    It's a soccer town! 35000+ at every game. Oh and I guess I should mention that some folks kinda like the Seahawks as well. ;)

    I'm concerned that the teams name is an affront to all who currently serve or have served in the maritime industry. I think a name change is in order...and this forum has the talent pool to come up with some good one's. Is Rodriguez starting at short tomorrow?

    I am a baseball fan and the Mariners are the team I watch the most. I also enjoy going to a game in person from time to time. Considering what is on tv these days even watching a losing team beats most everything else on the tube.

    I'm almost sorry I started this thread. They just won their 5th in a row and are one game out of first. This will probably jinx them and they will start a losing trend. Ha, Ha, Ha.

    “No matter how good you are, you're going to lose one-third of your games. No matter how bad you are you're going to win one-third of your games. It's the other third that makes the difference.”
    ― Tommy Lasorda

    It just seems that the M's lose a third (and a half of that other third) before they win their share of the winning third, so that last third never really matters!

    What's the best avenue to get tickets for a good price? I was thinking of taking my family to a game when we are up at the end of the month.

    You should all become Sounders fans and go to their matches instead of Mariners games. The Sounders win and the team wants to win for their fans...the Mariners seem like they couldn't give two shits how the fans feel as long as they get their paychecks, especially management.

    It is simple; I hate soccer. It is the most boring sport on the planet. A simple minded sport for the simple minded masses. Every wonder why it is the most watch sport in the world? Think about it. Uuuuuu duh.

    Also, a team that is contending for first place in thier division and has gone 7 and 2 in thier recent road trip against some of the best teams in the league (minus Houston) is a team that cares about winning.
