CWRU, I was very surprised the Indians didn't sell out the day of the parade. My dad and I left the parade slightly early to avoid the mob of people moving toward Tower City. When we got there, the cops already had the place shut down, so we went over to the Jake (I will not call it Progressive Field). The Indians were running a $16 ticket special which we took immediately, figuring the crowds would be coming right behind us. The box office lines were never more than 20 people deep and I don't think attendance was anything over 25k. Needless to say, my dad and I had plenty of room to spread out.
I understand the fans problem with the Dolans and their tightness with money but they need to realize that they have a winning baseball team right now. If I lived in Cleveland, I would try to make at least one game a week. The Indians are coming to DC for the first time in 10 years and I've had my tickets lined up for a couple months now. The Indians have most of their key pieces under control for the next 2-3 years but sometime after that, those guys will be traded for prospects and we'll fall back down for a few years. People need to buy-in now while the iron is hot.
