how to prevent red sox fans from invading your park

over on ESPN's page, there is an article by buster oleney that i cannot read (since i don't feel like springing for an insider account. yes, i'm that cheap). but, the jist, from what i can read of it, is that tony gwynn is/was pissed that PETCO park was taken over by boston fans for the weekend series against his former and beloved padres.

tony, i've got no sympathy for you. or, frankly, for any team, in any city, that complains about being invaded by sox fans when boston is in town. why? because it's very easy to prevent visiting fans from overwhelming the home crowd. buy tickets for your fucking hometown team. if you don't want to be overrun by opposing fans, don't allow for it. if you don't support your team, then don't complain if fans who are rabid followers of theirs take over your park. cause it's your own fault.

I had a subscription to Insider for a few years but cancelled it when I realized I never used it. It's not worth it.

i figured that. though i did used to enjoy rob neyer's column. but not enough to pay for it.

Well, I've never been pissed off about it but, as you know, I do think it's kind of sad . . . .
