Fair Weather Fans

Fair weather fans get a bad rap from the truly obsessed. But I like fair weather fans. If it weren’t for them, there’d be no economic incentive at all on team owners to put good teams on the playing field.

So if you’ve stopped watching the Twins lately. Good. Sure, you’ve missed some cool stuff (Denard Span got three triples in one game, which is almost as amazing as Jim Thome getting one triple the day before). But at least, turning your attention elsewhere, you show the Twins frontoffice they can’t just ignore the holes in their roster.

Just imagine all the bad teams that would still be around if it weren’t for fair weather fans. Cleveland Spiders? Chicago Cubs? Imagine a world where those teams were still playing.
