The Ultimate Compliment
Anyone who reads this blog knows that I am a total homer for the Tampa Bay Rays. I love the team, I’ve been attending about 50 games a year since ’98 and win or lose, I always find a positive about the game. I have got a few e-mails this year (since I have started this blog) from members of the Rays organization, a few people have told me that players read it in the clubhouse sometimes (probably to make fun of me) and that is really cool. Today I got a note in the mail from former Devil Rays third basemen and current Manager of the Princeton Rays, Jared Sandberg. Their PR contact told me that Jared read the blog, but I was really surprised to get this note from Mr. Sandberg himself. If you can't read his handwriting, it says "Marck-Thanks for your support! Keep cheering as loud as you can, the Rays need help drowning out the Red Sox Nation and crazy Yankee fans!" Thanks Jared, I will keep on cheering. Go Rays! Troll out!
