A Salute to You Group of Hardcore Marlins Fans at the Game Today

This is just a quick post dedicated to a group of roudy Marlins fans who were seated about 20 rows behind the plate at this evening's game against the Nats:

With the Marlins down 9-4 in the 8th inning and Mike Jacobs at the plate (who had a terrible game in every way), you took it upon yourselves to spark the crowd. You proceeded to chant Let's Go Marlins!!! repeatedly, non-stop, without hesitation, for the entire at-bat which went to a 3-2 count where Jacobs inevitably struck out.

First of all, this was not a short at-bat, at least 5 minutes long. Secondly, not another soul in the entire stadium joined in on your rant, but you continued to cheer, tirelessly, without any indication of humiliation. Thirdly, no Marlins fan was the slightest bit excited at this point in the game, but for some reason you believed this to be a pivotal time with no one on base down 9-4. You had made hardly a peep until that point, even when the Marlins were rallying (Alcohol may have been a factor). And, lastly, you had the rugged, irritating, dirty-sounding voice that all-together resulted in a cacophony of ugly yelling.

Your dedication will not be forgotten.
