View Full Version : How many fans will we have in Tampa?

There are a lot of chicago retirees in the Tampa / St. Petersburg area and I was hoping that we would collect a lot of the gate down there. So what do you think 15% sox fans? 30% ?

In my opinion, if they are old and retired, they won't play a huge factor in cheering for the team. They'll be there to watch, but won't be on their feet every time a TB hitter has 2 strikes on him, etc. Now if there are fans in surrounding areas making the trip, then that'll make a difference. But I wouldn't count on the "retirees" helping the Sox out down there.

I'll be there. The lottery for tickets was a week or so ago, but tickets aren't outrageous on stubhub. Hop a flight, Sox fans!

Tickets for those games in Tampa are almost a bargain on craigslist. Plenty of tickets for $50-75.

My Dad and I arrived in Tampa a couple of hours ago, so that's two more Sox fans!

I'll be driving up from Miami with a classmate who's a Rays fan hopefully. I don't have a car so it's up to him. He has a test on Friday and Saturday is FSU vs. Miami down here, so he's not sure if he wants to go, but he has a hookup on tickets through his mom, who gets tickets from work.

I really hope we can go!
