And according to the estimate of the blog BleedCubbieBlue
there were only 34,000 at the game.
At one time the Tribune could hardly report a Sox home game without using the sneering expression, "announced attendance."
It's funny now that Haugh is oblivious to all those folks in the stands wearing Wrigley seat camouflage.
You made it a whole week into the season without the obsession. I applaud your restraint. Let's go for all of April next year.
Ridiculousness across all sports:
(1) "You have no valid opinion because you never played the game."
(2) "Stats are irrelevant. This guy just doesn't know how to win."
