This has probably all been said before but.......
I recently moved from Pasadena, MD to Jacksonville, FL and have been struck by such things as the local concern of the Jags struggling to fill the stadium and avoid blackouts-- the jag's owner writes a check to the NFL for every unsold non-premium seat to avoid them currently- and have remodeled the stadium to create LESS seats but more premium ones or at least different type ones that they can call premium.
Its just a big culture shock to me to hear about worrying about filling the stadium on game days after being a Ravens PSL holder since the Ravens came to be and been a part of Ravens fever since day one.
Yet, the folks out and about all talk up the team even in the off-season there is buzz all around about the Jags, I usually wear Ravens shirts and there is never an outing that I don't draw comments, friendly rivalry type-- and the town seems actually more sports-nuts than Baltimore overall, maybe its just they're so much into the colleges the NFL takes a back seat.
