Yours is an unrealistic view of a crowd at a sporting event. I do not doubt this event happened, as we have all seen it at a number of games, because those peopel *are* there, at every stadium. But the overall generalization is just offbase.
And agree on King's "some of you would rather be next to empty seats" comment. We saw that on these boards in 2006, and see it on occasion when the park is packed.
