I’ll admit that I’ve lost interest in the Blue Jays.
I began noticing a slip in attention just after the All-Star break.
It’s not a surprising revelation, considering Toronto is last in the A-L East at 69-and-81, 22 games out of 1st place.
But as bad as things may seem with the Bluebirds, hey, at least I don’t cheer for the Houston Astros.
Thank goodness I don’t.
The ‘Stros will have the worst record in the majors for the third straight season, currently sitting at 51-and-100.
Barely anyone is attending their games and even less are watching on TV.
On Sunday, paid attendance was announced at just over 21-thousand, but there were nowhere near that many people in the ballpark.
Houston, by the way, is the 4th largest city in the U.S.
The Neilson TV rating for the Astros-Angels game on CSN Houston was 0.04, which translated to 1-thousand people.
A WNBA game on NBA TV, which went head-to-head with the Astros game for more than two hours, was seen by an average of 1,500 viewers in the Houston market.
A WNBA game!
Houston… you definitely have a problem.
