Darlene Pomroy: Can’t stand it at games!

November 8, 2013 

It was such a pleasure reading Barry Saunders’ Oct. 28 column “Late starts costing baseball.” I wish to add that such late games are also very difficult for most adults to watch until the end as well. And I wish Saunders would expound on local college football games, too, but for another reason. Four of us mature adults went to the UNC-Miami game and watched it on the video screens because we couldn’t see over the attendees standing in front of us. I have learned that our $60 seats gave us a “space” to use as desired even though our tickets called it our “seats.” Nowhere have I ever seen such abuse of a game ticket-holder – N.Y. Jets, N.Y. Rangers, live theater, movies. Attendees need to sit in their seats, at least most of the time. Help us football fans with a seating section. That’s where we want to be.
