The 2019 MLB Attendance Report Is Out And The Miami Marlins Should Be Embarrassed To Show Their Faces In Public

Remember that episode of South Park when Cartman hid all the ballots from the 2012 presidential election at a Hummer dealership because he knew no one would ever go there?

A 2019 version of the same episode would feature Cartman hiding those ballots under the bleacher seats of Marlins Park, which also happens to be the safest place to go if you’re a fugitive on the run.

In May, I suggested that more people came to my 12th birthday party than showed up to the Rays/Marlins game. Which is saying something because I was a fucking loser!

Suffice it to say, attendance hasn’t spiked in the five months since, with the regular season coming to a close and the Marlins being dead last in the league in attendance–both overall and average.

They only play 70 home games.
