Re(2): Has Miami made an official announcement they are done with jai alai ? Posted on November 7, 2021 at 12:56:43 PM by Andrew Allman
Stu, I used to really enjoy when you did insightful, exciting commentary and announcing at traditional Jai Alai back in the day, so don’t take this personally.
For some of us, Magic City and the short court type game really do not excite certain people to watch (myself included). We just don’t really get it. Especially in the way they picked the players from other sports instead of legit amateur Jai Alai players. Im sure that alone would leave a bad taste in some mouths. I’m sure there were enough real amateur players to fill that roster. As you said previously, “it’s not for everybody.”
I think people would like to see another season of ANY traditional Jai Alai and are just not wanting to see it die off. I realize that the sport has been leaving us for the last twenty years or so, but a ceremony of some sort would be nice. Especially from “the Yankee stadium of Jai Alai”.
As for the diehards…..even if you just see 7 of them in person, I’m sure there are many more like me that don’t reside in south Florida and are watching online.
Unfortunately, us in certain states can’t even bet on the games. I would love to make a final trip down for a last season. Replies:
