azcentral.com blogs | DanBickley: Why the roof matters

3

Read the comments, and i swear they are not from me! I thought the atmosphere at games had been improving, but the two comments I have below could have been me from 2 or 3 years ago.. Ignoring the fact this is from Bickley, what are your thoughts on the topic he raises? posted by altair on Apr 7, 2009 at 11:49 AM I went to a DBack game and got yelled at for cheering by an old pastor of a church group. Apparently, I had interrupted his nap. If you wanna have fun, go to a Cards or Coyotes game. If you want peace and serenity and crotchety old people - go see the DBacks or Suns. posted by sndvlALUM on Apr 7, 2009 at 01:58 PM I heard the president/ceo explain why the roof was shut and it basically is this, "our fans are old people and people who aren't actually baseball fans, we're ok with that and we're going to kiss their ass as much as we need to" Piecoro has a piece about this too, but not quite the angle Bickley does; it's here: http://www.azcentral.com/members/Blog/NickPiecoro/50206
