How do you sell this team to fans? If two fans were standing here right now and asked why should we spend our money to go see your product, what do you tell them?
First I'd tell them that when you get to Safeco Field you are going to have a safe, friendly environment. You are going to be sitting in a first-class ballpark. You are going to get great entertainment. It's a great place to come whether it's at the Pen or at Edgar's or wherever. So there's a lot of things going on at Safeco Field for the fans to enjoy besides watching Major League Baseball. And I would point that out to them many of our fans are thinking about things other than just what's on the field, so we have to provide a really good entertainment experience across the board as well as getting that major league team to perform.
Second [we've got good young talent yada yada]
No, Mariners tickets are usually super-cheap. You can walk up and get a seat for like fifteen bucks. And it's a safe, friendly environment!
So I was very disappointed, probably more disappointed than any season than I’ve gone through, but there were good things that happened. And I think our fans see that too.
My aunt and uncle live in Olympia. He was actually stationed on Whidbey Island and they fell in love with the state a long time ago (late 70s, early 80s).
FWIW, I drove through Seattle on a beautiful summer (Sunday) day. The scene on the 5 coming into downtown was breathaking. I realize that those days are few and far between (went to Pike's Place on previous Friday and it was grey and ugly out). On a perfect day, Seattle might be the most beautiful downtown I have been to.
Outside of summer, though, yeah the weather is godawful.
