Hey Sam! Let Ben finish his sentences, or even paragraphs, occasionally. Still a good podcast. Good work guys.

It's partially that I am, genuinely, a rude human being, and for that I'm sorry. It's also partially that I hear everything he says a quarter-second later than he says it, and you know how that is. But I'll try! I like to hear Ben talk, too.

I don't notice or mind that this happens, if it happens. I interrupt Sam sometimes, too.

I think you can chalk the attendance up to three things. Bad stadiums (Rays,A's), bad teams (Marlins, Astros, White Sox, Mariners), and historically bad teams that are improving but the fan base hasn't jumped on the bandwagon (Indians, Royals). I think the Sox should be most concerned. They are not loveable losers like their Northside brethren, but being in Chicago should put your attendance higher than San Diego, Minnesota, and Milwaukee.

I 100% agree on rooting for the A's. The games have a true feeling of the game in the 80s, before the corporations and ticket brokers took over the game.
