killed while filming underwater. He got too close to a stingray and it's barb went into his heart. Died almost instantly.

Yankees games are horrible. People are already drunk when the games start and dropping the f bomb during the national anthem.

Steve Irwin was killed by a stingray.

You'll have to speak a bit louder. Its a bit hard for noise to penetrate the wall built by 27 World Series trophies.

Iith the money spent on slaries for that team over the years, it is proof that you can buy anything.

Exactly. The Yankers can take very little pride in those trophies. I love when underdog teams with much smaller payrolls beat them.

I also have been on her since 2009, she has been here less than a year, so as it stands I post about 450 post a month and she is running @300 Not a huge diff, and she is still new to the game.

OMG from the carolyn hax live chat:

Friends in need
Hi Carol, Our friend's wife lost her job several years ago and they have had a tough time since then. Because my husband and I are in a fortunate position, we buy them grocery gift cards periodically. We recently found out that our friend's wife has turned down several jobs because "they don't feed my soul." We are aghast and do not want to continue to help them. However, they literally do not have food on their table some weeks. Should we say something or just stop helping them? Thanks!

Carolyn Hax :
Stop helping, say nothing.

I'm not sure whether typing that fed my soul or snatched its plate away, but the answer makes sense to me regardless.

I could not care less what a team's bankroll is. The NBA has a salary cap and a luxury tax penalty for those who go over the cap. You think the small town team that wins while staying under the cap has more to celebrate than the big city team that's paying the luxury tax? I think you're in the minority. I think most people want their team to win period and don't care about the payroll.
