All the talking heads say the Rays have no fans and that we don’t deserve a team. But how do we know the talking heads aren’t crazy glue sniffers that sneak into your house, take money off the dresser and knock your daughter up? Because clearly, the talking heads never do any, you know, actual research.
Take yesterday’s local TV ratings for the ALDS. Game 1 drew a 5.9 rating in Dallas-Ft. Worth. Meanwhile, the same game had a 9.6 rating in the Tampa-St. Pete market.
We believe that would make game 1 one of the five most watched Rays games this season. Not bad for mid-week afternoon game with schools in session.
Baby steps, Raysheads. Baby steps.
