3 Questions For the Fans

It's Monday and my mind is wandering.  Just a few questions I had over the weekend.

1. How many Spartan fans are sellouts?
I put it at about 18,500.  At least a quarter of the stadium Saturday was Ohio State fans.  For 13 students the prospect of making $100 when season tickets are $140 was just too much I guess.  (That's how many garnet shirts I counted in the student section which was all white.)  Maybe I'm upset b/c I gave up $70 to have my fingernails torn out, but c'mon, half the upper deck was OSU fans.  Yeah, capitalism.

2.  Am I the only MTV fan who misses the 80's version where MTV actually stood for music television?
Probably not.  Do they even play music anymore?  I used to rock out to MTV for hours, b/c THEY PLAYED MUSIC.  Now I think you need MTV 3 to see videos.  The shows in the 80's played music-- Yo! MTV Raps, Headbanger's Ball, Top 10 Countdown (Yeah, it wasn't always TRL, tweens.)  I miss the Ed Lover dance to DJ Kool.  I think there should be something illegal about watching some of these "dramas" that border on Teen-Cinemax.  And the videos have no imagination like the 80's.  All I know is, when my friend said Saturday that one of her favorite shows on all of TV was "The Hills," I longed for the days of Diamond Dave.

3.  How short of a memory do Boston Red Sox fans have?
Apparently pretty short.  Thursday night, fans started filing out in the 7th inning when they fell behind 7-0 to the Rays in Game 5.  Yeah, it's an unlikely comeback from 7 down in the 7th, but this is the team that came back from 3 games to none to beat the Yankees.  You were down 3-1 to Cleveland last year and won.  Of course, they came back and won dramatically in the 10th, 8-7, won game 6 before losing Game 7 last night.  I would never leave a game again if I was a Red Sox fan.  But, I'm a Spartan fan and we leave in the 3rd quarter.
