I learned something from reading this thread. I had no idea so many of you guys feel the same way about going to games as I do. Very interesting. Lots of comments made that I totally agree with like prices, time invested, being able to do other shit while a game is on (that’s why I like listening on the radio).
- back in the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s I went to several Indians games a year. Haven’t been to one in about 15 years.
- in those same decades, I would go to several home Browns games a year, even becoming a season ticket holder for about 5 years. I quit that when they started including the pre-season games into the package and then the final straw was the PSL’s. I was so pissed about Modell moving the Browns even though they came back, I have never been to First Energy. (BR - I did not know you have never been to a Browns game. I’m shocked!)
- the Cavs.....I’m an original fan and attended games at the old Cleveland Arena. I remained a fan up to the Price/Daugherty era. Since then, I have not been a fan and become disinterested in the NBA. I am happy that LeBron did bring a championship here, and that is all where he is concerned.
So I enjoy following my teams by being at home and drinking as much beer as I want.
