Some thoughts from high atop the Skybox on Sheffield.
I haven’t seen Wrigley’s seats this empty on a game day in more than three years.
The official attendance for Thursday’s game is listed at 35,174. That must be tickets paid or they’re now counting passengers on the Red Line.
Large sections of the upper deck were empty, especially down the left field line.
For certain, the weather was poor: overcast, rainy and a bit chilly, but empty seats, c’mon. This had to be the smallest crowd all season.
I’m not saying unfilled seats are a bad thing, either. What better way to show our frustrations and disappointments than by boycotting the ol’ ballyard?
