Moment of Levity: The Big Picture


On Monday, the day portion of a day-night doubleheader between the Pirates and Reds drew barely 2,000 fans. A day matchup between those two teams drew more fans on Wednesday ... barely. If you ever wondered what a near 50,000-person stadium would look like with 2,000 people in it, that section in the background behind Pirates starter Zach Duke is a pretty good indication. Three-six people per section, throughought the park. Yikes. (Al Behrman/AP)

So the Pirates are drawing fewer people to their professional games than most high school football games in Texas do.

Andy Beyer should write the columns for the Nationals,Wizards,and Redskins.
For horse trainers,owners,and bettors,the solution is simple.When a horse stops winning,you sell him or her to the Amish,you turn them into dog food,or you turn them loose into the prairie and hope for mustangs.
You can't afford to feed them and keep up the vet bills for these four footed athletes.Even the horse rescue league has to raise vast amounts of money to keep them going.If it weren't for the manure,the gardeners would turn on them.
Two footed losers have managers and long term contracts.Maybe DC would have better luck turning these men out to pasture.
Title town has a wonderful ring to it.Loserville does not.If I didn't know any better I would say we've had the luck of the Republicans.
