Remember the days when kids were a lot of the fans at a ball game with a glove on to catch foul balls with? Hell will they even let you in the park anymore with a ball glove? Before long you will have to watch a ball game from behind bulletproof glass. Staring through nets to watch a game? Screw that, if I have to see the losers play that bad I will just watch from home and that probably not going to happen either.
