The White Sox will eventually get a new video board and it will be spectacular for a year or 2, then it will be average then people here will be saying its "embarrassing".

The Royals got a big new board in 2009. Their attendance hasn't reached 2008 levels since.
Here's another example. It's not exactly the same thing, but I think the point holds:

My kids (despite my best efforts) don't really like baseball. You know what my kids do like? Fundamentals. I'm not going to go back and look, but I bet some of these same arguments were made about it back then. But the thing is, when my kids like something, I do it more. That means that I'm going to more games and they're going to more games (which helps attendance a bit now), AND the fond memories of the park they're making now makes it more likely they'll become lifelong fans of the team in the future. So, one day, they're not going to be fans because they like Fundamentals in 20 years, but maybe they will be fans because they liked it now.

For some kids, their Fundamentals might be a really giant hightech scoreboard.
