In an attempt to boost crappy attendance numbers, the Tampa Bay Rays announced a $5 ticket flash sale last week. The 5,000 discounted tickets were made available for five home games, and the Rays only sold out of two of those games.
The desperate attempt to fill seats at the Trop comes after years of a steady decline in attendance.
The only team with worse attendance is the Miami Marlins.
With the lease at Tropicana Field ending in 2027, the team’s low attendance will play a major role in whether or the team will stay in Florida.
Sean Roberts was conceived in the Corvette Assembly Plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky by two passionate, panel aligning, third shifters who had grown bored with the same ole same ole. Upon birth, he was placed in the trunk of a new Stingray and sent off to find his destiny.
That destiny included several stints on radio stations across the United States. Some played punk country gospel, while others focused on Croatian death metal played backwards.
After many years and many adventures, Sean wound up on The Shark, where he does shots of tequila while playing the most badass tunes ever created by humankind.
He remains humble, however, never forgetting about the lean years...the street corners and dark alleys where he played songs on his car stereo for food and sex.
He's on top and he's never gonna stop LIVING THE DREAM!
