Re(1): Amateur Jai Alai Survives

Much good news, MC, H2H, etc.

Traditional needed a giant audience which was finished several decades back. I took a trip to Miami around 2011, and it was sad. Few dozen fans-one awful concession stand. Traditional has simply been on a respirator since. It was a hostage to other forms of gambling. A relic of its short Ct hey-dey (15 years max), and a few more solid Fl decades.

My ex employer had bigger crowds at their softball games than Miami 2011-LOL. Last year, Stu said he visited there if I recall-similar "crowd".

In Ct, the drastic drop in audience was right after the late 80s strike. The combo of strike/giant casinos even got Milford into small, intimate gatherings by the early 90s, so quiet, I could hear the HVAC humming during game breaks.
