The real fans

The Minnesota Twins have released one of those GigaPan pictures of yesterday’s opening day crowd — stitched together, super clear panorama shots that allow you to “tag” yourself and other friends. Find it here.

I could spend hours on these sorts of things, looking for embarrassing poses by unsuspecting fans.

This latest one, however, is worth looking for a good view of the real baseball fans.

And here they are:




It was 5:22 p.m., the 7th inning, the Twins trailing by and yet these two are hanging in in some of the worst seats in the park, upper deck, last row, right field. They could’ve moved down to much better seats, but they stayed.

The worst fans in the place?

Here they are, disguised as empty seats.

    I want all the pro-Vikings stadium people to see the last photo. Opening Day? Opening Day! A new stadium does not guarantee that people will come or that a team will do well! (Can you imagine an Opening Day crowd like this at Fenway?)
