    Hope this is no D-B, but I thought this was note-worthy. Longest period of straight sellouts comes to an end in Boston. I just thought it was interesting.

    It was always kind of a bogus streak because it has the fewest seats of any park in the majors, but still, 10 years is a long time to draw 30,000-plus every night when other teams are sometimes happy to see 10,000.

    Come on, that record was about as bogus as the loving marriage between Rick Pitino and his wife I kept reading earlier this week.

    And the Cubs are seeing a decline in attendance as well, right?

    Guess there's really no bulletproof solution for bring people out to watch lousy baseball teams.

    As crappy as the weather is in Chicago today, there may be more Giants fans than Cubs fans at Wrigley.

    I saw a Giants -Cubs game that looked like it only had a couple of thousand fans becasue of the weather. But what are Cub season ticket sales?i

    I'm glad to say I was a part of the two longest sellout streaks in MLB history at least. Went to a Red Sox game in 2006 and a Indians game in 1999.
